Is the filemaker certification exam being offered at the developer conference ?
There will not be a certification test at DevCon this year.
I was able to find 5 Pearson Vue test centers in Las Vegas if you wish to take the test either before or after DevCon.
FileMaker, Inc. :: Pearson VUE
Hope this helps,
You may find a local test facility around your stay but focus on the content
I would hope not. Doesn't sound like the best use of my devcon time. Unless FM is giving a free test with the devcon fee.
I think that there was a chance to write the exam on the Monday last year. Don't know if there will be a chance for that this year. It says June for release of Certification for FM15, wonder what day of June.
In the past (way past AFAIR), the test was given at DevCon (the day before or after). It was a convenience as testing facilities were often days away. I don't remember if there was additional fee for the test. Now there are more places to get tested, so employers only have to pay for 'day off' (and not travel expenses) in addition to the cost for the test.
But the question is valid, if there is no nearby facility to the OP.
If they do a test before or after that would be nice.
Thank you all....it's been a while since I've been at DevCon...thank you for the updates.
I think it would be more accurate to say that FileMaker Inc. is offering the FileMaker Training Series classroom training on Monday July 18th, just before the main sessions of Devcon starts, for $200. FileMaker Developer Conference 2016 The certification test questions come from the FileMaker Training Series materials. You can take this classroom training or you can just download the training and take it yourself, which typically costs $99. The FileMaker 15 Training Series (Advanced) has not yet been released. The certification test is not being given as part of Devcon, but you can take it from Pearson Vue testing centers all around the world including in Las Vegas.
If you are more of a classroom learning type person instead of a self study type person, then sign up for the classes. The instructors are often helpful in suggesting what to focus on for the test.
