Teradata 14 Certification

The Teradata Certified Professional Program is focused on advancing the growth of Teradata knowledge and skills to a worldwide professional IT community.

After V2R5 the latest set of exams for Teradata is – TERADATA 12. There are total 7 exams for Teradata 12 mastery course, each exam is categorized according to the different levels of skill and experience.

The list of exam are as follows –

    Thanks U


    1. admin

      Hi Ravi,

      In both the exams there are around 90 -95 questions.
      The time duration is 2 – 2.5 hrs

      As such there is no defined cut off or passing marks. A passing score is set during the exam and the individual is either at, above or below that passing marks. So nobody knows about the cut off marks.

      1. ravi


        Do you have study material/sample question on TEO(121&122), can u pls suggest me which book has to refere for basics.

  21. hemachandran

      1. hemachandran

        Thanks a lot for your prompt reply.

    1. admin

      Hi Priya,

      If you want then you can share your experience of basic and sql exam with our readers.

      1. Priya

        Hi Admin,

        Can you please explain what is viewpoint in teradata and how,why its used.


        1. admin

          you can imagine teradata viewpoint as the collection of various DBA utilities which is bundled together in the single portal for ease of B users as well as DBA personal.
          for more info refer the slide given on TD site –

      1. priya

        Hi Ravi,

        To clear the basics you can refer the teratom basics and also the book suggested by Teradataforum(you can order it from some commercial sites) in the basics exam most of the question are from the TD Architecture,TTU and storage,Locks and data protection. In the begin of the exam of 10 mins there will set of questions for survey purpose. In the SQLs(TE0-122) most of the question i have face are from DATE and TIME,data conversion,Joins,Rank and random sampling.V2R5 WBT is a good stuff to clear this exam. Please let me know is the info useful.
        All the best for your certifications

        1. Manu

          Hi Priya,

          Can you pls. share the WBT for exam TE0-122?


          1. Priya

            Hi Manu,
            Am fine to sharev the WBT of SQL but need to get the permission of site admin and will share with all.

            Hi Admin,

            Can you pls tell me how to share any docs or any material related.

          2. admin


            Please do any sharing outside of this site, also i guess WBT for SQL is freely available on Teradata site. you just need to login there and download the material. so you can give here the link and necessary steps which needs to perform.


        2. sripriya

          Hi priya,
          I am planning to take up the Teradata 12 basic certification , Could you please share the WBT material for this.
          Thanks in advance.

  23. vishal

    For the 1st level certification exam, I have heard that there are 95 questions divided into 11 sections. And to clear it, we need to score 80% in each of the 11 sections. Is this true ??

    1. admin

      Hi Vishal,

      In 1st level certification exam i.e. TD 12 BASIC (TEO-121) there are total 95 questions.
      As such there is no sections defined in the exam, but the questions will be from the overall syllabus defined for the Basic exam.

      Regarding passing percentage, teradata not reveal your score nor the passing marks :(. So there is no such confirmation about the passing marks.

      Hope that helps 🙂

      For sample papers of Basic and SQL please refer –

  29. Ashish

    Hi All

    I am planning to take up the SQL exam soon. Any ideas where I can get some sample questions and study material. I have a Teradata SQL book which was very helpful in passing the V2R5 exam when I took it. Will that be enough for this one as well?


    1. admin

      hi Ashish
      Refer the WBT (Web Bases Training) for TD12 SQL also. its a must do thing for appearing in exam.
      btw have you completed the basic exam of TD12 i.e – TE0-121 ?

  30. Raj

    Hi Nitin
    Can you tell us what is the passing percentage and number of questions in the TD12-Basic certification exam ?

    1. admin

      hi raj
      i have mailed the same question to teradata certification support and got the below mentioned reply –
      The Teradata Certified Professional Team (TCPP) does not provide a numerical score for any of the Teradata 12 exams. A passing score is set during the exam development process and an individual is either at, above, or below that passing score.
      For additional security and to further protect the exam content, TCPP does not provide the number of questions for the new Teradata 12 exams.

      So there is no way of finding the number of questions and passing marks, before giving the exams itself 🙂

  31. naveen

    asap 🙂

  32. naveen
