About the Informatica Certified Professional (ICP) Program
The new ICP program’s three-stage structure correlates professional certification with the “what, how and why” of Informatica implementations: •Associate – To achieve Associate status, a candidate undertakes Informatica product training and must pass a written exam, proctored in person or via webcam. The Associate exam validates that the individual understands the product (the what) and can contribute to a project as a junior team member. •Professional – Following field experience, the candidate will take a proctored, high-stakes performance exam in a physical or virtual proctored environment, successfully applying Informatica technology to solve a particular problem (the how). Upon passing, the individual is now an Informatica Certified Professional and qualified to contribute to a project team as a full team member •Expert – To achieve the highest level, Informatica Certified Expert status, an Informatica Certified Professional can subsequently elect to undertake Informatica Velocity Best Practices Training and Certification (the why). Our new exams have been developed to define product competency by job role, where demonstrated performance and outcomes validate Informatica implementation skills.
About the ICA DI PowerCenter Developer Exam and the Skill Set Inventory
This exam measures your competency as a junior team member in a project implementation team. You should be able to import sources, targets and lookups, put together slowly changing dimension mappings to incorporate best practices, craft reusable transformations and mapplets, incorporate reusability using shortcuts, be able to use the debugger to competently debug a mapping with or without a prebuilt session and workflow, and execute and monitor the session and workflow. The skill set inventory is used to guide your preparation before taking the exam. It is an outline of the technical topics and subject areas that are covered in each exam. The skill set inventory includes test domain weighting, test objectives and topical content. The topics and concepts are included to clarify the test objectives.
