Tableau Certifications and Badges and Trainings
One way to prove to yourself and others that you know Tableau is through certification and badges. Tableau has 3 levels of desktop certification. (There are also server certifications).
|Exam Title||Exam Price||Prereq||Expiration|
|Associate (Desktop)||$250||None||2 Years|
I’ve been using Tableau for several years now. So I’ve been considering either the Professional or Associate Exam. The professional exam requires the Associate exam. So I would need to start with the Associate exam.
Tableau has a Prep Guide about all the topics one should know before completing the exam. I tried the e-learning Tableau offers when it was free a few month’s ago. It’s now offered for $120 for a full year subscription. I didn’t see an option to speed up the videos. They also offer bootcamps currently for $3,500. One wouldn’t be able to speed up a live class either, but I’d expect it to be more interactive. With the e-learning you can also earn badges for Linkedin and social media.
The least expensive option is the e-learning as the badges are included. It would be a way of showing Tableau knowledge too.
Another training option is the free learning videos
Broken down into Creator, Explorer, Viewer, and Admin. There isn’t any credential but is a credential necessary?
Current goal is to complete the Creator videos before end of October. I suspect some of it will be a review, and some of it new. I will post progress and some of my favorite lessons.
