Joomla!® Certification Programme is launched

joomla help support cheshire manchester merseyside north west ukIn 2013 the Joomla! Project introduced the Joomla! Certification Programme, a series of professional qualifications accredited by The Joomla! Project, beginning.

There were intended to be three certificates: Administrator, Template and Developer.

But we have so far (in 2021) seen just one certificate introduced: the Joomla! Administrator Certificate.


Purpose of the Programme

The Joomla!® Certification Programme was created to "ensure the competence of Joomla professionals through a tangible measurement of skills and knowledge".

FOUR reasons for the new certification programme

  1. Establish a standard.
  2. Ensure competence and develop a qualified workforce.
  3. Provide a documented measurement of knowledge.
  4. Help Joomlers choose a service provider.

"Professional certification can play an important role in the decision of a company or business owner when hiring skilled individuals for specific roles".
