Each BDSCP certification requires the completion of a specific set of exams. In order to pass the required exams, you are encouraged to take the corresponding course modules listed on the Courses page.

Pearson VUE Exams

Each exam has a unique code that contains the number of the module the exam corresponds to, plus an optional alphabetic version identifier. For example, Exam B90.01A is the code for the exam that corresponds to Module 1: Fundamental Big Data. The "A" is the version identifier. Exam codes may be displayed with or without the version identifier. For example, you will see this exam referred to as B90.01 or B90.01A.
