As Fisheye already have 2 Magento 1 Solution Specialists and are a Magento Professional Solution Partner, we were invited to participate in the early Beta version of the Magento 2 Solution Specialist Certification. So, on Monday our Technical Director, John Hughes, and our Backend Development lead, Galahad Longshadow, took a trip down to Newport to sit the exam.

What Is a Magento Solution Specialist?

A Magento Solution Specialist is an expert user of the Magento Commerce platform. Drawing on a deep background in business and commerce, the Magento Solution Specialist can efficiently align business objectives with Magento 2 functionality, optimize use of native features, and avoid unnecessary customization. Whether as a merchant, a manager, a consultant, or an analyst, the Magento Solution Specialist knows how to make the best use of Magento 2 technology

What is the Beta version of the Magento 2 Solution Specialist Certification?

Magento has always offered a way for its partners and people working with their system to become officially certified. with the introduction of Magento 2 a new exam needed to be created so that people can be a certified solution specialist in both Magento 1 and Magento 2.

The beta of this exam is a computer-based test consisting of approximately 150 multiple-choice questions based on Magento Community Edition 2.x Open Source and/or Magento Enterprise Edition 2.x Commerce. Its a pretty tough challenge but is a fantastic opportunity to help shape the content of the final exam for the entire community.

Results will be in 4-6 weeks. Fingers crossed! (although obviously they don’t need it 😉 )
