The Esri Technical Certification Program is growing to support the needs of the global GIS community. If you work with ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Enterprise, ArcGIS Online, or developer technologies related to ArcGIS, there are new exams available (or coming soon) to help you validate your knowledge and skills.

The process to achieving certification begins with selecting an exam to take based on your current experience. Review all the information provided on the exam’s web page—especially the candidate qualifications and skills measured—to determine which exam offers the best match.

Once you’ve chosen an exam, purchase an exam voucher and then make an appointment with Esri’s testing partner, Pearson VUE. Esri certification exams can be taken at Pearson VUE testing centers or remotely using Pearson’s OnVUE option.

Planning adequate preparation is vital to passing a certification exam. Allow yourself plenty of time to study, and pay extra attention to exam topics that you’re less familiar with.

With these tips in mind, take a look at the following recently released certification exams to see if one is right for you:
