The Appian Credential Program

Bolster your professional reputation by earning an Appian Credential by applying best practices and successfully delivering high-quality Appian applications.

The Appian Credential Program allows individuals to demonstrate the required knowledge and/or skills to perform key Appian roles according to Appian best practices. Our credentials confirm mastery of all user levels interacting with the Appian Platform.

There are three credentials available: Analyst, Designer, and Lead Designer. These credentials are independent; you can enroll in any exam at any time. However, higher level exams also contain questions from preceding tests, so it is recommended to complete Analyst, then Designer, then Lead Designer.

  • Analyst Credential - A multiple-choice exam evaluating an individual's knowledge of Appian user interfaces as well as their ability to plan an application according to Appian best practices
  • Designer Credential - A multiple-choice exam evaluating an individual's knowledge of Appian design concepts as well as their ability to build an application according to Appian best practices
  • Lead Designer Credential - A two-part exam, consisting of a multiple-choice test and an interview with one of our Architects. The Lead Designer credential evaluates a designer's knowledge of the platform and experience leading a project on Appian.
