Seeking feedback on the design of two new InterSystems IRIS SQL certification exams

Hello Everyone,

The Certification Team of InterSystems Learning Services is in the process of developing two exams focused on using SQL in InterSystems IRIS and we need input from our InterSystems IRIS SQL community. Your input will be used to evaluate and establish the contents of the exam.

How do I provide my input? We will present you with a list of job tasks, and you will rate them on their importance as well as other factors.

How much effort is involved? It takes about 20-30 minutes to fill out each survey. You can be anonymous or identify yourself and ask us to get back to you. If you see yourself as an expert in this area, then please complete both surveys as we would love to have your feedback for both exams.

How can I access the surveys? You can access them here

InterSystems IRIS SQL Expert Exam


What’s in it for me? Aside from our eternal gratitude, you will be entered in a raffle where 15 lucky winners will be given a $50 Tango* card (Available for US based employees. VA employees are not eligible). Completing both surveys will double your chance to win.


*Tango cards are a popular digital reward platform that provides a wide selection of e-gift cards from various retailers.
