Be the first to get certified

At AppSphere 2016 this November, AppDynamics University will launch the first in a series of technical certifications for IT professionals who implement and use AppDynamics. As an attendee, you’ll have an opportunity to be among the first to attain our new AppDynamics Certified Implementation Professional certification. Our first scheduled exam will be held on the last day of the event, Thursday, November 17.  Read on to understand the certification process and register now if you want to be one of the first to achieve this new professional qualification for yourself or your company.

Certification programs designed for you

Our new certifications are designed to the highest standards with business needs in mind. Our certification exams aim to focus on real-world skills and use cases relevant to current market needs. Our ultimate goal is to build a talent ecosystem where customers and partners can find the talent they need as AppDynamics becomes the industry standard.

Over the next 18 months, we’re rolling out two different certification tracks:

  •      The Systems Implementation and Operations Track is designed for those who implement and use AppDynamics to monitor applications
  •      The Applications Optimization Track is designed for those who use performance statistics to fine tune their code to ensure optimum application performance

The Systems Implementation and Operations Track will validate the knowledge and skills required to install, configure, optimize, and use AppDynamics’ core application performance manager, application analytics, end-user monitoring, and infrastructure visibility technologies. This track will consist of four certifications split across two tiers, a professional level tier and an associate level tier.

The Application Optimization Certification Track, designed with developers in mind, will initially feature one professional certification level. Stay tuned for more.

Be an APM pioneer

The AppDynamics Certified Implementation Professional Certification will be the first to be offered. If you deploy and administer AppDynamics products, this track is for you. The AppDynamics Certification doesn’t replace any of the existing partner accreditation programs at the moment, nor is it a substitute for them. As our current or future partner, you must continue to renew and attain your AEP and AES accreditations.

What are you waiting for?

Becoming AppDynamics certified will allow you differentiate yourself or your company in an increasingly competitive market — you’ll instantly gain recognition and credibility within the APM space and the greater IT industry. Lead the pack — register for AppSphere 2016 and select the option to take the certification exam.
