Register for an Exam
The SAS Global Certification program offers SAS users around the world the opportunity to put their SAS expertise to the test.
Visit Pearson VUE to register online. Candidates may not register directly at a Pearson VUE testing facility. A minimum of 24 hours is required for registration for returning candidates.
First-time candidates require additional time.
. Follow these easy steps once on the site:
- Attention first-time users:
You must "create" a new Web account within Pearson VUE before you can schedule a SAS exam. This can take up to two business days based on information provided to produce your username and
password needed for exam registration. You will not have a SAS Candidate ID until after you have scheduled a SAS exam. It will be automatically assigned to you and sent via email.
- Returning users:
If you have previously taken a SAS exam with Pearson VUE and created a Web account, you can use the "Sign In" to register for an exam. If you do not remember your sign-in information, there
are links within Pearson VUE to help obtain this information.
If you need assistance with registration, look for "Need Help? Contact customer service" located within the Pearson VUE registration page that will provide a listing of local numbers where
support is available.
Locations for testing can be found at www.pearsonvue.com/sas
under "Find a test location." During registration, you will chose a
location to take your exam.
SAS offers monthly exam sessions in Cary, NC and at some US conferences. For a SAS-sponsored US exam session, visit
SAS-sponsored Testing Events in the US
. For SAS-sponsored testing outside the US, please contact your
local SAS office.
Within North America and India, the fees associated with an exam offered through Pearson VUE is $180 USD.
Certification exam prices are subject to change. In some countries, different pricing and additional taxes may apply. Please visit www.pearsonvue.com/sas
for exam pricing in your country.
- To cancel or reschedule your test appointment, visit www.pearsonvue.com/sas and select 'Cancel a Test' or 'Reschedule a Test.'
Tests must be canceled more than 24 hours before the scheduled exam appointment time. Canceling with less than 24 hours' notice will forfeit your exam fee.
- Customers who do not appear for a scheduled exam forfeit the full exam fee. If the exam fee was paid with a voucher, the voucher number will be invalidated and unavailable for future use.
Candidates may attempt each certification exam up to five times in a 12-month period, waiting a minimum of 14 days between attempts. Exam charges are incurred for each exam attempt. Exams that
do not comply with this retake policy will be considered invalid and will not be eligible for refund and/or a certification credential. Once a passing score is achieved on a specific exam, no
further attempts are allowed on that exam.
Candidates are encouraged to review the SAS Institute Inc. Global Certification Program Candidate Agreement
prior to their exam day.
