Arduino Certification is an online exam that provides official certification on your knowledge of Arduino related electronics, programming and physical computing.
The exam is available in English, Spanish, German, Chinese, Greek, Bengali and Italian.
The exam is web-based and can be completed from any computer with access to the internet. It consists of 36 questions with 75 minute time limit to complete them.
You will receive your results immediately after submission, indicating whether you passed or failed. Passing the exam will grant you the Arduino Certification certificate.
Throughout the exam, you will encounter a randomised set of questions that test your skills and knowledge of the following topics:
The exam is based on the concepts introduced in the Arduino Starter Kit, as it offers everything you need (components, project book and support) to get started with Arduino, coding and electronics in a hands-on way.
If you don't have an Arduino Starter Kit yet, you can buy it in combination with the Arduino Certification exam.
How do I prepare for an exam?
There are no specific prerequisites for completing the Arduino Certification exam. However, the knowledge level and concepts tested in the exam closely match the content of the Arduino Starter Kit.
We can therefore recommend going through the content of the Arduino Starter Kit Projects book, and building the projects introduced in it.
What is an Arduino certificate?
The official Arduino certificate is a document that affirms your successful completion of the Arduino exam, and serves as a guarantee of your competence in the Arduino-related subjects. It could be used to highlight your skills and learning progress, and to advance in your career or education.
Arduino certificates use a unique QR code system which allows to instantly check their validity online, making them impossible to forge or copy.
What do I get when I purchase an exam?
You get 1 attempt to pass the exam. Once the access is unlocked, you can take the exam right away, or take your time to prepare and come back whenever you feel ready.
If you purchase the Arduino Certification bundle, you will receive the Arduino Starter Kit as well as one attempt at the Arduino Certification exam.
What happens if I fail the exam?
You can try completing the exam again by purchasing another attempt.
At the end of each exam you will receive feedback about your performance in relation to the different topics covered in the Arduino Certification exam. This information should help you improve and perform better next time.
