SolarWinds Certified Professional Program Changes for 2019

One year ago SolarWinds Academy released the new SolarWinds Certified ProfessionalRegistered program. After reviewing the year, we decided to make a few changes—namely removing the subscription option from the program.

The SCP program still has elements our SCPs enjoy, such as one exam retake, the convenience of anytime, anywhere testing, and sharing an SCP accomplishment with digital badges and THWACKRegistered SCP icons.

The 2019 SCP program includes:

  • SCP Online*
  • SCP study hours with SolarWinds experts
  • Access to select GNS3Registered courses
  • For SCPs working for SolarWinds customers under active maintenance, you will be recognized as an SCP member within the support system and provided with an enhanced support experience

  • Hi nan thanks for the update. Can I ask, does this mean that each individual product exam extends the overall SCP Expiry date, similar to Cisco exams, or will each product have individual expiry dates?

    For example, you take NPM in 2018, then SAM in 2019, and NCM in 2020. Does NPM still expire in 2021 or does it get extended with each exam?
