What is the Joomla Certifcation Program?
According to the Joomla website, the Joomla! Certification Program was “created to ensure the competence of Joomla! professionals through documented measurement of skills and knowledge. The program aims to establish a certain standard whilst promoting a qualified workforce”.
The Joomla! Certification Program began as an idea in 2012 and held its first exams in 2016. The exam is now offered at Joomla User Groups, JoomlaDays and the Joomla World Conference. Joomla Community volunteers from around the world worked together to produce this program to help customers promote their skills as proficient administrators.
To test your knowledge, you can register for a demo exam to get an idea of some of the test questions.
Why should you become Joomla certified?
Certification can be an excellent starting point for potential employers and clients who wish to hire a Joomla! expert. By becoming officially certified, it shows that you have a full and complete understanding of Joomla’s core administration, and how it can best be applied to a company or client’s project.
Once you are certified, you are given an official “Certified Administrator” badge to display on your website.
The badge links to the Joomla Certified Users Directory, which verifies that you are, in fact, officially certified.
