What Does Magento Certification Mean?

The Magento Certification ensures that our developers are familiar with the fundamentals of the platform and serious about fortifying their education. Through this training, we can confidently assert that our team has the skills necessary to tackle complex Magento challenges. Magento Plus certification is a signal to you that our developers have honed their craft to the point of surpassing industry standards.

However, certification isn’t the be-all, end-all of Magento expertise. That only comes with consistent success with real-world projects. For a more in-depth qualification, we at Hara Partners further prepare our development team with additional Magento training designed to achieve tangible results in consequential settings. We’re glad to offer this extended training, available in 10-session blocks, to developers looking to expand their e-commerce horizons.

Who Should Take the Magento Certified Developer Exam?

We encourage any developers who are serious about the Magento platform to extend their knowledge base and credentials with Magento certification. It comes straight from Magento, after all, and it’s a fast and thorough way to acquaint oneself with the platform’s coding basics. A note of caution: take care not to sacrifice actual development experience in doing so. The Magento certification provides great theoretical grounding, but it’s no substitute for applied work.
