Frequently Asked Questions

How can I prepare for the exams?

While there are several options for how to prepare for the examinations, we recommend participating in one of our courses. The naming scheme of KNIME Courses makes it easy to identify the equivalent level in KNIME Certification Program: For instance, the two courses with the prefix [L1-DS] and [L1-DW] will prepare you for the L1 examination. Please have a look at the Courses Overview page for more information about our course program.
