The Puppet Professional 2015 Certification is coming soon! We have updated our certification exam to include all the new features in Puppet Enterprise 3.7. Invest in your career and demonstrate your Puppet expertise by becoming a Puppet Certified Professional. Get a sneak preview of the Puppet Professional 2015 certification exam with our new Practice Exam!

Certification is a great way to demonstrate your expertise, to invest in your career, and to remain competitive in the IT marketplace. According to the Global Knowledge 2014 IT Skills and Salary Report, an overriding trend for IT professionals is increased training and certification. “Nearly half of the IT respondents in the current study have earned a new certification within the past two years, with 28 percent earning their most recent certification within the last 12 months,” the report attests.

Why update a certification? Well, it makes dollars and sense! Professional certifications can have a positive impact on your earning potential, according to survey respondents. Higher raises were likely for those who trained, as well as for those who earned a certification within the previous 12 months. And of course, certification can make you better at your job: Of those respondents who earned a new certification or achieved re-certification, more than 70 percent reported improved work effectiveness after certification.

The Puppet Professional 2015 certification exam (PPT-203) will be available in early April. The current Puppet Professional 2014 certification exam (PPT-202) is available until the 2015 version is released.

During March, before the 2015 certification exam is released, you can take the 2014 exam at a 50 percent discount. This is a great opportunity to test your Puppet knowledge, achieve Puppet Professional 2014 Certification, and earn the chance to take the new Puppet Professional 2015 certification exam for free. The discount is automatically applied during checkout when registering for the exam through

Existing Puppet Certified Professionals will be sent a promo code to take the new Puppet Professional 2015 certification exam for free. The free exam attempt will be valid only during the month of April. This includes anyone who earns the 2014 credential during our 50-percent-off promotion.

I scheduled the PPT-203, Puppet professional 2015 exam via PearsonVUE.
But it was cancelled by them, because according to PearsonVUE they no longer support those exams anymore.
However the puppetlabs website still points to PearsonVUE to schedule the exam and the PearsonVUE website still enables me to schedule the PPT-203 exam.

Question : How can I schedule the PPT-203 Exam.
I live in The Netherlands in Europe.

Hi Andre,

Puppet Labs certification exams are still delivered through Pearson VUE. There may have been a mixup in their system. I'll be sending you a direct email to sort out your registration.


I was going to sign up for the certification, but Pearson VUE is not giving the advertised 50% off the Puppet Labs exam summer promotion. Thinking it was just a temporary mix-up on their end, I checked into scheduling the exam for the past 3 weeks, but it is still showing up at full price, and I cannot find a promo code anywhere to use for the discount at checkout. And now it's the end of summer, and sadly I will have to pass on the certification for the time being.

Thanks Jamie! The Puppet Labs team were extremely responsive and attentive, and resolved my certification concerns in under 24 hours. It is a true pleasure to work with such an excellent team of professionals. Thanks again!
