Grand Master designation

The Drupal Grand Master designation is earned by any Drupalist who has demonstrated advanced Drupal expertise by achieving certification in the Acquia Certified Developer, Acquia Certified Back End Specialist, and Acquia Certified Front End Specialist exams of the same Drupal version.

No separate exam is required to become a Drupal Grand Master. The Acquia Certification Program awards Drupal Grand Master credentials to Drupalists who pass all three of the exams. Acquia awards the Drupal Grand Master designation for all versions of Drupal.

There is no certificate for a Grand Master designation. A Grand Master designation is indicated in the Acquia Certification Registry. Under the users’ profile, they will receive a Grand Master badge for the respective Drupal version once the designation is achieved.

Can I achieve Grand Master credentials by mixing D7 and D8 certifications?

No. Grand Master credentials are specific to a major Drupal version. To earn Drupal 8 certification Grand Master credentials, you must pass only the Drupal 8 Developer, Drupal 8 Front End Specialist, and Drupal 8 Back End Specialist exams (same for Drupal 7 or 9).
