Certifications taken through PearsonVUE

Hi guys,

I have a question that's been bothering me for quite some time.

I took 3 SAP certification exams through PearsonVUE, for ABAP, Basis and PI. I passed them all. After I got out from the test room, I received a printed sheet with my score for each category and the certification. Since then, I sent quite some e-mails to SAP and VUE asking them when will my plastified certification be in my possesion. I received very late responses from both(from SAP, after 2 months since my e-mail!!!!), telling me that I should contact the other company for the certification & stuff.

Now, after 8 months from my first certification, I'm still wondering if I will ever receive anything else than those papers and if I'll be able to prove that I'm certified when one of the clients will not believe me.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Best regards,

George

Can anyone from SAP please answer this? Because all the e-mails that I send to SAP get redirected to a clerk in Romania who ignores me or replies after 2 months telling me I should contact VUE. However,I believe this is not a VUE related issue and this is what PearsonVUE says as well.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I heared from some of my colleagues who passed through PearsonVUE, they said they received the certificate in soft copy. That copy needs to be printed on our own in a good quality paper or photo paper.

You can at least ask them for soft copy of the same (this looks same like your SAP certificate).

All the best,

Try to contact him if he can help anything. I do not have his email address, but if you search you may find.

I would like to ask one question, why you have taken exam at PEARSONVUE, do you get any kind of discount on this. More or less everybody who has appeared from this Institute are having deadly time in getting their certificates. It seems SAP is really careless in their approach in dealing with the problems of these people. There are number of occasions people have complained within this forum. But, no concrete action from either SAP or PEARSONVUE.

By seeing all the painful and pathetic stories, I would never attend the Certification Exam through PearsonVUE, even if they offer me write the exam on FREE of cost. I do not want to waste my valuable time

Ravi -- let me provide some clarity regarding your comments:

1.  Pearson VUE is not an "institure" in the classic definition.   It is considered a valued partner for the delivery of SAP certification exams in many countries -- especially here in North America.    Without VUE, we would not have been able to reach as many people who have used their delivery centers over the past 3+ years.

2.  Regarding the discounts through Pearson VUE (in North America) -- we did offer discount promotions at VUE for the past several years.  These discounts were NOT extended into 2012.

3.  Pearson VUE (at least in North America) do NOT deliver the final hard-copy certificates to the test takers.  What they do provide is a score report before each person leaves the center that shows their final score as well as their section scores.    The final certificates come from SAP Education typically 4-6 weeks following the successful exam.   Many times, the problems with delivery result from incorrect address information provided to Pearson VUE at the time of registration as this is passed back to SAP Education for the mailing of the final certificate.   If you have questions about your certificate, contact our North America Customer Interaction Center at education.northamerica@sap.com.   Be prepared to provide your S-userid and VUE registration information. 

Thanks,

Ken

Thanks Ken for your comments and clarification.

Hopefully, the email address provided by your should help many of our participants. I never had any issue when I written my exam at SAP or SAP Education Partner. Every time, I used to get my certificates within 4 - 6 weeks of time frame. So far, whenever I read in this forum, everybody given their complaints who have appeared through Pearson VUE. Number of people raised the same kind of problems. There could a case of one or two, who has written wrong mailing address. But, it cannot be the case with number of candidates. There is also allegation from the candidates that when they contacted SAP or Pearson VUE (for their Certificates), they are getting very late responses / not even any responses. It would be really frustrating for them to follow up SAP in this manner, even after passing SAP Certification. It seems there is some communication gap between the whole process. Hope you will give your valuable insight into this issue.

This shows complete lapse on the part of SAP Education. It seems SAP has taken much interest in partnering with Pearson VUE to enrol number of participants for the SAP Certification, however, lacks the same commitment in delivering their SAP Certificates. If SAP cannot deliver it, please do not commit. It is as simple as that. Nobody is bothered about the Score Report. I am still wondering whether SAP is able to distinguish between the score report and original certificate. People are investing the money for the Certificate not for the score report. If SAP cannot deliver their commitments effectively, then SAP should reconsider their partnership with Pearson VUE, otherwise their reputation would be in question in the long run.

Many Thanks,

Ravi

Hi Ravi,

I am also one of the victims who took the exam through Pearsonvue, I passed the exam 8 weeks ago in Saudi Arabia ( jeddah ) exactly on 25.03.2012, I also provided 100 % correct address, I contacted SAP MENA on Tuesday last week, they promised to send me the certificate last week and email me the tracking number as soon as they are sent, but never happened, I contacted them yesterday again and emailed them the examination score report and the confirmation email received from Pearsonvue after the registration. I hope something will finally happen in this regard.

I am really frustrated and disappointed after investing a hell of money for training and certification without any tangible evidence.

