How do I sign up for the exam?
If you already have a JoomlaDayUK Ticket and would like to sign up for the exam, please find Richard Von Tilborg on the day at the pre-exam session and he'll be happy to add you to the system.
How much does it cost?
The actual price of a Joomla! exam is different per country. To give everybody the opportunity to take the exam, the prices are based on the so-called “Big Mac Index”. The price for the Administrator Exam in the UK is $65 (US Dollars, around £51.00).
How can I revise, what should I know?
The certification site has a list of resources to help you study (https://certification.joomla.org) and there will be a pre-exam revision session on the day to help you get the best out of it.
Our top tip is to revise the areas of Joomla! you don't use every day, so if you don't build Multi Lingual sites, brush up your knowledge there or if you don't use certain core components such as Banners, Contacts or Newsfeeds, make sure you've given those features a good once over to improve your chances.
What happens during the Exam Session?
You will take your exam on your own laptop in a quiet room. No smartphones, no other electronic devices, no paper notebooks, no cheating!
A Supervisor will ensure a quiet environment so you can concentrate on your exam.
In the Safe Exam Browser (SEB) you will get 60 questions that you have to answer within 90 minutes.
When you pass the 80% correct answers mark, you will receive a Joomla! 3 Certified Administrator Badge and your personal certificate.
I still have questions, who can I contact?
If you still have questions regarding the exam, please email the Supervisor for this Exam Session, Richard Von Tilborg
