General points

Exam sessions:

There was an exam held on
September 11th 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland. There were 9 candidates  all of which took the German language version of the exam. Seven of the nine candidates passed. 

There is one exam confirmed in the upcoming period.

  • October 16th 2020  -  Chicago, USA.(number of candidates not yet known).

Website and Exam platform
We have identified and fixed the blocking issue with our new question management system. The issue with the exam platform itself has also been identified and we are working with TechJoomla to remedy this as soon as possible.

Operations and Marketing

We also updated the Certification FAQs to include information about the exam second chance initiative which gives candidates a discount on their second attempt. ( Point 7 - What happens if I don't pass the exam ?)

J!4 exam(s)
We are now starting preparations for the J!4 exam(s). The J!4 Administrator Exam should be available approximately 6 months after the J!4 release date, this gives the JCP team enough time to complete the questions and answers based on the released version (including any initial bug fixes). This period will also give users sufficient time to use and learn J!4 and to prepare for the exam.
We will be shortly looking for volunteers to help us (re)write the Administrator exams Q&A's, if you're interested please contact us!

Next meeting: will be held on October 28th, 2020.
