SAP Sybase ASE Certification

As most of you know, integration of Sybase Company with SAP Company completed in Year 2012.
Many Sybase professionals are asking questions on same topic? ….. That is Sybase Certification!!!

Even I felt that there is no proper information given on one place on “Sybase Certification exam”.

I have tried to capture maximum information in this post and hope this post will help and save time of many Sybase professionals.

Following exams are no longer available from SAP/Sybase. These exams have been retired.

  • Sybase ASE 15 Administrator Associate Certification: (Exam Code: C_SASEAA_15)
  • Sybase ASE 15 SQL Developer Professional: (Exam Code: C_SASEDP_15)

Did SAP introduce other exams for Sybase ASE Developers and DBAs?  …. “YES”

Yes, Certification Fee is around 700 SGD!!! … Don’t be surprised. Certification fee was around 200 SGD but after Sybase complete integration with SAP, it is around 700 SGD (550 USD).
