How do I get more information?
Why get certified?
Certification enables you to prove your capabilities as a WSO2 developer and gain recognition as an individual who is guaranteed to excel at implementing WSO2 projects.
Who can get certified?
Anyone with a good working knowledge of a WSO2 product can try for certification. Prior experience and training on that product is highly recommended.
Are exams proctored?
There are no designated exam centers, and you may complete the exams online in a quiet environment with no distractions. To verify your identity for the practical exams, you must use a webcam that is focused on you throughout the examination, and you will record your screen and webcam input using an online tool. You do not need to use a webcam or share your screen for multiple choice question papers.
How can I obtain a Professional certification?
Professional certification will be awarded upon successful completion of four multiple choice question papers for the WSO2 Certified API Manager Developer and WSO2 Certified Enterprise Integrator Developer examinations and upon successful completion of two multiple choice question papers for the WSO2 Certified Identity Server Administrator and WSO2 Certified Solutions Architect examinations. More details about the structure of examinations is provided at https://wso2.com/training/certification.
How can I obtain an Expert certification?
Expert certification will be awarded upon successful completion of both practical exams. More details about the structure of examinations is provided at https://wso2.com/training/certification.
What types of questions appear on the WSO2 Certification exams?
The examinations consist of 4 multiple choice question papers (Standards and Technology, Features, Deployment and Configuration Management, Extensions and Customization) and 2 practical examinations (Practical Exam 1 and Practical Exam 2).
What do the practical examinations consist of?
Expert consists of two practical examinations covering different use cases of the product. You get a maximum of two hours to complete practical exam 1 and three hours for practical exam 2. Each practical exam will present one or more use cases that have to be implemented by the candidate within the given time period. These use cases will be from the topics mentioned in the Prerequisites section of https://wso2.com/training/certification for the relevant product.
To complete the exam, you will need to connect online, share your screen with the examiner, and also use a web camera to verify your identity.
How much time do I need to sit for an exam?
The multiple choice question papers take 1 hour or 2 hours per paper. The practical exams take 2 or 3 hours.
After initial registration, is there a time period within which I must complete the exams related to that particular certification?
You must complete the multiple choice question papers within 30 days of registering for the examination and the practical examinations within 60 days of registration.
What is the pass mark?
You must get 70% or above on each examination paper in order to successfully pass the examination.
How many chances do I get for each level?
You may take an examination twice before having to re-register for that level. For example, if you fail the Standards and Technology exam while passing the rest of the multiple choice question exams, you may take the Standards and Technology exam again. If you are unsuccessful the first time, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will enable the exam one more time free of charge. If you are unsuccessful in the second attempt, you must re-register for the multiple choice examinations but only need to take the Standards and Technology exam.
How many times can I register for each examination?
You are allowed two registrations per examination. After two registrations, if you still have not managed to successfully complete the exams, you must work on the product for 3 months before registering again. If you have successfully completed 3 out of the 4 multiple choice question exams, you may reregister in a month.
Can I search for answers online?
You may use the internet to search for answers during the examination, as this is an open-book test. However, you may not collaborate with any third party or get any information from any individuals except for the examiner.
Can I share examination material?
Retention of the examination materials in whole or part in any written, oral, electronic, or other medium (other than for the duration of the examination) and/or reproducing, modifying or revealing the contents thereof to any third party is strictly prohibited and violates WSO2's copyright to the examination materials. Violation of the foregoing shall be deemed to be grounds for failure of the examination and such candidates may be barred from reapplying for certification in the future.
Are certifications only valid for a particular version of the product?
A certification may be valid for a number of versions of the product (for example, API Manager 1.10.0 would be valid for 1.9.1 and 1.9.0 as well). This will be reflected on the certificate awarded to the candidate.
What happens when a new version of the exam is released?
Those who have successfully completed the previous version of the exam may be given exemptions for some parts of the exam depending on the changes made to the product.
