The Joomla! Community has a new reason for celebration. Actually, 100 reasons! Another great milestone has been reached by passing the 100 Certified Administrators mark. This happened in just 9 months, since the launch of the program in August 2016.
JoomlaDay Malaysia had the honour to host the first Joomla! Exam ever. The Netherlands, Poland, Italy, Canada, America, United Kingdom, France, Austria, Germany and Spain followed. In total, about 200 candidates took the exam. The first 100 Certified Administrators are mostly from Europe and the USA. The Netherlands lead the charts and have the most: 35 Certified Administrators!
The exam supervisors received many compliments about the organization and the quality of the exam. It's not the easiest exam, but the questions are fair. They truly test the knowledge of Administrators. One advice many candidates want to give to fellow Joomlers:
Install a clean English Joomla! site without any third-party extensions and turn it into a multilingual website with users that have different access levels.
The next step is to expand the reach of the Joomla! Certification Program to more countries than those mentioned, starting with the exam session at JoomlaDay Australia in Brisbane on June 17, 2017. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi!
And now... let's celebrate!
