SUSE Certified Administrator (SCA) in OpenStack Cloud

You can obtain your SUSE Certified Administrator in OpenStack Cloud through the Certified OpenStack Administrator (COA), a new industry-recognized certification from the OpenStack Foundation that demonstrates your ability to administer an OpenStack cloud environment.

When you have passed the exam on the openSUSE platform, you'll need to email your COA certificate to us at, and you’ll also be awarded the SCA in OpenStack Cloud from SUSE.

Coming Soon - Updated SUSE SCA in OpenStack Cloud 8

Following the recent decision by the OpenStack Foundation to withdraw the COA exam, SUSE Training will be launching a new SUSE Certified Administrator in OpenStack Cloud 8 exam and certification. The new exam will be released in April at our SUSECON conference in Nashville, TN. Candidates with the existing COA based SCA in OpenStack Cloud will not be required to take the new exam.

Study Options

As with all SUSE certifications, course work is not required.  Once you have reviewed the relevant objectives, you only need to pass that particular certification test in order to achieve the certification.  Having stated the conditions for achieving the certification, we highly recommend you study the objectives and practice anything that you are not prepared to perform from memory and experience on live systems.
