What you need to know!

  • Make sure you study! Even if you've been using Joomla since the early days, it doesn't mean the exam will be easy to pass.
  • The exam covers core Joomla material only, no 3rd party extensions. If you aren't up to speed on things like core templates, TinyMCE, multi-language or ACL, it's time to get studying.
  • There is a demo exam available at exam.joomla.org (once you've registered) - however, this only demonstrates the exam format, not actual questions. The best way to study is to utilise the Learning Guide.
  • The exam consists of 60 questions in 90 minutes. Some questions are true/false, some are multiple choice format. Many questions require you to "select all that apply" to get that answer correct.
  • The required pass rate is 80%.
  • You will be notified of your results as soon as you submit your answers. If you pass, you will immediately appear in the Joomla! Certified User Directory.
