Are you wondering whether a specialty exam is right for you? Check out this brief Q&A:
- What is the difference between a core exam and a specialty exam?
In the Esri Technical Certification Program, core exams test a broad range of knowledge related to multiple ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Enterprise product capabilities and how practitioners use ArcGIS software to complete defined tasks that they might encounter in the real world. Exams take about two hours and typically include 80 questions. Specialty exams, on the other hand, focus on one ArcGIS app or related technology. They take about one hour to complete and typically include 40 questions.
- Why is earning a core certification required to take a specialty exam?
Achieving a high-stakes certification is an accomplishment that speaks volumes about an individual’s professional credibility. Being able to knowledgeably apply individual ArcGIS components and related technology requires solid familiarity with ArcGIS products and strong practical experience—both of which are validated by Esri’s core certification exams. Achieving a core certification and one or more specialty certifications provides Esri certified individuals with the most value and inspires the highest confidence in them.
