I have 11 years of DWBI experience. I would like to write the certification exam.

I would like to know what are the areas of certification exam will cover(syllabus)? Duration of the exam?
How the certificate look like? any sample certificate copy please upload in the website.

I am working for a BI Consulting firm. Once I am convinced, there are many colleagues in our organization may also wish to write the exam.
