RSA Identity, Governance, and Lifecycle


RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle certifications have a single certification path: Administrator.  The Associate exam is a prerequisite to the other exams and may be an ideal stopping point for anyone who is seeking proof that they understand basic RSA IGL concepts that do not delve as deeply into product capabilities as the subsequent exams will do.  The RSA IGL Associate exam is based entirely on our free (no-cost) courses.


For those who wish to advance their RSA IGL certifications into the world of product administration, the Specialist exam is based primarily on the RSA IGL I – Administration course, while the Expert-level exam includes RSA IGL II – Advanced Configuration & Design and more.


At this time, no Master level exam is being offered for Identify, Governance, and Lifecycle.   


For users that obtained certifications between January 1, 2019 and when the new exams are launched, the following mappings will apply:

  • Users who obtained the legacy RSA IGL Associate exam will be granted the new RSA IGL Specialist: Administrator certification
  • Users who obtained the legacy RSA IGL Professional exam will be granted the new RSA IGL Expert: Administrator certification


Users that obtained legacy RSA IGL certifications (Associate or Professional) before January 1, 2019 or are just beginning their RSA IGL certification journey are encouraged to begin with the new RSA IGL Associate certification and continue through the Proven Professional program.


Important:  Be sure to note the expiration date for each exam.  Associate level exams do not expire, but subsequent exams carry a two-year lifespan.  In order to advance to a higher-level exam, the previous level exam must still be active.
