    Two questions reached me, therefore let me add some info on the process hot to take a certification.

    How to take a certification that you chose?

    Each certification has a description which clearly describes the expectations that you need to fulfill to pass the exam. The basis of a certification is usually a list of courses, as listed above and as described in our learning journeys.

    The courses include theoretical knowledge and exercises. You have to understand and digest the theoretical part, but we also strongly recommend to do the exercises.

    Alternative ways to learn the content:

    1. Self-paced

      If you want to learn self-paced, part-time (in parallel to your job) and on your own, you should consume our eLearning offerings.
      For Finance, all certification related courses are available as an eLearning. An eLearning is the recording of the classroom training. Exercises are shown through recorded system demos.

      • eLearnings + Liveaccess
        If you have a subscription to SAP Learning Hub (professional edition or solution edition for Finance), this would be your most natural way to get ready for the certification: Please logon to SAP Learning Hub and access our learning journeys for SAP S/4HANA Finance. Start the eLearnings from there and have a look at the course materials. (Your access to these materials is given with your SAP Learning Hub subscription.) If you want to do the exercises, you should in addition rent a Live Access system for each course (separate booking / price).  Questions on the course content can be clarified through our Learning Room.
      • eAcademy
        For Financial Accounting (TS4F2E) and Management Accounting (TS4F4E) we offer eAcademies. Booking an eAcademy will provide you with the eLearnings, course materials (same as included in a SAP Learning Hub subscription) and also with a training system that you can use remotely for a couple of months. Questions can be clarified through experts (details will be provided during and after the booking procedure). We do not offer an eAcademy for our professional certification.
      • The certification has to be booked separately, through http://training.sap.com . A learner buys a contingent of up to 6 exams that can be used within one year. You can use these 6 items for several attemts on different certifications. The exams are taken online, as “certification in the cloud”. Details are given in the descriptions of the certifications.
    2. Classroom

      If you want to learn fulltime and in a classroom with other learners, then please check the local training offerings for our classroom academies and courses. You will find the relevant links to the SAP Training Shop (to book classroom trainings) included in our through our learning journeys on http://help.sap.com . Please check if the certification is included in the classroom academy. Otherwise you need to book it separately and take it as “certification in the cloud”. Please check the exact description of the local event.

      • For Financial Accounting: academies TS4F01 and TS4F02
      • For Management Accounting: academies TS4F03 and TS4F04
      • For Upskilling Financial and Management Accounting to SAP S/4HANA: S4F01, S4F02, S4F03

    If you are already familiar with some parts of the academies but need to add knowledge on other parts, then please consider to add just the missing parts by attending the single courses (as classroom or eLearning) and repeat your existing knowledge from courses that you already took in the past.

    Please let me know if any questions are still open.
