  1. Great to learn

  2. The courses dont seem to work, please advise

  3. Thank you – this is super helpful. Would you please consider an update with the cost for courses and tests? Also time requirements for the study courses (a range would be good!) and a general idea of how long the test is would be fantastic! Thank you.

  4. What is the cost of certification ?

    Is there any discount to IBM employees ?

  5. The link for “How to Become a Certified Specialist of IBM SPSS Statistics Level 1 v2” appears to be unavailable.

  6. Hi there! So I created an account, it looks like the certification costs $200 for the online, remote proctored exam (which is a great option!).

    Do the courses come included once you register for a date? Obviously we need to take all of those courses to know what to expect on the exam! Thanks

  7. Hola
    Me gustaría saber el costo de la certificación como instructor personal 1 y 2, ya que no dependo de ninguna empresa..

  8. Hi all, please direct all questions to https://developer.ibm.com/answers/topics/spsslicensing/ – This is not a regularly monitored section.

  9. Wondering if the training courses links can be removed and replaced with: https://www.ibm.com/certify/exam?id=C2090-011
    You can refer people to the exam preparation page. I just received a notice that the training links are broken.
