Junior Certification makes it easy for educators and parents to assess their students’ or child's individual aptitude, skills, and what they’ve learned about programming, electronics, robotics, and Arduino concepts.
Junior Certification is an online multiple-choice exam that can be completed from any computer with access to the Internet. It consists of 25 questions with a 60-minute time limit.
Students receive their results immediately after submission, indicating whether they passed or failed. Passing the exam will grant students the Arduino Junior Certification certificate.
When students get Junior Certification, it demonstrates their aptitude, skills, and experience, not only with using Arduino components, but with programming and the subject matters they have learned. It also helps students with self-evaluation, giving them an understanding of the areas they need to work on or have a particular aptitude for.
The exam is available in English.
Throughout the exam, you will encounter questions that test your skills and knowledge of the following topics:
Junior Certification is based on topics covered by the Arduino Student Kit or Arduino Education Starter Kit, as they offer everything you need (components, learning content and support) to get started with Arduino, coding and electronics in a hands-on way.
If you don't have an Arduino Student Kit yet, you can buy it in combination with the Junior Certification exam, available now!
What is the difference between Junior Certification and the Arduino Certification program?
Junior Certification is based on topics covered by the Arduino Student Kit or the Arduino Education Starter Kit (you only need to use one of these kits, not both), while Arduino Certification is based on the concepts introduced in the Arduino Starter Kit.
Can I purchase the exam for my school or organization?
Yes, you can purchase multiple codes to certify your students, teachers, or team. You can buy the exam alone or in combination with the Student Kit (this is called the Arduino Junior Certification Bundle).
How will I get my certificate?
You will receive an email with a link to download your certificate in PDF format.
What should I do if I lose my certificate?
You can download your certificate from your results page at any time.
What happens if I fail the exam?
You can repurchase the exam and retake it.
At the end of each exam you will receive feedback about your performance in relation to the different topics covered in the Junior Certification exam. This information should help you improve and perform better next time.
