@nicholas_171633 there are 2 kinds of certification available -- Apache Cassandra 3.x Developer and Apache Cassandra 3.x Administrator.

The Developer track is for software engineers who write applications for Apache Cassandra. The Administrator track is for sysadmins and DBAs who want to be certified as Cassandra administrators.

For more details, see the DataStax Academy Certifications page. Cheers!
