Five SAP Cloud Certifications in 10 Days: New Year’s Resolution Challenge
“This year, I’m going to learn something new. It’ll be fun, and I know I can do it.” That’s the thought I hope will run through your mind when you see the task before you.
Small and large businesses alike are adopting cloud computing. Some of you who aspire to become entrepreneurs are thinking about seizing this opportunity. But how do you get started? A developer or consultant might begin by earning appropriate certifications. Let’s start the new year by obtaining five cloud certifications in the next ten days. SAP will cover the preparation. Are you up for our New Year’s Resolution Challenge?
Are you ready to earn the latest cloud certifications?
SAP recently released new certifications for the Extension Suite, Integration Suite, and SAP HANA Cloud. As a developer or consultant, certifications focus on theoretical knowledge and help you show your interest and understanding. A solid understanding of these areas will prepare you for SAP’s Business Technology Platform.
Which sequence will we follow?
- First, we will look at the SAP Certified Development Associate – SAP Extension Suite (C_CPE_13). Understanding the Extension Suite will give you a solid foundation of SAP Business Technology Platform and SAP Cloud Application Programming Model.
- Your next step is to earn the SAP Certified Development Associate – SAP HANA Cloud 1.0 (C_HCDEV_01) certification, where you will show your knowledge of development with SAP CAP and SAP HANA Cloud. In this certification, you can build on the knowledge you gained before preparing for C_CPE_13.
- Your following certifications, SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP HANA Cloud Modeling (C_HCMOD_01) and SAP Certified Technology Associate – SAP HANA Cloud Provisioning and Administration (C_HCADM_01), will focus on the modeling and administering SAP HANA Cloud. You will build your knowledge of SAP HANA Cloud offerings with each subsequent certification.
- SAP Certified Development Associate – SAP Integration Suite (C_CPI_14) is the fifth and last certification you will pursue.
Having all five SAP Business Technology Platform certifications as a consultant or developer will give you a complete foundational picture of the platform. By following this order, you will build up further knowledge progressively on a broader foundation with each certification. Suppose you need two attempts to complete a certificate. In that case, you still have a chance to meet all the proposed certifications, or if you need a second pass twice, you still have a well-rounded set of certificates for development.
What you need to take on this challenge
SAP currently offers a new type of Learning Journey for free. It includes everything you need to prepare. The price of on-site training would be up to 2175 euros per training, while the cost of reading the material in the SAP Learning Hub would be less. So let’s take advantage of SAP’s current offer and utilize the free Learning Journeys.

While SAP offers Learning Journeys for free, certification attempts are not. Today, most people opt to buy, for example, six attempts for the SAP Global Certification Online exam rather than visit an SAP center on-site. These online exams cost 500 euros per 6 attempts in Germany. If your employer is willing to cover these costs, take advantage of your workplace’s education budget.
Time is as important as money in completing this challenge. There is a tendency for people to delay their certification attempts because they feel unprepared. You may feel better knowing you achieved way above the cut score, but much more time will only yield marginal gains. Two outcomes are possible. Either you fail or you pass. There is no middle ground. Our experience suggests that you should prepare for each certification for at least one and a half days. We challenge you to earn five cloud certifications within ten days.
