After passing your Joomla! Administrator exam you will receive a badge to prove you have the right skills. Because Joomla! listens to its community, we wanted YOU to pick your favorite badge! The winning badge design was presented at the Dutch Joomla!Days (April 15th, 2016). The badge will appear on your certificate and is visible on your Joomla! Profile.

Badge/Logo usage

Certified Users have several choices of how to indicate a certification on business cards, letterhead, resumés, websites, emails and marketing materials. They may indicate only the certification areas that they have achieved in the program.

Certified Users must have accepted the terms of the “Joomla! Certification Exam Agreement for Candidates” and be in good standing under such agreement before using any of the Joomla! Certification badges and/or logos as described in these guidelines.

If you are no longer in good standing or do not agree to the terms of the Joomla! Certification Program Agreement, you must immediately discontinue the use of Joomla! Certification badge(s).

Open Source Matters (OSM) reserves the right to spot-check all materials bearing Joomla! Certification badge(s) and may periodically send out requests for samples. User must correct any deficiencies in the use of the Joomla! Certification badge(s). Refusal to correct such deficiencies or to cease publication or distribution will result in revocation of the right to use the Joomla! Certification badge(s).
