All Certified Anaplanners follow a single learning path. To begin your certification process follow the path below.

  • Hi All, I cannot access the FP & A case even if I completed previous milestones ? I got a message with Access Denied. Any clue on how to get sifficient authorizations to start the learning ?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.


  • Same here. (no access)

  • If you get that error, email [email protected] to make sure they have your permissions set to Partner.




  • Hi All,

    You need to ask for access from Anaplan Support "[email protected] ".Please mail them and ask for access.




  • Email [email protected] not enablement, they are the team that updates it so you'll get a faster turn around 

  • Is there a seperate Solution Architext Exam and Master Anaplanner exam?  If yes, is SA required for Master Anaplanner?





  • @jpause yes, the exams for Master Anaplanner and SA are separate. While SA is not currently a requirement for Master Anaplanner status, it is encouraged as it is part of the tiering requirements under PartnerConnect. Feel free to reach out to me directly with any further questions.

  • I can not find / access any Class 299 FP&A after completing both 102 and 201 over the weekend.  I need to get enrolled in the class

    as soon as possible.  Why is the process so inefficient to get enrolled in this class?


    Please let me know if any additional information is required.  I have already contacted support & [email protected].


    Thank you.

  • yes you are right , I too don't see anything else apart from coming soon status. there is no ETA given so far

  • @ChrisMullen is there an ETA for Level 3 Model building? Also what is some of the "Advanced Topic Coursework" required to certify for Solution Architect?

  • @Steven_Barry @kkumari @khendrikz We are planning on launching Level 3 Model Building OnDemand in February.

  • @ChrisMullen Is Level 3 Model Building still on track for launch in February?

  • Yes, we are doing some testing on it right now.  

  • @admin, Level 3 model building course is already here, I think this page needs to be updated with content and appropriate links.
