How to Prepare

SAP Training and SAP Learning Hub

The C_CPI certification is entirely based on SAP training courses and although not formally listed as a requirement, it will be challenging to pass the exam without taking any classes (be it in classroom or e-learning format).

The topic areas are covered in the following courses

There is some (minor) overlap between the topic areas of the C_CPE_12 exam.

If classroom training brings you bad memories, consider a SAP Learning Hub subscription. There is a trial edition available for you to try it out.

Learning Journey

The learning journey shows a visualisation of the courses to take. You can logon and mark your progress.

The tiles for each of the courses show the available formats: classroom and e-books.

Note that although recommended, the CP100 and CLD900 courses are not required.

Besides a Certification Path journey, there is also a Learning Journey for the SAP Integration Suite itself, which references additional training options, like the free openSAP courses and the equally free developer tutorials (see below).

Sample Questions

On the exam page, there is a link to a sample exam similar to the real one (although referencing the previous edition for the application associate exam.

Coming up: a blog post where we will cover the sample questions in more detail.


Included with the learning journey and great place to start are the openSAP courses on the topic.

Although beyond the scope of the exam, you might find the currently running ISA-M course of interest


SAP Partner Enablement | SAP HANA Academy

As the main focus of the exam is on the Cloud Integration, the video tutorials from the SAP HANA Academy by tahirhussain.babar and jamie.wiseman on the topic are highly recommended.

In twelve short videos, you will learn how to set up a trial environment and how to create an integration flow, work with adapters, routing, and many other topics covered on the exam.

SAP Development Center

The hands-on tutorials from the SAP Development Center also provide a great learning opportunity.



Although there is no SAP PRESS Certification Success Guide on for the SAP Integration Suite (yet), there are two excellent books published by SAP PRESS to prepare for the exam

As integration developer you are expected to be familiar with the documentation but most of the material will be beyond the scope of the exam and in a format less suitable for study.
