Concur Certification - Have you done it?

All,

Has anyone (non-consultant) gone through the Concur Certification?

Specifically (<LINK>):

1) Concur Certified Associate, Expense Admin 

2) Concur Certified Professional, Expense Configuration 

 

I've been "Concuring" and support Concur for +6 years at multiple companies, and I wonder if I could just take the test. I don't have the time for the full advanced configuration training.  Is there a test study guide or sample tests? Maybe that would help me in my query.

 

Thanks in advance.

I th this is a great idea. I'm in the same boat as you and when I first started out it was before they blocked everything so I've already done it or had the ability to do everything in the past. I test that doesn't cost $3,000 would be great.

Re: Concur Certification - Have you done it?

Completely Agree.

As per the current Concur rules, you need to have completed the training in the last 6 months, in order to be assigned the unrestricted configuration roles. This is a challenge for those who work with new clients on regular basis. A Test-only option would be ideal as it would allow us to demonstrate that we know how to handle the great power with great responsibility Smiley Wink

Re: Concur Certification - Have you done it?

They can also review our case history to see if we're high risk. What I mean by that is are we reckless with the authority we've been given or do we know when to ask for help and get the service team involved. How many catastrophic errors have we made, if any, etc. Even with limited access it's still possible to do some damage.

It's the equivalent of an honorary degree or credits given for real life experience.

Re: Concur Certification - Have you done it?

Completely Agree Amber. The case history is a good indicator of a person's ability. Simply looking at the text in the cases should be a good start.

e.g. If I am asking for primary keys of list entries, it immediately highlights that I am already aware that translation of custom and vendor list entries becomes a challenge once the list entries cross 5000.

Re: Concur Certification - Have you done it?

While at Fusion last month, I was speaking with the Concur person (sorry I can't recall her name - need to look for her card) about the certification.  We discussed the cost and I gave her some feedback.  After our conversation it seems that she was going to set up a webinar-type class at a much lower cost than was originally mentioned.  I haven't checked back since then, but do plan to . . . as soon as I find her card.

Re: Concur Certification - Have you done it?

I highly recommend the advanced configuration training. I completed the training shortly after we moved to expense in 2009 and have had unrestricted access since. There is alot more to it and damage that can be done if you don't fully understand the database structure, forms, workflows, etc. On the flipside, if you take the training you'll discover an entirely 'new' world of Concur and the true power behind it. Capabilities of what you can do is CRAZY!
Using some real creative thinking and having the advanced config. knowledge has enabled us to deliver some awesome configs to drive policy compliance, IMO.
Certification is on my plate sometime in the future. Pre-test is in the works from what I understand.
The advanced config. training was worth every penny for me and my team.

Re: Concur Certification - Have you done it?

If you feel you can pass the test without taking the class, it is your prerogative to go straight to the test.

Also, please note that for the Professional (unrestricted access) the class you can take is an in-person class at one of several SAP Concur office locations. This cannot be taken online. The online class would be for the Associate (restricted access) certification. If you would like more information, including study material, go to www.concurtraining.com/certification.

Re: Concur Certification - Have you done it?

I bet I could pass certain portions of the test (if there was one) and only need to have focused "sessions" of training.  I would love for there to be a test (like all the other posters have mentioned) as well as specific training sessions available on certain topics that a person wasn't familiar with.
