Cloudera Certification

Can I review my test or specific test questions and answers?

Cloudera certification tests adhere to the industry standard for high-stakes certification tests, which includes the protection of all test content. As a certifying body, Cloudera does not provide exam items in any other format than a proctored environment.

What are the prerequisites for the Cloudera certification?

There are no prerequisites. Anyone can take a Cloudera Certification Test at any time.

What is the validity of the Cloudera certificat?

CCA certifications are valid for two years and CCP certifications are valid for three years. CCDH, CCAH, and CCSHB certifications align to a specific CDH release and remain valid for that version. Once that CDH version retires or the certification or exam retires, your certification retires.

What is Cloudera’s retake policy?

Candidates who fail an exam must wait a period of thirty days, beginning the day after the failed attempt, before they may retake the same exam. You may take the exam as many times as you want until you pass, however, each attempt will cost; Cloudera offers no discounts for retake exams. Retakes are not allowed after the successful completion of a test.

Does the exam proctor have access to my computer or its contents?

No. Innovative Exams does not install any software on your computer. The only access the Innovative Exams proctor has to your computer is the webcam and desktop sharing facilitated by your web browser.

Upon the completion of the exam, the proctor's "view-only access" is automatically removed.

What may I have at my desk during the exam?
