G’day, learning & certification community!
Have you ever enrolled in a course, or studied for a test, or tried to learn something—and just plum lost your motivation along the way?
Thanks to the collective power of community, the best part about tackling something is that you can do it alongside others. The good news about pursuing something like Atlassian certification, a Fundamentals course, or even starting in on a learning path in order to improve your career options is that you’re likely not doing it alone!
When it comes to Atlassian certification, for example, we’ve got a handful of Community members who have also tackled certification. On our Community alone, we have a few stories from our very own leaders, members, customers, and students (!) to show that learning never stops, and that you can always find inspiration 💡 for what you hope to achieve.
Here are a few existing stories from the Atlassian Community to get you started, with some new ones publishing this month that we’ll link to once they’re live:
