PLEASE NOTE: Due to recent world events and Qlik's decision to change the in-person QlikWorld conference to a virtual event, we are in the process of making some changes regarding the Datathon - read below for the latest details
Our planet is facing a climate crisis. Join Qlik and C40 Cities to help solve it!
Qlik and C40 Cities have launched a Datathon, a series of challenges to help solve some of the issues at the heart of our current climate crisis. We are inviting our Qlik Academic Program students across the globe to develop data and analytic solutions for a climate resilient earth to support healthy ecosystems in multiple geographies.
Who: Qlik Academic Program students – individuals or teams of no more than two students. If you are not a current member of the Qlik Academic program, please register here (please note to enjoy the full Datathon experience all participants must be part of the Qlik Academic Program). Professors are welcome to mentor or champion a team but are not eligible to participate.
What: There are four challenges, all related to a global set of cities, plus an additional “choose your own challenge” option. All entries will be reviewed and judged by Qlik, C40 Cities and other experts from climate organizations. A winner will be selected for each challenge. Challenge winners will be announced in May and presented during the QlikWorld virtual event with an overall winner announced after QlikWorld! Important links:
Where: Individuals or teams of no more than two students can participate anywhere from around the world!
How: Start by filling out the registration form and accepting the Datathon terms and conditions (please note: if you have a team of two, BOTH team members must register separately – be sure and use the same “Team Name” on both registration forms).
Hundreds of our professors and students have successfully earned Qlik Sense Qualification badges, have you?!
The Qlik Academic Program is excited to announce that we have launched a NEW VERSION of the Qlik Sense Qualification Exam which covers the February 2020 Qlik Sense release!
What is the Qlik Sense Qualification Exam?
After learning skills in the Qlik Learning Portal, and applying your skills using Qlik products, you can test your knowledge to earn a Qlik Sense Qualification! Two qualifications are currently available: Business Analyst Qualification and Data Architect Qualification. After passing a two-part exam, you will receive a printable certificate and a digital badge to share on your resume, LinkedIn, and other social sites!
What has changed in the exam?
The exam has been updated to reflect a new version of Qlik Sense based on the February 2020 release.
To ensure your current exams are not interrupted, we will temporarily keep both the February 2019 exam and the February 2020 exam available to you until May 29th. After May 29th, the February 2019 version will be retired.
Where do I take the exam?
The exam and all of our resources are available in the Qlik Learning Portal through the Qlik Continuous Classroom! Simply log into the portal using your Qlik Account username. Select Programs, go to the Academic Program section and then select Access Resources. The exams are available under the Assessments icons.
If you are currently an active member of the Academic Program, you automatically have access to the new qualification exam.
If you previously earned a Qualification, you can still access your certificate and digital badge in the Qlik Learning Portal by selecting My Account in the top right hand corner and selecting the badge icon.
If it has been more than a year since you last applied, we recommend you check us out by visiting qlik.com/academicprogram. There you can apply as a professor or student and receive access to all of our wonderful program resources!
