SAP Certification is divided into three levels based on your experience and depth of the knowledge.
SAP Tiered Certification

This certification covers the foundational-level knowledge in an SAP solution. At this level the exam is based mainly on training, but hands-on experience reinforces the knowledge gained from training.
Professional certification ( 3-7 years of experience )
This advanced certification requires proven project experience, business process knowledge, and a more detailed understanding of SAP solutions.
Master certification (under development) ( 7-10 years of experience)
This certification, under development, involves demonstrating an expert-level understanding of a specific area of SAP software and the ability to drive innovation and solution optimization through in-depth knowledge and vision. Certification at this level requires broad project experience, comprehensive
SAP product knowledge, and the ability to create a future IT vision within complex project environments.
SAP CERTIFICATION EXAM STRUCTURE

Articulate, explain, describe, and outline solutions and processes.
  • Level B
