Certification Back to Top

If you’re interested in becoming a WordPress developer – or even just developing your own website – you may be interested in WordPress certifications to help you learn and add credentials to your resume.

No, you don’t – there are no rules about who can work on WordPress sites. Nor are there any official WordPress certifications. That is, the WordPress Foundation, which is the actual non-profit behind the WordPress software, doesn’t directly offer any certifications.

What you can find, though, are some unofficial WordPress certifications from third parties.

These certifications offer a more structured way to ensure that you know all the ins-and-outs of WordPress. Additionally, they give you something tangible to market yourself to potential clients or put on your resume.
