2016 09 19 jlp exam number one rick spaanOn Monday September 19th, 2016 R2H web design from The Netherlands hosted the first ever Joomla! exam at a Joomla! Learning Partner (JLP). Supervisor Richard van Tilborg had the honor to welcome 4 candidates to this historic event. After about 60 minutes into the exam Rick Spaan became the first Certified Joomla! Administrator in the world!


Team effort

This Administrator exam was a final live test before the exam session at JoomlaDays Poland on September 24, 2016. R2H invited 4 candidates to take the exam to test drive the procedure with real candidates. Instead of PBF (Pizza, Bugs and Fun) the evening turned into PFE (Pizza, Fun and Examination).

Thanks to a great team effort by the JCP Operations Team and Platform Team there weren’t any technical issues. Everything went flawless.

Congratulations to Rick Spaan

On behalf of the entire Joomla! Certification Team, we would like to congratulate Rick Spaan for becoming the world’s first Joomla! Certified Administrator. One down, many more to go!

Rick was happy with his accomplishment. “I want to encourage all Joomlers to study for the Joomla! Administrator exam. Even when you use Joomla! for many years it is not guaranteed you will pass. So spend some time at the Joomla! Docs website to refresh your knowledge about the Joomla! core features”.
