Snowflake Advanced Certifications: We Have Added Another Advanced Certification to the SnowPro Family

Do you know about Snowflake’s advanced role-based certifications and how they can help you continue to stand out in the data community as a Snowflake expert? Our newest SnowPro Advanced: Administrator Certification allows candidates to showcase their expertise and continue to meet the market demand for Snowflake Administrator skills. This exam tests your ability to apply comprehensive data cloud administrative principles using Snowflake and its components and your knowledge of advanced concepts. This certification is designed for Snowflake practitioners who have at least two years of Snowflake Administrator experience. 

When you successfully pass this new exam, you will receive a digital credential validating your Snowflake Administrator skills and extend the expiration of your existing SnowPro Core Certification. This digital credential is delivered in the form of a certification badge, available through Credly.  As one of the first individuals to hold this credential, you will also be able to source current job postings and salaries on Credly by filtering by your badge. 

Snowflake certification value

As of May 2022, there were over 15,000 U.S.-based job postings listed in Credly listing a preference (or even a requirement) for candidates with experience using Snowflake. Once you have obtained the advanced Snowflake certification, you can use the Credly Labor Market Insights and skill tags to search for jobs specific to your certification, and also see real job postings, requirements, and salaries.

Charlie Rosado, Sr. Principal Data Engineer at Slalom, has seen tremendous value in becoming a SnowPro: “It has helped advance my career and also helped me develop a team of engineers who are also certified SnowPros to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations to deploy Snowflake environments.” 

And Chris Hastie, Data Engineer at InterWorks, has also seen enormous value for job applicants who hold a Snowflake certification: “Candidates who hold a SnowPro Certification can pretty much hop, skip, and jump right through the vast majority of InterWorks technical interview processes. ”
