We at WSO2 offer a certification program for partners, customers, and just about anyone who is an expert at our products. Our certification program is relatively new, but as the products rise in popularity, the number of exam registrations keep increasing at a steady rate making it more competitive. Currently, we offer certifications for three products and also a certification exam for Solutions Architects.
What can WSO2 certification do for you?
- Certification gives you the platform to prove your skills to yourself and others
Have you worked on WSO2 API Manager for many years and can write extensions in your sleep? Certification provides the perfect opportunity to verify the skills you already have and prove to the world that you are an expert. Our products solve complex problems and are not the easiest to master, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your IT skills are up-to-date and in demand.
- Certification forces you to dig deep into the product
You may have downloaded our products and tried out a few tutorials. But you may not have been able to motivate yourself to spend more time to master the product. The most effective way to learn something is to prepare for a test!
If you register for certification, you will need to go through the self-learning material, navigate the documentation, dig deep into the code, and learn the product well enough to answer the questions. You will discover exciting features that you didn’t know existed. What’s more, our exams are open-book, which means you get to read and learn about the product even while doing the test!
- Certification gives you a competitive edge over your colleagues and increases your employability
Certification is an investment in your career. If you are already employed at a company that uses WSO2, you are proving to your employers that you are serious about your work. Who knows, this might be exactly what you need to bargain for your next promotion! If you are searching for a job, a WSO2 certification will give a boost to your CV.
If you are a developer who has been working with our products for a while, it doesn’t matter if you are working for a customer or partner or on your own—go ahead and register for our certification. If you are new to WSO2 products, check out our resources, learn on your own, or request on-site or online training, prepare some more, and go ahead and take the test!
