Laravel Certification Program Announced at Laracon 2017

A licensed Laravel certification platform was announced at Laracon EU this week, and a new landing page is up at The Laravel Certification is a Human Music B.V. product and is officially licensed by Laravel LLC.

The certification price will be €249 (about $295.78) for a personal certification and a team certification is €1245 (about $1478.90). Right now you can get a pre-order discount of €50 off on the personal certification and 15% on the team certification.

Here are the topics that will be covered in the certification test:

  • To pass the exam, you need to be fluent in building apps using the Laravel framework v5.5.
  • If your day job involves building Laravel applications, you’ll probably do fine. The exam is designed for you. That said, it’s probably a good idea to go over the Laravel documentation, and get a refresher.
  • If you’ve never built a Laravel application before, read the Laravel documentation, and try building some small to experiment with the various features.
  • Topics covered include (but not limited to): HTTP, routing, blade templating, services, localization, security, collections, queues, database, Eloquent, …
  • We’re also testing your knowledge of widely accepted best practices in the Laravel community.
  • You need working knowledge of recent PHP versions, including topics such as object oriented, closures, and various commonly used features.

The official site also provides a FAQ where you can read answers to the most frequently asked questions and submit a ticket to ask questions.

The certification has a board of advisors that “ensures high-quality exams, and guarantees that we can make the Laravel Certification program work to continually benefit the community.”

The board of advisors listed include Taylor Otwell, Freek Van der Herten, Chris Keithlin, Joe P Ferguson, and Duilio Palacios.
