SEATTLE, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) today
announced it will offer official Product Certification for its Desktop and
Server products. Customers can achieve two levels of certification titles,
Qualified Associate and Certified Professional. This new Product Certification
Program will provide Tableau customers with more opportunities to help their
organizations, advance their careers, build their resumes and validate their
Tableau knowledge and skills. The Certification level for both products will
allow those that are highly skilled to stand out from the crowd.


Previously, Tableau offered product exams exclusively at its customer
conferences for its Desktop product. Today, exams are delivered via online
testing platforms.

"We are excited to offer an official Product Certification for our customers,
partners and consultants around the world," said Nigel Stoodley, Vice
President of Customer Solutions at Tableau Software. "Being Tableau certified
is a significant accomplishment and we're confident that these two levels of
certification will showcase the expertise and skills of those who thoroughly
understand our products."

Tableau customers were engaged in the beta testing of each exam. Their
guidance and feedback helped to ensure Tableau is offering credentials of the
highest quality.

"Tableau Server is powerful and richly functional. Mastering it with depth
takes time, experience, study and the willingness to dig in and explore its
workings," said Chris Gerrard a business intelligence consultant and the first
Tableau Server Certified Professional. "The Tableau Server Certification exam
is a good one. It's tough, long, comprehensive, and really exercises one's
technical knowledge and ability to think about how the product works."

The exams are hands-on and require use of the product to find solutions. Most
of the exams may be taken online at except for the Server
certification, which must be done in-person at a Tableau regional office and
can be arranged by emailing

Product Certification time requirements and prices are as follows:

  oDesktop Qualification – Two hour, online exam. $250 USD
  oDesktop Certification - Three hour, online exam. $400 USD
  oServer Qualification - One hour, online exam. $250 USD
  oServer Certification - Six hour, in-person exam. $600 USD

Tableau Product Certification is currently available in English but the
company expects to add more languages in the future.
