Joomla!® Certification Programme is launched
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
- Establish a standard.
- Ensure competence and develop a qualified workforce.
- Provide a documented measurement of knowledge.
- 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".
