SolarWinds Certified Professional Program

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.


SCP Study Resources

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.
