FAQ

What is Data Literacy?

Data literacy is typically defined as being the ability to read, write and communicate with data. In more practical terms, it means that if a colleague sends you a link to a dashboard you are able to interpret the graphics and tables and talk through what you are seeing with others. You can find a much more in depth article on Data Literacy on our blog.

Why is Data Literacy important?

With businesses focusing more and more on using data to make decisions, being able to interpret and talk about data is an increasingly important skill. It can help you to work alongside data professionals to ensure that you are making informed decisions backed by data.

How much do DataCamp Certifications cost?

DataCamp Certification is included with your premium subscription, so there are no additional costs. When you subscribe you will have access to all of the learning materials to prepare for your certification, practice assessments and exams and the certification itself.

Does DataCamp provide materials to prepare for Certification?

Yes! As part of your subscription, you will have access to our content library that includes hundreds of hours of courses, practice and projects. You won’t need to complete it all though. We have curated a series of Career tracks that will guide you through building the core skills you will need for certification. Once you feel ready, we also provide a range of resources to help you prepare for the exams themselves, giving you a chance to experience the process before you start.

When do I have to take the exams?

For DataCamp Certifications you can take the exams whenever you want. Just like the rest of the DataCamp platform, we have designed the certification process so that you can fit it into your schedule. For some of our exams, once you start you will have a set number of hours to complete, and you will have 30 days overall to complete all of the requirements. But otherwise, the process is designed so that everyone has the opportunity to get certified.

Our Fundamentals Certifications do not expire. As they are designed to show proficiency of fundamental knowledge that is unlikely to change over time.
