DataStax Academy FAQ

DataStax Academy migrated to a new learning management system (LMS) in July 2020. We are also moving to a new Cassandra Certification process so there are changes to exam bookings, voucher system and issuing of certificates.

Check out the Academy FAQ pages for answers to your questions:

Will my exam voucher get added to the new Academy site?

New UI looks good.
In old UI, I had a certification exam voucher attached to my profile which is not visible currently, does it get added in my new profile ?
Also, it looks like my course progress is not migrated and seems like i need to restart from beginning.

Thanks for the feedback. I think it looks great too!

We are moving to a new Cassandra Certification process so it is NOT possible to book exams for a few weeks at the DataStax Academy until the new system is in place.

If you would like to book an exam, you will need to register your interest by providing your information on this form and the DataStax Academy team will get back to you when the certifications are back online.

We will honour the complimentary voucher you already have and issue you a new voucher that will allow you to pick an exam slot that suits you.

In relation to the courses, only the progress of fully completed courses (100% complete) were migrated across to the new Academy site. If you have only partially completed a course in the old site (even 99% complete), the progress will not get reflected on the new site.

For what it's worth, your course completion progress is not a pre-requisite to sitting the certification exam. I've checked your profile on the old site and it shows that you have not completed any courses.

Thank you for staying with us through the transition. Cheers!
