Certification Tracks

Developed with the utmost transparency and consistency in mind, the Informatica® Certified Professional Program is designed to measure and validate your Informatica implementation skills against established criteria. There are two levels of certification:

  1. Informatica Certified Specialist
  2. Informatica Certified Expert

Certification is based on confirmed product knowledge and field experience. Informatica product competencies are assessed by job role:


  • The Informatica Certified Specialist level exams measure your competency as a full member of an Informatica project implementation team. You must pass a proctored, written exam to become an Informatica Certified Specialist.
  • The Informatica Certified Expert exam evaluates your fluency with Informatica's proven implementation methodology, Informatica Velocity® and validates your ability to lead an Informatica project team.

These rigorous exams focus on not only your Informatica skills and capabilities, but also on your performance and the outcomes of your Informatica product implementations. They have been developed by recognized subject matter experts to measure competencies in tasks by role and to provide clear expectations of requirements and key factors for success. Exams deliver a consistent measurement and validation of the skills needed to ensure a successful implementation and maximum return on your Informatica technology investment.

"Certification is a key component to improving customer and partner satisfaction. Customers' expectation from their service providers has shifted…the top three expectations are peace-of-mind deployments, capabilities, integrated solutions. Certification improves not only market differentiation but profitability as well."
