Introduction

Interested in a career as SAP HANA technology consultant?

In this blog, I will provide the information you need to help you prepare for the SAP Certified Technology Associate – SAP HANA 2.0 certification exam, C_HANATEC_13.

This exam verifies that you have the required knowledge to install SAP HANA in a tailored data center (TDI) environment.

About the Certification

Currently, there are two versions of the SAP HANA technology associate certification:

  • C_HANATEC_13 – SAP Certified Technology Associate – SAP HANA 2.0
  • C_HANATEC_12 – SAP Certified Technology Associate – SAP HANA (Edition 2016)

Both have 80 questions, but the cut score has gone up a bit from 60 to 65% for the latest edition, so you now need to answer 52 questions correctly (up from 48).

The certification version number used to follow the SAP HANA SPS release, e.g. TEC_12 = SPS 12, but as SPS 13 entered the market as SAP HANA 2.0, this is no longer the case.

As a rule, SAP certifications are valid for a limited time period, see the FAQ.

For a list of valid certifications, see https://training.sap.com/shop/certification/validity.

You can check the validity of your exam in the SAP Credentials Manager.

At the time of writing, the certification programs for SPS 10 and earlier have expired.

Sample Questions

SAP Education provides a number of sample questions for each exam (10 for C_HANATEC_13) with answers to help you assess your readiness for the exam. However, there is no explanation why certain answers are correct and others incorrect.

For this reason, I have posted a separate blog where I explain the answers to the questions with some exam training suggestions and references:

Topic Areas

The topic areas have changed slightly comparing TEC12 (left) with TEC13 (right) although most categories still have an 8%-12% weight (6-10 questions).

New in the exam is the topic Multitenant Database Containers (MDC) and Operations of SAP HANA has now been renamed to Database Administration Tools and Tasks.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting, which counted for about a quarter of the weight for TEC12, now has been consolidated into a single topic area and the High Availability & Disaster Tolerance topic has received a few more questions.

Topic Areas: TEC_12 (left) and TEC_13 (right)

Resources

For the exam, the same SAP Education training resources are listed, based on the SAP HANA 2.0 SPS00 release:

You might need to include the prerequisite for HA200 as well:

Training participation is not a requirement. However, because of the direct relation of the exam with the training, participation is certainly recommended. If you can only attend one training, make it HA200.

Additional resources as preparation for the exam are publicly available (at no charge) on the SAP HANA Platform section on the SAP Help Portal. See the deep-dive blogs for references.

SAP HANA Academy

To help you prepare for the exam, we have created a dedicated playlist which contains all the videos relevant for the exam.

On the deep-dives for the topic areas, the videos are embedded with references to documentation or blogs.
