Hello SAP S/4HANA Cloud (public deployment option) Certified Community,
Starting with the 2202 release, there will be changes to how you stay current with SAP Certification for the lines of business and Professional Services industry certifications for SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
SAP S/4HANA Cloud (public deployment option) is moving from a quarterly to a bi-annual Stay Current assessment schedule
Stay Current content and assessments will be made available for the Q1 and Q3 releases only, which means that you will only need to pass 2 assessments per year to maintain your certification credential.
Schedule for 2022:
Q1 (January 26, 2022. 2202 SC deadline is May 13, 2022)
To maintain your SAP Certification credential, you must successfully complete the related stay current content and assessments before each period’s deadline. If you fail to complete an assessment for a certification you are holding, you will no longer be certified and will need to take the respective core exam again to re-certify. The SAP Certification team will send you an email to announce the start of a new stay current period with relevant information and deadlines. Please read that email carefully. The web application which hosts your content and assessment will also let you know how long the assessment will be valid and a count-down to the expiration date. There will also be a banner in the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Implementation Learning Room to inform you of stay current deadlines.

How to Access Stay Current content and assessments
Stay current content and assessments are only accessible via the SAP Learning Hub. You must have an individual SAP Learning Hub subscription (professional, solution, partner edition or internal edition) to access stay current content and assessments.
Log in to SAP Learning Hub and view My Learning Plan, or click View all and scroll to My Active Courses.
If you cannot find the content in your active courses, view the SAP Learning Journey for the solution you are certified in and scroll to Stay current.
Receiving reminders from the SAP Certification team
Reminder 1: SAP Certification will send you an announcement when new stay current content and assessments are available and include information about the deadline for completion.
Reminder 2: SAP Certification will send you a reminder four weeks prior to the stay current deadline.
Q:When will stay current content and assessments for SAP S/4HANA Cloud solutions be available for me to complete in SAP Learning Hub?
A: Stay current content and assessments will be available on RTC in Q1 and Q3. You have approximately 3.5 months (depending on when you passed the core exam) to complete the assessment and maintain your certification and badge. Actual release dates and deadlines will be made available in the email notifications sent to you by SAP Certification. Also see above schedule/deadlines.
Q:Will I receive any reminders or notifications from SAP Certification as to when a stay current assessment is available?
A: Yes, all certified individuals will receive an announcement via email when the latest stay current content and assessment become available on the SAP Learning Hub, then you will receive a reminder approximately four weeks prior to the deadline, so that you don’t miss the opportunity to maintain your certification and badge.
Q:What happens if I do not complete the assessment during the stay current period, missing the deadline?
A: Your SAP Certification and its associated digital badge will expire. There is no grace period, so please complete the stay current requirements prior to the deadline. To be certified again and to reenter the program to stay current, you must complete the latest certification in the Certification Hub. This re-certification attempt will count towards your available exam attempts for SAP Certification regardless of whether you are using the Certification Hub or an SAP Learning Hub edition that includes exam attempts.
Q:Will each stay current assessment count as an exam attempt for SAP Certification in my Certification Hub subscription or SAP Learning Hub edition that includes exam attempts?
A: No, stay current assessments are not core certification exams, and therefore will not count as an exam attempt. Stay current assessments use SAP Learning Hub web assessments and are part of your SAP Learning Hub subscription.
