Optimizely Certification Exam

Optimizely Certification Exam

I'm planning to take the exams for
Optimizely Certified User and Optimizely Certified Developer

I'm want to hear, some advises from other certificated users or developers
Wich one are the areas most important to study?
Is the study guide better than the academy program?

 

I'm an active member of the community and I have experience working with Optimizely and common problems but in some cases, I realize that are so many areas, that simple don't know.

I read all the study guide and the academy material,
But they are not even close to cover all the possible problems.

Hey Roman,

Not sure how much my perspective will mean to you, since I live in the product every day, but I found that the study guides were the most helpful in helping me prepare for my certifications. I'd also say it's a good idea to have a real implementation of any feature you aren't familiar with. I have a test project in my own account where I tested all of the advanced features, and made sure I could get them working, before I considered myself familiar with them.

I hope this helps!

Best,
Rocky

Re: Optimizely Certification Exam

Hi Roman,

That's great that you want to get certified! If you didn't see the announcement, we recently released two brand new certifications for Optimizely X.

By passing the first exam, you will become an Optimizely Certified User for Web Experimentation. This credential will replace the "Platform Certification." It is designed for folks who want to demonstrate their proficiency with building and launching an Optimizely X experiment.

For those who want to showcase their developer skills, you can become an Optimizely Certified Developer for Web Products. This credential replaces the "Developer Certification," and will test applicants on more advanced technical skills related to Optimizely X Web.

In terms of what to study, the study guide (https://help.optimizely.com/Studying_for_the_Optimizely_X_Platform_Exam) is meant to be a comprehensive list of everything that is covered in the exam. If you feel confident with the study guide, I encourage you to try the test!

To celebrate the launch of these new certifications, we are offering a 50% discount to all applicants attempting certification between now and February 15th. Simply enter the promotional code OPTLYXNEW upon registering for the exam.

To learn more about these exams and how to register, please visit our brand new certification website at https://community.optimizely.com/certification.

Hi, @jason-gsell I have been studying for Optimizely Certified User Certification.
I just wanna be sure that study guide covers all areas to pass the exam.
the mock-up exam gave me a clear idea of my level and shows me the areas that I need to improve.
