The Developers Path

In our research and analysis on Drupal Developers, we saw how a rounded skills and knowledge set made for a better developer. We created our first exam, the Acquia Certified Developer, as a core exam that cut across Site Builder, Front and Back end along with web development to address this.

This exam will identify strengths and weaknesses, and the test objectives will show you where to focus. There is self-study material (eBook plus blogs), as well as four day instructor led course. This course requires six months of experience to fully take advantage of the lab based courseware which will help you in job and at the same time help you prepare for Acquia Certified Developer exam.
The Acquia Certified Developer Front end and Back end Specialist exams take a focused dive into these areas of specialization. The new Acquia Certified Grand Master credential is awarded to those who pass these three developer focused exams in the 2014-15 calendar years. Yearly requirements will be posted to achieve and maintain this status.

For those who have achieved Grand Master status, we believe they will be a tremendous asset to any Drupal project.
