We want to make sure you have a clear understanding of the steps you need to take to become a Certified WordPress Expert.

Five Steps to Certification

Step 1: Getting Started – Exam Guides

We have exam guides for each level of certification. These guides consist of written material as well as instructional videos. The guides provide an easy-to-follow outline of the knowledge required for the specific level of certification you desire. 

Step 2: Live, Instructor Led, Online Training

In the vast world of certification training, our training is unique. It’s live, online, one-on-one instructor led training customized to you and your training goals. 

Step 3: Practical Experience

It is highly recommended that you apply your training to adequate on-the-job experience prior to taking the final exam. We provide development sites loaded with the most popular themes and plug-ins that you can check out and privately work on the topics of your choice.

Step 4: Exam Prep

We have sample tests for each of our three paths of certification. These tests will help you decide if you are ready for the testing phase and to help prepare you for the final exam. 

Step 5: Take the Exam

The certification exams measure your skill using the WordPress website platform. They are intended to establish your level of expertise that comes with training and with real-world experience.
