If you are an SAP Business One partner thinking about certification this year, be aware of the following changes coming soon:

  • The release 9.2 Application Associate (C_TB1200_92) certification will be withdrawn at the end of June 2019. Validity for sell authorization becomes at risk starting July 2020.


  • The Development Associate exam (C_TB1300_90) will be withdrawn at the end of June 2019. This certification is over 5 years old and SAP Business One training development is creating new, self-study training materials in this area. These materials will include the latest integration capabilities and APIs and will be published to the Learning Hub in June.


  • The release 9.3 Application Associate C_TB1200_93 certification is the most current, valid certification  for sell authorization.


These changes are in line with SAP’s overall strategy to protect the value of certifications. Certifications are replaced on a periodic basic to ensure that partner expertise is up-to-date with latest releases.

How will these changes affect you?
