New Poll – Esri Tech Certification

As we mentioned a few weeks ago on the podcast, today (January 17) is the first day that you can register for the new Esri Technical Certification tests. At launch there are five options:

  • ArcGIS Desktop Associate
  • ArcGIS Desktop Professional
  • Web Application Developer Associate
  • Enterprise Geodatabase Management Associate
  • Enterprise Administration Associate
  • with more to come later. Our new poll asks which certification category, if any you are interested in. If you want to share additional thoughts on this new certification please share them in the comments section below.

    A bit more information…the tests will be administered at Pearson Vue locations which means that there is probably a testing center in your country (if not multiple) and if you are in the US, there will definitely be options that are probably an hour or less drive. The tests are 90-95 questions which apparently take around two hours. There is no specific passing score apparently so you will have to wait a few days to receive email notification of your pass/fail results.
