What is TCPP?

TCPP offers certification tracks covering the features and functionality of the Teradata Database. Certifications are designed for all audiences and offer a range of levels—from the novice to those with extensive knowledge and expertise.

Teradata Database

Become certified on the most recent version of Teradata Database, 16.xx. Start with our Associate Exam and progress based on your job role through DBA, Developer, and System Architect exams. If you finish all 6, you’ll become a Certified Master.

Teradata Database

Teradata 14

If you’re using Teradata 14, you may prefer to get this certification. Start with the basics exam—it’s the prerequisite for everything else. From there, you can take additional exams to become a certified Technical Specialist, DBA, Solutions Developer, Enterprise Architect, or Certified Master.
