Exam Preparation

The information in this section will help you prepare for your exam. Acquia recommends you use the following materials to prepare:

  • Study Guides: Acquia publishes a comprehensive study guide for each certification exam. Each guide provides an exam blueprint, learning resources, and tips for success.
  • E-Learning: Acquia Academy provides multimedia training on Drupal and Acquia products, practice exams, and other resources to help you prepare for exams. We have four branches of Acquia Academy, each with content designed to serve a specific audience.

Acquia Certification exam experience

Acquia Certification exams are delivered on Acquia Academy, our Learning Management System. We partner with ProctorU to provide exam proctoring services through its platform for exam scheduling and proctoring. In addition, we use Acquia Academy for exam administration.

Taking an exam requires:

  1. Creating an account with ProctorU to schedule your exam.

  2. Creating an account on Acquia Academy to take the exam.

    Skip this step if you already have an Acquia Academy account.

  3. A Windows or Mac computer with an internal or external webcam.

  4. An updated version of Chrome or Firefox browser.

  5. Installing the ProctorU browser extension and logmein applet for use during your exam.

Supported operating systems

Currently, ProctorU supports only Windows and Mac computers as compatible with the required software. You can review the system requirements on the ProctorU online testing requirements page.
