Atlassian Certified Expert: Introducing our new name and path for our top-level credential



We’ve renamed our Atlassian Certified Master credential to Atlassian Certified Expert, and launched a Confluence Pro Skills Badge to help you get there. This is just the beginning. As we add more new Certifications in the coming months, we will be updating the available pathways to earn this exclusive designation.

Why the name change?

Atlassian believes in striving for more inclusive language across our products. Atlassian University identified “master” as vocabulary that could be replaced and help us move toward a more accurate and inclusive ways to represent our most accomplished learners.

Read about more ways your team can work to be more inclusive in Atlassian’s Work Life blog.


Thanks for the update @Julia ! Looking forward to learning for the needed Expert certifications. Also excited about the available pathways in the future! :)

Thanks for sharing!

Is it possible to add the pro skills badge

APB-710 Jira Align Agilist: Pro Skills Badge

As an "additional certification" (similar to confluence space admin skills badge) as an additional way to obtain the Atlassian certified Expert Credential.

Jira Align is an additional Atlassian Product Offering, and so it makes sense to include it as an optional pathway for obtaining the Atlassian Expert Credential...

Hi @Julia , could we download our ePDF of Atlassian Certified Expert (ACE) Certificate if we passed ACE exam requirements? Please advise.  Many thanks.



Nailed it!! You have done a great job, @Julia

What are the new requirements to become an Atlassian Certified Expert for Data Center? As you noted, 2 of the 5 exams are retiring but it still says you need 4 out of 5 in all paths on

If we earn the ACP-610, ACP-100, and APB-220, then would we be considered Experts? If not, what can the new 4th one be that's for Data Center, not Cloud?

EDIT -- RECEIVED A REPLY ON "Unfortunately, the Atlassian University Team has not releases a DC equivalent to ACP-420: Managing Jira Service Projects for Cloud. At this time getting that Cloud certification would be your only option, or waiting until a DC certification for that has been made available."

The better option for DC-focused folks, instead of earning a Cloud certification for Jira Service Management, is to earn 2 Jira Admin certifications, one for Cloud.

This path will be advantageous from a career development perspective and learning Jira Admin for Cloud builds nicely on your existing Jira Admin expertise.
