Videos and Quizzes

An Exacademy training is split into many short videos. Every video captures one specific topic, and you are provided with a lot of examples and live experiments. After some of the videos, a small quiz will test your knowledge. These quizzes are non-graded material.

Hands-On Exercises

While the quizzes are theoretical questions and non-graded, the hands-on exercises are graded material and require practical usage of the Exasol database. This means, you are asked to write SQL queries or scripts, or to inspect system tables. In the course “Exasol Essentials”, you will install the Exasol Community Edition. Alternatively, you can use the Exasol public demo or another Exasol database instance.

Certification Process

After you have successfully finished an Exacademy online training, you will be invited for a certification test. The test consists of multiple-choice questions and you need to achieve at least 65% to pass and receive a certificate. The certification cost is 150 EUR per attempt. You can directly pay via PayPal or your credit card, or contact your Exasol person of contant in advance if you are interested in purchasing certification voucher codes for your team.


Each course has an active discussion section where trainees can help each other. In addition, the instructors, and other Exasol employees will monitor the forums and try to help. Often the fastest answer comes from another student. For all questions that are not directly related to the course content, you can use the user community or our support.
