Acquia Certification Registry

If you opted in to sharing your data during the registration process, once you have passed an exam, your data will be transmitted to our Certification Registry for the world to see (allow up to 12 hours for this transmission). Potential employers use the Registry to look for Drupal and Acquia product talent, and many of our partners use the Registry to market their team’s skills.

The Acquia Certification Registry uses the data in your Webassessor profile to create your registry profile, so if that is out of date, so will be your registry listing. To request an update to your registry listing, use this form.

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.

Missing profiles from the certification registry

Inclusion in the Acquia Certification Registry is opt-in. If you have opted in, during the exam registration process, it takes between six and 12 hours for a candidate’s name to display on the registry. If you can’t find your name after 24 hours, send an update request.

What do I do if information from my record is missing or needs updating?

If your registry record needs to be updated, send an update request.

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).
