@Sabrina Glawion 

You can start with ACP-600, this is basically for Jira Project admins and it is easiest one among all.

You can take in this order

1) ACP-600 (project administration in jira server) -

2) ACP-300 (Agile Development with Jira Software) -

3) ACP-100 (Jira Administrator) -

4) ACP-200 (Confluence Administrator)-

5) ACP-400 (Jira Service Desk Administration)

6) ACP-500 (Atlassian System administrator)

The exam details are in the links, In the link go to Preparation -> other resources  -> Sample exam questions -> you can find some sample questions for the exam.

¿Are this courses ordered by exam difficulty? I did a few months ago ACP-600 with 6 months of experience and was easy for me prepare and pass it in one week, now I want to get ACP-500 but the course looks like a short manual without any information.

@Jorge Jerez although we cant compare the difficulty level of the certifications, i suggest you to take the certifications in this order.

I suggest you to take ACP-100 and ACP-200 before ACP-500 because ACP-500 is both jira and confluence system administration certification and you need server level administration knowledge to pass ACP-500.

@sandesh2026 But for the ACP-200 Atlassian recommend 2-3 years of experience administrating Confluence, and actually I only install and manage Confluence in server instances, but I don't administrate spaces, integrations or other similar things. 

After get ACP-600 which one do you think will be easier to get in a couple of week?

@Jorge Jerez after acp-600 you can go for acp-300 if you're good with agile. Otherwise go for acp-100 which is jira system administration.

@Jorge Jerez - I have written 10-week study plans intended to be done in a few hours a week alongside people's 'day job'. This article provides a brief overview of the different certifications and experience levels recommended before taking the exam.

ACP = Atlassian Certified Professional


The first of the three numbers (100, 200, etc) reflects the order the certifications wee originally released. These offer no clues to the complexity or experience requirements to be confidant of a pass.

The certifications are valid for 18 months. This date can be extended by taking badges. Some badges will extend more than one certification. Some certifications do not have badges yet because they are new but these will appear before the earliest certifications approach the expiry date.

Hi Kat, hope you're good.

Myself and some colleagues have been using JIRA now for 3 years and we have our ACP-300 exam booked for some time next month (although we can push dates back if we feel unprepared).

We've looked at your 10 week plan and have got some of the add-on material from the Atlassian site to help like, the "Agile Development with Jira Software Certification Prep".

Are there any past paper materials we could leverage that could give us more of a clue on the type of questions we could expect? We've already accessed this which helps:

Thanks for your time.

Atlassian does not provide many sample questions to help with exam preparation. There are a few sample questions under the Preparation section of and some on the Certification prep course.
