In order to test your own knowledge and skills and to have them validated, Magento U, the official academy of Magento, offers certifications. For a number of roles in the Magento field, you can find the right certification. Some of them are designed for a certain level of experience or for very specific roles.
For merchants and store owners, these certifications are an important indicator of the technical skills of a developer or an agency.

What kind of preparation is necessary?
You can prepare for the exam independently on your own or with an official Magento training. In both cases practical experience with Magento is key. Depending on the certification you want to achieve you should be aware of required knowledge of Magento Commerce or other Magento products.
For a perfect preparation, we offer trainings tailormade for you and the certification you want to get. All training contents are adjusted to your level.
What are the main differences between the exams for Magento 1 and Magento 2?
In the last couple of years, Magento U has reworked the exams and requirements for many certifications. The aim is to encourage people to really understand the matter instead of learning facts by heart for the exam. Especially technical questions will ask you to make use of your knowledge and apply it to solve a specified problem. As a result, practical experience from different Magento 2 projects is a big advantage when taking an exam.
About the exam
The exam of any Magento 2 certification can take place in three different ways:
- In an official test center of Magento’s partner Kryterion. Before registering for an exam, you can check where your nearest test center is. Please note that on your preferred date there may not be a free seat anymore. You will get information about free seats during the registration.
- Online at your own desk with supervision via webcam. Curious how it works? We wrote about the online exam for Magento certifications in detail in our blog
- At an event, e. g. Magento Imagine, Magento Live or some Meet Magento events. There you will often get a discount on the exam fee. Plus, if you pass you will usually get a sticker of your certification
