Master your Arduino skills and get certified!

Arduino TeamJanuary 25th, 2019

The Arduino Certification Program (ACP) is an Arduino initiative to officially certify Arduino users at different levels and evaluate their expertise in key Arduino knowledge areas. Certifications are offered at three tiers — enthusiasts, educators and professionals — which have been identified as the largest Arduino user groups through extensive feedback from the community.

The first step, the Arduino Certification: Fundamentals Exam, is a structured way to enhance and validate your Arduino skills, and receive official recognition as you progress. Anyone interested in engaging with Arduino through a process that involves study, practice, and project building is encouraged to pursue this official certificate.

Developed in consultation with leading technology curriculum, interaction design, and electronic engineering professionals, the Arduino Certification: Fundamentals Exam assesses skills based on exercises consisting of practical tasks from the Arduino Starter Kit.

The official assessment covers three main key areas: theory and introduction to Arduino, electronics, and coding.

During the exam, you will be asked to answer 36 questions of varied format and difficulty, which should take approximately 75 minutes to complete.

Questions will test your knowledge on, but will not be limited to, the following topics:

  • Introduction to Arduino: Physical computing and Arduino, Arduino Uno, Arduino IDE and uploading, programming basics, electronics concepts, blink!, and the breadboard.
  • Sensors and Actuator: Sensors, actuators, as well as digital and analog input/output.
  • Input and Output Types: Using serial monitor, LEDs, motors, piezo as input/output, switches, variable resistors, IR, and PIR.

The Arduino Certification: Fundamentals Exam is currently on display at Bett 2019. Stop by stand C375 to see a demo for yourself and learn more about the program!

    Will be exciting when this rolls out publicly! I am sure we will be informed when it does, but is there a projected timeline?

  16. 26loptica62 Says:

    Just a few questions….
    Will the test be on-line (only)?
    Will the certification be free or (US$ $$$ ?)
    If the certification is on-line how will you know if the person being certified is that person?
    Will there be any final-in-person (face-to-face) exam?
    What will the certificate be valid for? (Like in “Monopoly” the “play-money” is worth something only while playing the Game)
    Once you get certified -ok- then what? Next level…. ok and when you hit the ‘professional level’ then what?
    I understand that open-source stuff is all about sharing and “free” learning but…. what’s the catch?
    What is the practical side of getting certified at any level?
    I’ve been teaching Arduino officially in school in the past 5 years without any certificate. My sallary has not increased although I’ve had a lot of expenses through the years.

    Thank you in advance (anybody!) for any logical clarification on the matter….
