Show employers you have the know-how to develop a model, assessed by our industry experts

TM1 Developer Credential, prove you know-how to build a model from scratch

How is the TM1 Developer Credential structured?

All candidates receive a Windows virtual server with TM1 and IBM Planning Analytics, and a scope of work. Candidates will get 48 hours to develop a model. The credential is open book and can be developed anywhere.

The model developed by the candidate will be marked by a lead assessor verified by Cubewise EDU.

An online video interview will follow to complete the assessment.

Successful candidates will be awarded a digital badge, that can be printed.

How is the TM1 Developer Credential different to IBM’s certificate?

Rather than testing knowledge with multiple choice questions, the TM1 Developer Credential tests the TM1 Developer’s ability to apply their knowledge to build a quality TM1 model from scratch, based on a set of well-written requirements.

The candidate will be asked to create cubes and dimensions, write rules, prove their ability to use TurboIntegrator, set Chores, set up security and develop a user interface.

How can employers verify the TM1 Developer Credential?

Credentialed TM1 Developers will be issued a Digital Badge that can be shared on LinkedIn or other social networks.

Is the credential compliant with an educational body?

The Credential went through a stringent review with an educational body in Australia to ensure the assessment process aligned with the broad requirements of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), Australia’s national regulation framework for Australian education and training.

Am I eligible to get credentialed?

The credential is open to everyone worldwide.

It is recommended that the candidate have experience in developing real-world TM1 models.
