Atlassian certification program?

Hi folks,

-Is there a certification program from atlassian to individuals (not for enterprises). I'm looking for a "JIRA admin" cert, but I still haven't found this. The closest cert info I found is an atlassian old blog post circa 2012 .. But the plan seems to be abandoned. Any plans on Atlassian certification ?

-I've been looking at the "dragon slayer" test/training. If some of you already achieved the training goal, can you tell me if the t-shirt is sent for free or it will be charged with shipping costs? I live in Spain and the swag t-shirt is charged with ~$200 for bringing it from Australia!!

I know Atlassian is very aware of the demand for a certification program. 

Careful Matt, they might ask you to write it ;-)

I do not think Atlassian has a certification program now. May be some one from atlassian can mention if there is any plans of introducing it in future.

Alex and all. There is NO certification from Atlassian. If you would like some good inexpensive training go to they have some very classes. has two good courses on JIRA and Confluence.

Yup, they announced it at Summit.

The exams will be focussed on the same things Atlassian teach on the University and in their courses, so if you've been on one of the admin courses and worked through the University, you'll be well set up for the exams.

Hi Alex!

Aich is correct, Atlassian does not have a certification program, but we do have some good training options in

Regarding the Dragon Slayer challenge, when I did last year I received the t-shirt for free and did not pay any shipping fees (I live in Brazil btw).

I recently cleared the exam. It is tough but really test your experience working on JIRA. I have also written my experience preparing for the JIRA Administration Certification and also share tips on my blog here:

I hope it will help others as well.

Hello Gonchik,

You can find out all about the Certification program here:

You can get the exam topics from this page:

The top preparation tips we heard about in a recent survey of almost 100 successful ACPs are:

1. Read a lot -- specifically, learn what is in the Atlassian documentation for the product and role.

2. Take the Certification Exam Prep training course from Atlassian University.
