Announcing a new Splunk Certification, now in Beta With Free Registration

We are excited to announce a new Splunk Certification: Splunk O11y Cloud Certified Metrics User. Registration for this new Certification exam is open NOW in beta. It might seem like secret code, but if you’ve been around Splunk for a while you know that O11y is short for Observability – and you just might be prepared to get certified for it!


Beta exams are a critical step in our exam development, so we’ve made this exam free for all candidates. As a beta, the exams are a bit longer and the results will not be immediately available, but the results are completely valid for those who pass.

Splunk Certification is designed to verify proficiency in specific skills with proctored industry-standard examinations – just what your career (and LinkedIn Profile) needs! Validate that you're a Splunk O11y Cloud Certified Metrics User with our new Splunk Certification and badge!

If you feel ready and qualified for the challenge, practice for the exam using the test blueprint and register for a free exam appointment. (Similar to our other exams, this beta can be taken in-person at the testing center or via OnVUE online proctored testing.)

All the details can be found on the Splunk Registration Page on the Website

Happy Learning!

Hi there Rajasekhar90!

This certification is no longer in Beta, so it's the regular price unless you are attending our annual conference in Vegas starting this weekend. All certification exams are only $25 at .conf23. Hope this helps!
