Dieter,

A couple of questions I have taken the SAP Certified Application Specialist - SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition exam is this the equivalent certification for the Public edition ?

Also I noticed that the learning journey for the SAP Certified Application Specialist - SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition included download in PDF of the course and several recorded sessions by kate I am not seeing anything like that for this course just live sessions but they are some time away.

Is all the mat rail just in the online course ?

Thanks

Nick

Hello m_sarosh,

You should have received a mail from SAP with this subject "Action Required: Important update on your SAP S/4HANA Cloud certification". Pls. check your inbox.

In parallel you can access the "Assessment: SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition: stay current for Sourcing and Procurement" via SAP Learning Hub --> Stay Current --> Enterprise Management --> 2402 for Sourcing and Procurement --> Select.

Hello,

I completed the onboarding for this course

https://learning.sap.com/learning-journey/onboard-with-sap-activate-for-sap-s-4hana-cloud-public-edi...

The exam associated with it was C_TS4C_2023 and I have been preparing for this exam for the past 2 months. Now I am unable to find this exam nor the onboarding course I took.

The exam has been changed to C_S4CPB_2402

Anyone know how to find the previous exam?

Hello SAMJURI,

For HCM related enablement I would recommend this area on our learning platform: https://learning.sap.com/products/human-capital-management

But if you interested in SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition - of course you can take any of the Public Edition Learning Journeys and certifications.

Best regards, Dieter

Hello m_sarosh,

You find a lot of useful FAQs here: https://learning.sap.com/staying-certified

In particular this part is relevant for you:
How is SAP Certification changing? ....
3. Stay Certified (NEW) – Keep your skills sharp and certifications valid by completing regular mandatory assessments. Learners require an SAP Learning Hub subscription to maintain their certification status and access the latest self-paced and guided enablement content, live webinars, scenarios-based assessment exams, and more. Once you pass, your certification validity will be extended by 12 months from the assessment completion date.

Best regards, Dieter
