4 Month Wait For Data Analyst Certification Results
Wednesday, December 1st, 2021
I took the Tableau Data Analyst Certification on September 10th, 2021. Today I received the following email:
As the beta for this exam continues, we want to remind you that you should receive your exam by early January. We do not have an update on what your exam result is. But if you fail we will provide you a free retake of the live exam, once it launches. You will not see a record of your Tableau Data Analyst beta exam within your exam account until you receive a result, so don’t worry if you don’t see your exam listed there yet! We also want to thank you for being a beta believer and participating in this process, which is invaluable to the success of this exam!
The Tableau Certification Team
What a delay! But Tableau did warn us… the Tableau certification fact explains that it will take up to 90 days after the “goal number” of exam administrations.
Tableau previously extended the Data Analyst beta period to the end of November. In today’s email they write, “As the beta for this exam continues…” and on the Data Analyst certification page they mention, “The beta for this exam has been extended through the end of the year. Take your exam now, and if you fail we’ll give you a free retake once the live exam launches.”
Tableau overestimated the rate of beta exam submissions. Will the offer of a free retake will make a difference?
I got an email saying my results were available:
The results just say Pass – no details about how well I did on the different domains.
