Earn Your Certification and Showcase Your Success


Are you attending UC 2018?  Have you been considering Esri Technical Certification as part of your development plan?  You are in luck!  The Esri Technical Certification Team will be hosting our exams at the upcoming User Conference so you can validate your skills and experience onsite.




Before the Conference

First things first, you will need to head over to the Esri Technical Certification website to review the exams we offer.  Once you have decided on an exam that best fits your skills and experience, you will want to carefully review the qualifications, skills measured, and software tested on so you can identify any knowledge gaps prior to taking the exam.  Additionally, the Preparation Resources PDF provides a useful list of learning options and online resources, organized by topic, to help you prepare.  For every exam, we offer a free web course with sample questions so you can get an idea of how exam questions are structured.

Once you know which exam you want to take, visit our Esri Technical Certification UC Exam page to reserve your seat.

Lastly, please ensure that you have a Pearson VUE account and can login or access your profile before you head to the UC.  If you need assistance with your Pearson VUE profile, please contact their customer service team for help.
