SAP Global Certification is rolling out SAP Credential Manager

SAP Credential Manager hosted by Pearson is a hosted solution that is provided by SAP Education as a free service to the SAP certified community. Since its launch in October 2013, over 4,000 SAP certified professionals are using SAP Credential Manager and the feedback from users is very positive. Building on that success, SAP Global Certification Team is excited to rollout SAP Credential Manager globally by mid-2014.


SAP Education now offers access to SAP Credential Manager as an additional benefit for those going that extra mile and getting SAP certified. It also offers customers and partners various options for validating credentials and searching for certified resources to drive the success of their projects. A customer survey in 2013 showed that it is important for 70% of customers to verify the certification of job applicants or consultants and 80% of customers would like to be able to search for certified consultants in a public registry.


Certified individuals get privileged access to SAP Credential Manager and on certifying they receive an e-mail to consent to include their information in SAP Credential Manager.  Once logged into SAP Credential Manager, certified individuals can:


  • Manage and track their valid certifications
  • Publish their certified status to specific customers, managers or employers
  • Download the SAP Certified logo
  • Stay informed about certification expiration dates and updates about certification exams
  • Get privileged access to benefits and knowledge sharing


Certified SAP consultants looking for opportunities can also elect to include contact details in the SAP Consultant Registry which is the public component of SAP Credential Manager.  The SAP Consultant Registry is a database of certified SAP consultants that customers, project managers and potential employers can use to find the best SAP certified individual for a project.  Certified SAP consultants who include their information in the registry can eliminate the need to send paper certificates to interested parties.


SAP Credential Manager can be accessed from the SAP Training and Certification web shop:

What’s Next?
SAP Credential Manager is currently available to the certified community in the ANZ, NA and UKI regions.  SAP Global Certification will publish launch cycles as other regions are added to the service. As a region comes online, members of the certified community will receive an email to give their consent to include their data in SAP Credential Manager. Once the data is loaded, the member is invited to join the SAP Credential Manager portal. If a member has earned certificates with different S-User IDs, accounts will be merged.

  • Sheri,

    What do we do if there is no category for the area we specialise in? We specialise in the implementation of SAP Strategy Management but that is not listed.

    • Hi Colin

      I hope I understood your question correctly. Are you concerned that there are no SAP certifications that would be relevant for you and your company as SAP Strategy Managers? We have around 160 certification areas which you can find here SAP Training and Certification Shop

      Are you sure there is nothing there?

      Please let me know if I misunderstood the questions.



      • Sue,

        I have looked through every single one of the roles and there is no certification for SAP Strategy Management in any of the roles.



  • Dear All,

    I have 3 SAP Certifications and I never got an email for SAP Credential Managers.

    All of my certification are from new products like SAP Business Objects 4.0  "C_BOBIP_40".

    I was refered to this addresss 

    I sent them an email asking them to let me know how to login and I have not heard back from them.  I even sent them my certification on PDF.

    Does anyone know how I can contact them please.

    I appreciate it.

  • Hi,

    I recently got a mail from Credential manager with following content :-

    Your Account has been changed for the following Certificate:    

    C_TAW12_70 Development Associate - ABAP with SAP NetWeaver 7.0

    •     Candidate Name: Vinod Kumar.T
    •     Retired
    •     You are Certified since: 10/26/2012
    •     Status change Date:  07/20/2015
    • Expiration Date:07/20/2015
    • UserID: sxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    What does this mean? Does this mean that my certification is no more valid ?


    Vinod Kumar

    • Hello Vinod,

      SAP launched a Retirement Strategy in 2013. This was announced here on SCN in 2013.

      There is also a posted Text on the SAP Credential Manager HomePage after you are logged in - since the beginning. On the "My Certificates" Page there is a second Text explaining that we expire and retire Exams (Certifications).

      SAP has launched C_TAW12_71; C_TAW12_731 and C_TAW12_740 in the meantime.

      This does not mean that you can't work on a 7.0 Installation. We recommend to re-certify in a newer Release.

      Kind regards,

      please, check here if your Certificate is still valid (List of Valid Exams). If it is not valid it may be not listed or has an expiration / retirement status Date.

  • Hello,

    I was certified at Successfactors Employee Central, but never got my certification, since my account at Certification Manager does not work, when I login, it raises error (even after I reset my password and enter authorization key). Who should I contact to have it fixed?

    Thank you!
