    Hi,

    Is there a Sitefinity Developer Certification exam or program?  There is a hinting of getting developers certified to become a Sitefinity partner.

    Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks.
    -Ivan

    Hello Ivan,

    You chose the right time for this question!
    We are indeed launching a Sitefinity on-demand developer training course and a certification program. More info about it can be obtained here.

    We are finalizing the certification test, which will cover various aspects of Sitefinity and passing it will guarantee that whoever passed it has in-depth Sitefinity knowledge and expertise.

    If you have more questions on our certification program, please do not hesitate to post them here!

    Welcome anytime, Ivan!

    Currently we are focusing only on Sitefinity 4 as we do not distribute Sitefinity 3.x anymore.

    All the best,

    Hi Dushyant ,

    Thank you for your email. Please find our answers below:

    1. Which Sitefinity version exam shall I appear for?
    It is recommended that you will be acquainted with the latest version. However, the questions are more focused on core Sitefinity design and development principles and best practices, so if you have a solid knowledge with Sitefinity 5+, you should be good to go.

    2. Is training is required before the exam? If Yes provide the trainer contact links & cost
    There is not a requirement for a training before taking the exam. However, it is strongly recommended that you have one if you are new to Sitefinity.

    Essentially, the exam requires comprehensive knowledge and experience with the Sitefinity APIs, best practices and hands-on experience in developing real-world project and if you are lacking those, you should consider a training first.

    3. Certification cost?
    It is 100 USD

    4. Preparation time would be?
     Once you start the exam, you will have 2 hours to complete it. The exam consists of 75 multiple choice questions (worth one point each) and you need 60% of the maximum score.

     I am basically reside in India
    That is fine - the exam is held online

    For full information on exam, recommend materials and training resource, please go to http://www.sitefinity.com/resources/training-and-certification/developer-certification

    Hello Monika,

    there is no sample test available for the developer certification. However, we can provide you with 2 sample questions - please find them below:

    Q: A custom widget designer is used

    a.       To provide a configuration UI for widgets in Sitefinity’s page editor
    b.      To provide a configuration UI for custom widgets in Visual Studio
    c.       None of the above

    Q: What’s the difference between PageData and PageNode objects

    a.       PageData does not exist in Sitefinity 4.0 and above and PageNode should be used instead
    b.      PageNode is used to store organizational information about pages like their URLs and localizable properties such as Name, Title, whereas PageData stores a page’s body: widgets, layout controls, control properties, etc.
    c.       PageNode is used for monolingual pages whereas PageData collections are used for multilingual pages

    We hope this helps! Good luck at the exam.
