Editor's note: This post was updated on 3/9/2017.

Since 1999, the SAS Global Certification program has helped thousands of SAS professionals achieve their career goals. In today’s busy world, it’s hard to add something else to our already full plates, but personal development can really pay off.

Here’s a list of 10 reasons to become SAS certified:

  1. Improve your skills and expertise simply by going through the process of preparing for a SAS exam. Even long-time SAS users say they benefited from the exam preparation experience.
  2. Industry validation of your SAS skills and expertise.
  3. Increased credibility with your employer as a technical professional committed to personal growth.
  4. A  boost to your earning power.
  5. When you earn a SAS credential, you also earn a digital badge, that you can share documenting your accomplishment.
  6. SAS credentials are job-role focused, meaning immediate relevancy to real world needs.
  7. SAS skills are in high demand around the globe (just check out a major job board site in your region and type in ‘SAS’).
  8. Defined training paths and certification training packages make preparation more accessible and affordable.
  9. SAS certified individuals can qualify for discounts on other SAS training.
  10. SAS certified individuals can be listed in the Directory of SAS Certified Professionals which can be easily accessed by employers to validate your credentials.

If any of the above reasons resonate with you, achieving a SAS certification is worth considering. The SAS Global Certification program includes credentials that validate SAS skills in Programming, Analytics, Data Science, Administration, Data Management and Enterprise Business Intelligence. To date we’ve awarded over 100,000 SAS credentials to individuals in 121 different countries. Here’s how you can get started to determine the best certification path that’s best for you.

Good luck, and if you have any questions, drop us a line at certification@sas.com.

  2. I have read that even as an experienced SAS programmer passing the excam is very very hard. No I have no SAS knowlage or programming experience od any kind. Will SAS Base Programming 1 e-learning course prep me enough to get SAS certified?

    • Michele Reister
      Michele Reister on

      Hi Hannes,

      We recommend both the Programming 1 course and Programming 2 course. You can take it in a classroom, via Live Web or through an e-Course. We also recommend some time and experience using SAS. Other programming experience is also helpful. Here is a recent blog post with recommendations for preparing for the exam: http://blogs.sas.com/content/sastraining/2013/02/18/top-6-recommendations-for-sas-certification-preparation/

      Good luck!
      Michele

    • My suggestion is to first read 'The Little SAS Book' from cover to cover. Then buy the Base SAS Certification Guide, and work your way through that. Go through the e-learning in parallel. I felt that the big problem with the e-learning back a few years ago was that it was frustratingly slow, and difficult to navigate.

  3. I would like to become SAS certified but I am wondering if their are courses that emphasize biostatistics. Thanks.

  4. Hi Michele Reister,
    I am certified for Base and BI. My Predictive modelling course also going on. But i am fresher statistics graduate and i am facing trouble to getting job. I am applying everyday lots of job opening but not getting call from recruiters. Everyone need experience person for there Organization :(.
    What i should do ?

      Hi Sumit,

      SAS Institute does not provide career counseling or job placement services. Generally, we recommend that you review job opportunities in your geographic area of interest on job sites like Monster.com or icrunchdata.com to see what kind of skills are needed in your industry of choice.

      Another way to investigate your area of possible interest is to review success stories for companies or industries of interest on the SAS web site (http://www.sas.com/success/). You can review the success stories by country, solution or technology.

      Good luck with your job search!

      If you've received certifications and are not receiving calls on your resume- the issue is you need a better focused resume.
      If you are getting calls on your resume but are not getting interviews or you are getting interviews but not job offers-you need interview coaching.
      There are many companies that provide these services that you can find on the internet with a simple search for what you need. Resume help, Interview coaching, or Career Coaching or All of them. Costs for these services vary widely.
      A company I highly recommend is CareerIQ. Karen over there has helped hundreds of people position themselves for their careers and for the next position they wanted.
      They have worked with clients from High school Students, recent college grads, career changers, return to work moms to V.P. and CFO .
      Disclaimer: I have been a client and done some data work with them. http://careeriq.org

      I recommend you visit their website and contact them for assistance.

  5. In the process of preparing for the Certification, I learned a lot about SAS and became more proficient in data processing and analysis. Though I am not seeking a job right now, some recruiters are willing to keep in touch with me before I graduate after I put the Certifications on resume. I hope I could sharpen my skills in SAS and statistics and find a job after graduation.

    • Terry Barham

      There are so many ways to go within SAS that it really depends on your areas of interest. A good place to start is by looking at the training website under Learning Paths at: http://support.sas.com/training/us/paths/

      Many people start with FOUNDATION courses for programming. The Programming 1 and Programming 2 courses are the most popular.

  17. Hi,

    I am currently working as a Data Analyst and very much interested in getting a SAS Certification but bit confused which certification to go for, since I am not coming from an IT field, no programming experience and never used SAS.

    Please suggest......

  18. I am a fresh graduate taking up Base SAS certification exam soon. Does the certification exam need experience in SAS to clear the exam?

    • Terry Barham

      Yes. Training courses, sample questions, practice exams, etc., can provide a strong foundation, but there is no replacement for practicing with actual software and writing code.

      There are SAS Certifications for Data Management and also for Clinical Trials Programming using SAS. Check out the website at support.sas.com/certify. Most SAS exams are $180 USD, though this price may vary slightly by country.

    In my case, i have almost 10 years experience in Consulting SAS Chile and 3 certificates SAS and my position is in disadvantage about somebody that no have certifications. It seems all is good relationships for ascending in SAS.

    I am a graduate student based out of Chicago and I must say that I have utilized my entire summer in getting myself certified.
    It has been an incredible experience learning SAS and now I am
    • SAS Certified Advanced Programmer for SAS 9
    • SAS Certified Base Programmer for SAS 9

    . My hard work has really paid off and I am optimistic about making a career in SAS and I really hope to receive calls from recruiters.

  65. Hi there,
    I am a commerce graduate, and working as program consultant. I am basically working in a PMO office, procurement shared services. I want to get into supply chain management, however, not sure if SAS certification is something that I can think of. I have no knowledge of programming. I am quite confused as to how do I get into supply chain management.

      SAS is used across many industries and job roles, including Supply Chain Management. Which SAS certification is right for you depends on what skills a particular company is looking for. If an employer is looking for analytical skills, the SAS Certified Predictive Modeler or the SAS Certified Statistical Business Analyst credential may be most appropriate. If an employer is looking for SAS programming skills, the best place to start is the SAS Certified Base Programmer. Take a look at all the available SAS credentials at: support.sas.com/certify. Good luck
