My colleagues in education programs have recently announced an update to the Notes/Domino 8.5 certification paths. The new exams will be available next month, in September 2011, and have reduced the number of exams that an individual needs to pass from three down to two. The new paths are:
IBM Certified Application Developer - Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5
Pass Application Development Core Exam 1 covering the classic Domino environment AND
Pass Application Development Core Exam 2 covering developing applications with XPages and advanced development skills
IBM Certified System Administrator - Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5
Pass System Administration Core Exam 1 covering installing and configuring the administration environment AND
Pass System Administration Core Exam 2 covering managing and maintaining the environment
A single upgrade test will grant certification on Notes/Domino 8.5 to those who were certified for Notes/Domino 8. And of course if you are already certified, your status remains unchanged and unaffected.
More detail can be found on the Certification Programs page.
