Thanks again for your contribution and good luck with your exam.
As Lakshmipathi said, I don't think it is possible to register without S-user id. It is clearly mentioned in third screen during registration.
If you do NOT provide your correct SAP user ID then SAP cannot upload results to their database and you will NOT receive your certificate
I am still waiting for the clarification from SAP regarding this.
Congrats to all who have received this .
I did not get this due to some email mismatch, Interacting with Jason Cao regarding this and got a confirmation
that he will take it forward and resend it. Hmmm...Let me try to do a certification
But what about the contributors prior to 2011..Are they avoided ?? .. If so i feel very bad because there were some terrific contributors who had contributed very well with quality contents.
I donot see anything mentioned for them here [Whatu2019s new?|/people/jason.cao/blog/2011/08/22/announcing-scns-topic-leaders-for-2010-2011]
Anyways happy and glad to know about all the new things ....
I got this mail regarding the free SAP certification voucher.
I have S user id also.
But the problem lies after that.
I tried registering for SAP portal development certification
but it got stuck in the third step where one popup came saying "Price of the exam not available please contact customer care"
i contacted them.
here is their reply
Thank you for contacting Pearson VUE. We received your inquiry on
Please be informed that this SAP (c_ep120_701) exam is not for delivery
within Asia Pacific region. Due to this reason, you are not able to view
the exam price. You will need to travel to America or Europe region if
you wish to sit for this exam.
If you have any further questions or inquiries, please contact us again
via e-mail or call us on one of our toll free numbers listed at
Customer Service Executive
Pearson-VUE APAC Customer Service
It says that i cannot give the exam in india.
then i checked for other exams also. For them also price is not available.
I sent mails to Richard Strattner (from whom i got the mail)
haven't got any reply.
Anybody else facing the same problem?
Funny enough, Pearson-VUE does not accept the e-vouchers in Ireland either. I also have been in contact with Richard Strattner and he kindly replied saying that he is going to try sorting this directly through SAP Education UK & Ireland. I'm still waiting for confirmation though.
For those who don't know me, I'm responsible for the SCN reputation program. I was on maternity leave this summer and came back a month ago. I just saw this thread and am now checking with my team if there has been any progress.
Let me know if you're still having issues now.
One issue I've identified here is that the certification is not available in your region (India, Ireland). We will check the status with Richard right away.
Any other issue? Is the need to have an S-User still an issue?
Sorry for the delay on our side, we're on it now.
Thank you for your initiative .I am also facing issue with Pearson to register test for C_TSCM62_64-Order Fullfilement .
I have called Pearson's Customer care and have recieved a feedback that most of the SAP test as listed are not available in any of the promitic centre in asia ( for example in India -Chennai/Bangalore) .
I did not able to schedule the test and the voucher has valiidity till 31st Dec-2011.
I hope SAP will come with some solution and help us to take up the test .
I have sent an e-mail to Richard earlier too .
Looking forward your response
Thanks and regards
Thanks for the feedback. I raised the issue with Richard regarding the problem while creating S-userid, which is required for registering the Exam.
I even tried to register the s-user id @service marketplace, but it prompt for customer installation number / partner number. I am independent consultant and do not have these details.
Hope this issue also will be resolved soon.
You don't have to worry about an expiration date this year, at least until end of December 2012
Thats a great news Laure and thanks for all the efforts taken. Looking forward for the good news that SAP India have also got the communication in this regard and they dont deny the request of members who are once again going to apply for free certification.
Apologies for not updating this thread regarding the mail I received. I received a mail from SAP Global education team, which reads
congratulations on receiving your award and free certification exam voucher for your valuable contributions to SCN.
As you cannot use the Pearson VUE voucher to register for your free exam at a Pearson VUE exam center in India please contact Tulasi Ram (see above) to arrange your free test.
Wishing you every success
I tried to contact the person mentioned in the mail (Tulasi Ram), unfortunately the mail sent to him bounced back & I informed the same to SAP global education team (this happened around 20-25 days back).
I am yet to get a reply from SAP global education team regarding this.
I am so sorry to hear you are still having issues. I've just sent an email again to my contact in India, Tulasi Ram forwarded all requests to a colleague of mine named Rashmi, and I've pinged her.
Please let me know if you don't hear back in the next week or so.
I got a positive feedback from SAP Global education (Susan Martin) & forwarded the request to SAP education India (Mr.Tulasi Ram).
I received a mail from SAP education India to fill the consent form for appearing the exam.
@ Vinod Kumar - I completed it successfully today.
Many thanks to
Laure Cetin, Susan Martin, Stephan Horvath ( SAP ) , Tulasi Ram & Stella GIM ( SAP education India ) for helping out to make this process happen smoothly. Though there was a hard time in the beginning to get the name registered in India, later it had a happy ending
I hope you aware, that I connect you and Richard couple of times, before I was in India faced such issues in free cert, even directly connected the scn team member in SAP LABS banglore India.
Later no hear from them, recently I moved to Singapore, and again I contact Richard, having said some of them SAP SG Education connect me. But no one contact me regarding this yet,
So Today I went to the website and it is allowed me to see the price list of the exams and even it allows me to schedule ( These options were nt worked before), But ALAS!!! As soon As I entered the certificate voucher details,, It returns the message as
"North American Voucher, reason voucher might be expired" ..
I got indeed disappointed , It was before confirmed by Richard that thease voucher validity have been extended. But I am getting this error.
Sorry to bother you again, But also I am requesting you to check this and help to use this voucher in SG,
Is there anyone from India ,who is able to attend this exam and go through all procedures from receiving "Exam voucher " to "registration" to "apperaing in certification exam" ?
Please let me know...
As far as I am concern , After following-up so many times ,unfortunatly I did not received anything.
Now I think even after deserving to avail free certificaiton ,I simply will not get it.
