Atlassian Training learning paths and their destinations

In Part 1, Atlassian training is not one-size-fits-all, I provided details of the long-list of training available from Atlassian.

So how do you choose which Atlassian courses are right for you?

Atlassian have made this easy by providing lists of training courses based on 6 learning paths:

Each learning path provides a list of recommended courses, highlighting courses recommended in the path toward relevant certifications, a list of other courses that may benefit the selected learning path, and links to ongoing learning - including deep-dive technical webinars pulled from the 5 skill builders available here.

Atlassian Certification

Five of the learning paths include Certification details ranging from an entry-level certification to completing one or more of the five Atlassian Certified Professional certifications which require practical experience as well as study

The Atlassian certifications are known by a exam number, a code, and a name. The number code reflects the order the certifications were released in, not the recommended order to approach the certifications.

But I want more!

Truly dedicated experts are able to earn the designation of Atlassian Certified Master.

This recognition is reserved for people who hold 4 active Atlassian Certified Professional certifications.


Whew! This has been quite an adventure through Atlassian Training. Check out the many great articles and discussions written by members of the Atlassian Community for advice and tips on each of the certifications.


What is your learning path? Where are you on your Atlassian Training journey? What is your planned destination?

Thanks @Kat  for the information.

Do you know if one of the 4 Atlassian Certified Professional certifications (required for Atlassian Certified Master) can include AC-JPA (Note: AC-JPA is an Atlassian Certified NOT Atlassian certified PROFESSIONAL certification).

Or in order to get the Atlassian Certified Master qualification you need to have 4 out of the 5 listed ACP qualifications (i.e. ACP-JSW, ACP-JSD, ACP-JA, ACP-CA, ACP-SA).

Thanks for clarifying up this technical detail.

Hi @Nathaniel Simpson - AC-JPA/ACP-600 does not count as one of the four certifications needed to earn Atlassian Certified Master.

Will ACP-120 count for Atlassian Certified Master?

Hi @Julia I have earned ACP-120 yesterday, it is my 4th ACP (along with ACP-JA,ACP-JSW, ACP-JSD). Am I eligible for Master now? When it will appear in my certification profile?

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Oct 31, 2020

@Gregory Kneller if you read that FAQ, the ACP-120 has a different set of requirements than simply holding 4 certifications.

Read the section "Requirements Using Cloud and Server/Data Center Certifications".


@Jimmy Seddon I have read it.

I have got
 2 from ACP-JCA, ACP-JA
 1 from  ACP-JSD, ACP-CA, ACP-SA

Have I missed something else from the FAQ?

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Oct 31, 2020

@Gregory Kneller you need 2 from ACP-JSD, ACP-CA, ACP-SA not just 1.

>you need 2 from ACP-JSD, ACP-CA, ACP-SA not just 1


Why so? it is written 
"Choose 1, 2 or 3 from:"
doesn't it mean from 1  to 3 ?

You must be looking at something different this is the most recent information that has been linked:


I am knee to learn anything but coding is really difficult for me. I usually get an error that stops almost every task on my laptop, so the custom page was not quite a good idea, even I started to do my homework with the help of online website where output seems to be fab. So if you ever feel like sticking with the extension and laptop not working then go to this website to do your homework.