Will I ever receive my certificate this year ?

Usually a certificate will take 4 to 6 weeks of times, sometimes, may be little bit late.

PS: For me it looks the problem is not with the wrong address, but with the process itself. The problem is lack of accountability.

Hi Ravi, thank you for your reply,

"Lack of accountability" I fully agree with you. Now I have received a response from SAP MENA that I have to contact Pearson Vue directly as they are the ones who has conducted the certification ?

I believe there is no coordination between SAP and Person vue, all what they are interested in is to get the money out of your pocket, nothing else. What a poor customer service ?

I thought that the certificates comes from SAP Education and everything is recorded in their system.

any one from SAP who can help?

Hi Chris,

You please need to contact your local SAP Education Team. Once you paid the certification amount to them, they would be able to create the S ID and give you a voucher code. You may have to pass the evaluation (if any) in that country with SAP.

Then you can use that voucher code on Pearson VUE site and register for the examination.

HI All,

I have recently joined the SCN network (and very glad that I did) and would like to share some concerns about my SAP certification scenario.

I am from Pakistan and currently undertaking the SAP Materials Management Module Training. I have conducted extensive research on ERP implementations and SAP in my Masters thesis so have in-depth knowledge and currently I am working on my first practical experience with SAP.

I am currently taking instructor led training from a local institution in my country, plus the manuals, and since I am considerably novel in the practical field of SAP i plan to take the C_TSCM52_65 SAP Certified Application Associate - Procurement with SAP ERP 6.0 EHP5 certification.

I have few concerns about how i will be taking the certification test. I was informed by my instructor that I can take the certification test through SAP MENA in dubai, it will be a fairly easy and simple process with no hassles and prerequisites, but after reading the horrible experiences of people in this thread I am now absolutely terrified about how my experience will go when I take the certification!

Please guide me as to what are my options in taking the certification tests, as currently in my own currently (Pakistan), i am unable to find the test schedules that I need (i am working hard and want to give the test sometime in september).

Can I take the test through SAP MENA in Dubai or Abu Dhabi directly or will I have to go to pearson as well?.. Also how can I register directly with the SAP Education centre.

I really wish to give the test soon as possible and certainly cannot afford to wait for a long time like months for the original certificate to come

Please guide me, I am willing to travel to another country like Dubai, Malaysia Thailand or Singapore as long as I can register with SAP Education directly and get the original certificate quickly!

Hi Anas,

If you have written correct address, you should receive the certificate. It does not really matter whether you write at SAP or Pearson.

Before applying for certification, please contact the local SAP Education. You may need to fulfil their evaluation process.

Usually you should receive your certificate in 4 to 8 weeks time.

Hi Experts,

I have decided to go for SAP BOBJ certification. But initially I want to gain knowledge in SAP BOBJ before entering into sap certification. So according to you is there any expert who can guide me in this regard? I heard that sap BW 7.3 with BO 4.0 has good demand in the market recently. Is it true? Is there any website or book that will help me regarding it. Even if there is any technical person who can help me either in person or through internet to get knowledge in SAP BOBJ then it would be of great help to me. Also please inform me some good training institutes from where I can start my SAP BOBJ training.

Waiting for your valuable reply.

Dear all,

we have been inundated with requests recently for supposedly lost certificates - most of the e-mails referring to this blog. In the interest of my team having a healthy-sized inbox  it would be enormously helpful if you could take note of the following guidelines:

a) Please be extremely diligent in entering the address YOU want the certificate to be sent to when registering for the exam. We should not be sending certificates to training centers, hotel rooms or postal boxes as this is just increasing the chances of it going wrong. It should only be your home or company address.

b) Please be patient. The certificates normally take between 4 and 6 weeks to be delivered - especially to Indian addresses. There is little added value in writing to us two weeks after taking the exam as is the case in many of the requests.

Thanks for your understanding

Hi Sayan,

Good to know about you.

I know SAP jobs offer good salaries across the globe. Many people are intending to move into SAP because of lucrative offers. However, at the same time, it should not be the only driving factor. My personal suggestion is let the CTC put it aside while you are planning to learn SAP. It is your passion ultimately which matters. If you put your passion into SAP, money and fame would come automatically.

I definitely understand getting into Statistical Institute is not an easy task and I do believe you have enough stuff and a grasp learner. Though ABAP would be a good starting point, I would suggest you also look into BI / BOBJ / HANA areas.

All the best.

Hello Ravi,

First of all thanks for your valuable information. I want to know that whether I am eligible for SAP BI / BOBJ / HANA areas ?? I have gain 2yrs of experience as a developer. But since Sap BOBJ/BI need knowledge in Databases, at this point of time I dont have any industrial experience in Database. So should I go for SAP BI/BOBJ or ABAP ? I want to become SAP certified from reputed institutes like ATOS,GENOVATE etc. So according to you which course is suitable for me to get a job in India after become SAP certified?

