Becoming a SolarWinds Certified Professional® (SCP) helps ensure you have the technical expertise to effectively use and maintain SolarWinds® network and systems management products. Earn a SolarWinds Certified Professional certificate to improve your marketability as an IT professional and stand out from the crowd.
The SolarWinds geek-tested, product-specific exams cost US$200 (or 60,000 THWACK® points) and certifications are valid for 3 years. The SCP program also includes one exam retake.
Each product-specific SCP exam has an exam preparation guide. The exam preparation guides are not all-inclusive and should only aid as a starting place for your studies.
If you have a SolarWinds product under active maintenance, you have access to virtual and on-demand training.

After you successfully pass your exam, SolarWinds issues a BadgeCert digital badge and certificate. You can share your badges in your email signature and on social media for all to see.
