I want to get certified in Magento. My question is that whether it would be beneficial to get certified now or it would be better to wait for the time when Magento 2 certification will be available.

Please guide me, because I want to get it for a better career path.

If it is better to prepare for Magento 2.x certification, please share some good resources from where I can start preparation.

Note: I know links for Magento 1.x certification.

Thanks for your interest.


Magento 1 support ends in June 2020, that mean magento2 is future.

But that doesn't mean you will not get work for M1.

there are thousands of store still and will be running on M1,

in that case, if you have certification for M1 then you will have a better chance for that project.

for me Let time to come and once they release certification for M2 Then do M2 certificate as well

until that time you have your M1 certificate to show your talent.

And in future for a project like migration If you have M1 and M2 both certificates, you will have a better chance for that project.

So for me doing certification Right now also has some advantage so go and earn that certificate.
