Cloud Engineer Certification Program Overview

Exam experience

Certification exams are taken online with a live proctor. This means that all locations and time zones are accommodated. Online proctoring provides the same benefits of a physical test center while being more accessible to exam-takers. The live proctor verifies the exam-taker’s identity, walks them through rules and procedures, and watches them take the exam. Be sure to follow the instructions on your exam appointment confirmation email about how to prepare your computer and physical environment to take the exam.

Your credential

HashiCorp has partnered with Credly’s platform to offer you a digital badge upon passing a certification exam. There is no fee for this service and acceptance is up to you. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Badges link back to a real-time verification feature that describes your qualifications.

Certification levels

The HashiCorp Cloud Engineer Certification program offers certifications at two different levels. Associate-level exams verify a Cloud Engineers basic skills in the corresponding HashiCorp Product through multiple choice-based exams, while Professional-level exams verify more specialized skills through lab-based exams. Currently, we have Associate-level exams for Terraform, Vault, and Consul. We offer a Professional-level certification for Vault.

Renewing your certification

All HashiCorp Certifications are valid for two years, and you will be eligible to renew your certification starting 18 months after you earned your certification. To recertify, you will need to pass an exam at the same level or higher for the certification you are looking to renew. There are several pathways to recertification available, and you can learn more on our Knowledge Base or by heading to each exam’s homepage.
