We get a lot of questions around performance testing certifications, specifically HP LoadRunner. I hope you find this article informative and answers most if not all of your questions. Why all the attention? HP LoadRunner is a popular load testing software suite and many employers are looking for people with HP LoadRunner experience – it is a great resume or CV enhancer. Even companies that don’t utilize HP LoadRunner use the skill set as a competency gauge.

If you’re wondering “what exactly is HP LoadRunner”, here is an excellent outline:

HP LoadRunner is the industry standard for application performance testing. The load testing tool helps you prevent issues by detecting bottlenecks and to obtain an accurate picture of end-to-end system performance before going live. Extremely flexible for organizations and projects of all sizes, HP LoadRunner software testing tool enables you to test a range of applications including mobile, Ajax, Flex, HTML 5, .NET, Java, GWT, Silverlight, SOAP, Citrix, ERP and legacy.

Editor's note: LoadRunner v11 has been replaced with LoadRunner v12. Please read out blog post HP ATP - LoadRunner v12 Certification Deep Dive on how to get started or upgrade to LoadRunner v12.

Hewlett Packard has two HP LoadRunner certifications:

  2. HP ASE - LoadRunner v11

First off, there are no prerequisites for either of these certifications. Second, the certification path you choose will depend on your level of experience (or inexperience) with HP LoadRunner.

Thanks. Its really informative. But when I try to get the exam schedule for HP0-M99, it displays that No Certifications found. Does that mean there are no certifications planned for HP0-M99 or is it an On-Demand exam?

Hi There.  I use all HP products for my business activities and I never have a compliant!   I, too, have the same question as Rajan. 





I need the certification Dumps... Can any one provide me the info on that.


Best Regards,

Stay away from and avoid any exam dumps or exams for sale. The only approved method endorsed by HP is the HP Press Study guides, exam prep guide and approved courseware.

Using exam dumps or exams for sale off the Internet will put you and your partner organization at risk. It is also considered cheating.


I approved this post so I could comment on the subject of exam dumps. If anyone would like to add to the subject of cheating on exams and certifications, please post in this discussion thread.

What do ASE and AIS stand for?

I am planning to take HP AIS loadrunner certification. Recently HP released Loadrunner version 12. So do I have to take up HP AIS LoadRunner 11.00 Certification or wait untill HP makes announcements for HP AIS LoadRunner 12.00 ? If so approximately when HP may announce ?


I am willing to wait and take up latest certification program.

Mike I

Same question as the last person. 3 months on and he still hasn't received a reply, so not sure if this one will be honoured...


When are the LR certifications going to be updated to version 12? It's been 6 months since v12 has been released and HP is still basing it's exams on the old v11? Even v11.50 was a major upgrade bu that seems to have been skipped.


HP ATP - LoadRunner v12 is scheduled to launch on Nov 3.  It will be replacing HP AIS - LoadRunner v11


Thanks for your informative article on software testing. LoadRunner is popular automation software testing tool that used to validate a software application by generating actual load. Further, it gives precise information about a software application or environment.



What is the latest certification on HP Loadrunner?

And what is the version of the tool?


Loadrunner v12 is the latest version. We have a v11 and v12 certification available.


Does the HP AIS – LoadRunner v11 belongs to the Loadrunner version 11 software?

Please confirm


yes, the HP AIS – LoadRunner v11 certification maps to Loadrunner v11 software


I'm looking for v12 certifications. Can someone post the links for v12?

Shruti Seth

Hi, I want to give the HP ASE – LoadRunner certification. Can you please confirm if the new version has come or scheduled to be released soon? Or which one is the current exam number needed to be given.


I have a question on calculating Performance of a website.  If a site has multiple Java Script files, Will this be included for calculating Performance Load Time?  Please clarify.  




I am planning to give HP Loadrunner Certification V12, which HP ATP V12. 

The first question I have is if this is comparable to HP AIS v11 test. Can anyone please leave their valuable comments if they have given it already. 


Thanks in advance.
