Is the Splunk Certified User Certification a prerequisite for Splunk Fundamentals 2?

Explorer

Hi there,

I am trying to figure out whether the Splunk Certified User Certification is a prerequisite for Splunk Fundamentals 2.

I have completed Splunk Fundamentals 1, up to and including its 'Final Quiz'.

I am registered for a Jan 2 offering of Splunk Fundamentals 2, but the certification track visible here

 https://www.splunk.com/en_us/training/certification-track/splunk-certified-power-user.html

seems to imply that I must complete the Certified User Certification Exam before I can undertake the Fundamentals 2 course.

Could anyone clarify for my peace of mind? (I have now emailed splunk to register for the Certified User exam, but I am concerned about whether they will get back to me before Jan 2.)

Thanks for any assistance.

Xavier

The only prerequisite for Splunk Fundamentals 2 is successful completion of Splunk Fundamentals 1.

The URL you provided is for the Power User certification. You must pass the User certification exam before taking the Power User exam, but no certification is required to take the Fundamentals 2 course.

Thank you. This advice matched that provided by the Splunk education team. It was something of a simple, obvious question, but because of an inflexible scheduling issue it was important that I clarified this, so thanks a bunch for helping 🙂
