Magento U Launches Certification for Front End Developers
In late 2011, we created Magento Developer Certification to help experienced Magento developers differentiate themselves from their competition. This certification helped developers market their expertise to the growing number of Magento merchants and partners, and it increased their value and income. In one year, more than 1,400 developers have earned Magento Developer or Magento Developer Plus Certification, and we have seen a growing demand for certifying other sets of skills.
To meet this demand, the Magento U team is excited to announce the launch of Magento Front End Developer Certification (FEDC). This latest addition to the Magento Certification Portfolio verifies that professional front-end developers have the skills and experience to implement user interface-related changes on Magento Enterprise Edition and Magento Community Edition websites. We look forward to helping you earn this important credential and join the elite group of Magento-certified developers. Don’t just tell your clients you are good; prove it with official certification from Magento.
