The Looker Certified program gives Looker users, customers, and partners a way to demonstrate their technical skills in a particular job role. Individuals are assessed using industry best practices and standards to determine whether Looker’s proficiency standards are met. Additionally, it allows organizations the ability to identify skilled professionals to lead BI initiatives using Looker.
While we highly recommend Looker training and on-the-job experience, there are no prerequisites for taking Looker Certification exams. Please review the exam details for the exam you want to take for more information about what the exam covers and the suggested training.
Looker Certifications give you a benchmark for your professional development and allow you the opportunity to baseline your skill sets against your peers and demonstrate value to hiring organizations.
Instructions for how to register for a Looker Certification exam are in the Registering for a Looker Certification exam section.
You will need to present two forms of government-issued identification at a Kryterion Testing Center. Accepted forms of primary identification must include your name, photograph, and signature to authenticate your identity. Examples include:

You will receive a pass or fail result upon completion of your exam. You will also receive an email with these exam results immediately following your exam session. If you pass, you will receive your certificate and certified logo, usually within a few minutes of exam completion.
Scaled scores are a mathematical conversion of the number of items that a candidate correctly answers so there is a consistent scale used across all forms of an exam. Scaled scoring models are used to equate scores across multiple exam forms that may have slightly different difficulty levels.
If you don't pass an exam, you can retake it after five days. You will only be allowed three attempts in a 12-month period. Payment is required each time you take an exam.
Circumventing this retake policy by registering under a different name or any other means is a violation of the exam terms and conditions and will result in a denied or revoked certification.
You must be 18 years of age or older to be eligible for any Looker Certification exam.
Currently, we are not considered a partner of LinkedIn for adding certificates, but you can manually add your Looker Certificate to your profile. Details are in LinkedIn help — adding, editing, or removing certifications on your profile.
Your certification will be valid for 12 months and then will be extended as long as you meet the recertification requirements outlined in the maintenance requirements.