Thanks and Regards

Hi Sayan,

Nobody can give any guarantee whether you get any job after any certification. It purely based on the demand / supply and how you perform in the interview. If you have some database knowledge that would be good, otherwise also, it is not that difficult as you are already from the computer background.

Since there are so many consultants in ABAP, you may have to compete with them.

The future of SAP is around analytic applications such as BOBJ / HANA. Therefore, you can keenly look into these areas.

If you see the Congratulations message you are surely passed. You are going to get the hard copy of the certificate in 6 to 8 weeks.

I passed on Nov 13th and informed SAP MENA and i received my certificate on Nov 26th, with in 13 days i received my Certificate . .I believe most cases here mentioned about certification delay because of wrong Mailing address..In my experience SAP Support Team  they are truely professional.I really want to take this opportunity to thank SAP Mena Team, especially one of SAP Mena Employee Ms.Rosarie Mercado who helped me a lot ,

Hi All,

one more thing, that i want to bring to your kind notice is we dont get to give all certifications via pearson vue india centers as it shows no price in front of them say for ex: HANA or any new certification.... strange thing is you dont even see dates for India on offical SAP certification site !!! 

Not sure whats the reason behind all this,i belive we should be given chance to give all SAP offered certification either from SAP edu center or partner testing centers across globe.

What i have also heard is espically in india you need to justify your experience or give explanations of your CV before taking exam(esp in new technologies) say at pearson vue if you dont opt for offical sap training. i have even dropped mail to education-india sap as well.. no response yet.

dont you think we should have all these eligibilty criterias in diff certis listed beforehand for(not sure why rules are diff  first of all) respective country sites, it will save start time and money ... As i have wasted weeks just getting right info at one place

After watching this thread I wanted to share my experience as people seems to be confused
to take certification exams at pearsonVUE even it is convenient.

Coming to my case, I completed my certification on 12/26/11 at pearsonVUE test center (Richmond,VA) then due to personal reasons I had to go my country
so, before leaving US I updated my India address with pearsonVUE and I got my certificate on 01/26/12 to India (from SAP) which is approx 4 weeks.

I do agree that, there would be few cases where the certificates are delayed due to some reasons and I really appreciate
Ravi, Sue, Kenneth in helping them to get their certificates.

My intention of replying this thread is, if I had seen this thread before registering with pearsonVUE I would not have not gone there. My friends and myself took the test at pearsonVUE centers and all of us got the certificates within 4 to 6 weeks.

I would like guys who got their certificates, too share their experience so that others planning to get the certification can utilize the pearsonVUE centers instead of postpone/dropping due to distant SAP centers.

Lastly, we have Sue,Kenneth and their team to assist if we have any issues

All the best!!!

Thank you so much Nawaz!! It is great to see people like you who have a positive experience sharing this as well

It is important that folks share the fact that they are having problems getting their certificates but as you rightly point out this is definitely not the general case. We did have some issues a couple of years ago when integrating new certification programs which still had old addresses at PV and I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for people to keep their address data up to date. That doesn't solve all the problems of course but it certainly helps in most cases.

We have also addressed this by changing our delivery method to India  - which seems to have the most issues -  and the situation has improved significantly in the last two years. At last count we had less than 2% returns on certificates.

Nevertheless we are taking further steps to get that down to zero. We are introducing a platform in the next couple of months which automatically generates an e-mail to folks who have passed their certification exam reminding them to go back and check their delivery address before the certificate is sent. I am confident that this will help us to reduce this problem to almost zero - which will be a great relief to all.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Biju,

Pearson VUE is just a partner helps in conducting the certification. But, the complete control is with SAP. Meaning that whether you appear at SAP or Pearson VUE, they both are one and the same.

Pearson VUE cannot conduct the exam or set the questions on their own.

You can go and attend at Pearson VUE.

Hi Harish

we have investigated your case with the colleagues in India and Global and your certificate has already been sent twice to the address you gave and been returned both times. I see you have contacted my colleague Iwona directly and we are hopeful that the certificate will reach you this time.

Best regards

Sue

Hi Susan,

Thanks for the response and what happens in India is in address (DOOR NO) is must and should .

With out door no it is difficult to delivery the parcel in my case i have provided the correct address. I don't now why in my case it went back twice i guess door no in my address is missing so it has returned back .Any way  i have  provided the correct address to Iwona

and i hope this time i will get my original certificate ,Is there any chance that before sending certificate  this time please confirm address from me electronically so that i can suggest you if any changes in address or any data missing .

