Certification as Joomla! Administrator


Since July 2016 APPLICATIO is an official Joomla! Learning Partner. With immediate effect APPLICATUIIO thus offers - as one of the first in Germany - a certification programme for official Joomla! Administrators (related training offers will follow later)


APPLICATIO's offer - based on the official programme of Open Source Matters - starts with the so-called Joomla! Administrators Exam. In later stages, further certification programmes for Template-Developers and Component-Developers will follow.

The Joomla! Administrator Exam is the first available certification exam. It covers topics related to Joomla! Users who have access to the backend as Super Users and perform an Administrator role. This exam validates a user’s ability to:

  • understand Joomla's basic architecture
  • manage content
  • manage users and access
  • manage website extensions, components, modules and plugins
  • manage multilingual websites

Exams are taken on site, they are computer based, in a multiple-choice format. A total of 60 questions need to be answered in 90 minutes.  The exam is currently only available in English. As soon as enough translators have passed the exam, we will offer the exam in different languages. This approach is necessary in order not to exclude anyone from taking the exam.

If you are interested in getting certified, please book an exam here and use the opportunity to be amongst the first to be certified
