Confusing list of valid certifications in SAP Training Shop

Some time ago I passed P_SD_65.

I tried to find a link to it via the Training Shop without much success.

When I log on to Credential Manager and view My Certificates there is no expiration date for this item, which lead me to believe that it is still valid. On the other hand, when I check the link to valid certifications from My Certificates page: https://training.sap.com/certification/validity , I am unable to find it in any of the sections - valid, retired (withing 'grace period'), soon to expire. This probably should mean that the certification has expired and it is outside of the grace period. Out of curiosity, I tried to look for an equivalent for SD professional level certification and I could not find anything - there are just Associate level exams (e.g. C_TSCM62_67), which add little value if you have already passed the professional level.

It is also confusing that certifications like C_TSCM62_65 are considered valid, while the professional level (P_SD_65), which covers the same version and supposedly more topics, is not. I am perplexed what could be the idea behind such decision.

This leads to a few open points:

1. If P_SD_65 has expired - why this is not reflected in Credential Manager?

2. If the certification has not expired - why the code cannot be found in the Certification Shop?

3. Is there any code for a valid Professional level certification for Order Fulfillment (ERP)?

4. If there is no valid professional level certification code for ERP Order Fulfillment yet - how can I find out when a new one is planned and be notified when it becomes available? Via subscription?

5. Considering that clicking on view details for some certifications specified as valid leads to "No topics have been set for this course" page (e.g. - P_EA_1 https://training.sap.com/certification/P_EA_1/ ) - how reliable is the list of valid exams?

    Hi Veselina,

    Thank you for your questions. P_SD_65 was retired on 30.09.2017. However there is a ‘grace’ period of one year for this exam so it will still be valid until 2018. You can consider the list of valid exams to be a reliable list of the exams currently available. Thank you for reporting the link issue with P_EA_1 - I will follow up on this. I have also contacted my colleagues regarding the profession certification for ERP Order Fulfillment and will get back to you as soon as I have a reply.

    Best regards,

    Amy O'Callaghan
