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.

When have the new certification prices been updated?

You've recently cut the prices by half for your certificates, if I am not mistaken. Was there any press release with the new changes?

As I try to update my huge list of "All NoSQL Certifications in 2021", and I'd like to present the most accurate information.

Thanks for asking.

The prices changed when we switched to a new proctoring service provider (Mettl.com) back in August 2020. Cheers!

I think I found the answer :).

It was Jeff, on Oct 22, 2020 (around two months ago), on company's blog:

Your Fast Track to a Cassandra Certification

That's when the blog came out. Not quite when we actually did the switch to Mettl and new pricing. :)

It was in fact a two-stage process:

  1. We switched to a new learning management system (LMS) in July 2020.
  2. Then we switched to a new proctor service in August 2020.

Cheers!

Thanks, Erick.

IMHO, you should advertise it more, people don't know about these changes.

2-3 months ago I myself gave up, because the Dev certification was $300 or $375 US. Now, at $145, I think I'll go for it :)

Cheers