Thanks,

Hi,

My mame is Laurentiu Gavrila . I passed SAP certification exam “C_TFIN52_64: SAP Certified Application Associate - Financial Accounting with SAP ERP 6.0 EHP4 “ through Person Vue authorized testing center “ Provison “ in Bucharest , Romania  on 12-OCT-2012.

I got the detailed score report with final result as pass.

Hello Laurentiu

Congratulations on your success.   Typically, the hard-copy certificates take between 4-6 weeks for delivery.   You can contact your local SAP Education Customer Support team if you don't see the certificate by mid-December.

Hello Ravi Sir,

I was reading the discussions going on about the PearsonVUE centres and all the issues with people not getting their certificates for months (or years as in one brother's case!). I recently contacted SAP MENA and unfortunately they too have given me the same response that they are not conducting any certifications this year but they can give me a Pearson VUE voucher to take the test in dubai. After all the discussions here and everybody's issues, I am seriously not willing to undergo the same torture of and simply cannot afford to wait for many months before my certification comes. I am in a very critical situation right now and would want to receive my certificate asap after I give the test (a lot of my life decisions are depending on this certificate).

Please sir guide me, what should I do? Should I take the test in dubai through pearson? I am seriously reluctant. Is there any alternative for me to take the test someplace else where I can get the certificate quickly? For example can I take the test in Malaysia or Singapore? Is it better over there in terms of getting the certificate quickly?

Would really appreciate your response and help sir. Thanks in advance.

Hi Anas,

Recently, I have written an exam at one of the Pearson Center in UK and received the Certificate in 3 weeks time. I sincerely hope you should receive it. There might be some exceptional cases happened. Otherwise, you should receive it in time.

Regarding Malaysia or Singapore, they will evaluate your CV and then decide whether you can write your exam there or not. Therefore, if you are considering these countries, first of all you need to contact them.

Kind Regards,

Ravi

Thanks a lot for the response and advice sir. I guess then I have no option but to give the test through the Pearson VUE centre and then make sure that I have given the correct address and hope for the best. Would you happen to know an approximate time they take in delivering certificates to Pakistan?

Also regarding what you said about the evaluation process, what is the process for evaluation in the case of Malaysia or singapore?. Will I have to go through the evaluation with SAP MENA too? as currently the email from SAP MENA said that there is no pre requisite to take the associate certification, just the payment of fees to get the voucher.

Waiting for your response. Many thanks.

Anas

Hi Anas,

Usually, it should take 4 to 8 weeks time to deliver your SAP Certificate.

I am not sure about the current evaluation process in Malaysia / Singapore. Some years back they have taken my CV and based that they approved me to write the exam in Malaysia.

If SAP MENA says, you can write without further evaluation, then it would be good, you can take up the exam directly.

All the best.

Kind Regards,

Ravi

Thanks a lot Ravi for your response and advice. Yes I was thinking of the same think most probably will have to go with SAP MENA Pearson VUE. I hope that it will go ok and pray that nothing bad will happne. Also When you took the exam from Malaysia, how long did it take them to deliver your certificate to you?

Thanks and Regards,

Anas

Hi Anas,

I do not remember exactly, but it was delivered well within the time. I believe it must be around 4 weeks.

Hi George and Ravi,

Pearson VUE does not print certificates for SAP and has not done so for several years now so I am really sorry but you have been given wrong information. You should receive your certificate within 6 weeks of taking your exam  - whether at SAP or at Pearson VUE. Some certificates get returned but there are usually address issues involved. If that is the case you should then report that to your local Education office which passes it on to the Global team to follow up with the fulfillment house and have it resent. We will ensure that the Education regions get a  reminder of the process today and are following up on your issues so you will hear from us promptly.

Best regards

Sue

Hi Sue,

I never said in any of my replies that Pearson VUE is going to print the Certificate. I know clearly that they are not authorised to print the Certificates, except Score Report. Only SAP is able to issue the report. I have not appeared any exam through Pearson VUE or not going to appear any SAP Certification Examination through them in the future. If at all, I want to appear an SAP Certification, I would only contact SAP Education directly. The person who is struggling to get his certificate is Mr. Mohammed Farhan. He has reported in this thread that he has contact number of time both Pearson VUE and SAP Education Team. He has also confirmed that his address is correct.

Thanks and Regards,

Ravi

PS: Mohammed Farhan - Can you please follow the advice from Sue and update the thread accordingly.

I am in New Jersey and the nearest SAP exam center is in Philadelphia . Have to travel quite a bit to give the exam which I want to avoid.

Looking at the feedback of candidates who have given their certification exam through PearsonVue on certificate delays, I am very confused whether I should opt for Pearson Vue or travel to Philadelphia.
