Atlassian certification

Hello Guys,

How useful would it be to be an  atlassian certified administrator?

Would it give more knowledge on "how to trouble shoot backend issues" ?

Would it be really helpful for a career?


Any sort of insights are welcomed, kindly share your thoughts!!!

Hi Muthanna!

I am certified under the Confluence Administrator certification (ACP-200). The assessment and prep is great for knowledge of front-end administrative tasks (e.g. managing permissions, reindexing within the app, delegating user groups, etc.). But it didn't have any back-end knowledge included.

If you're looking for more back-end knowledge, you may want to look into the Atlassian System Administrator certification (ACP-500). I don't have personal experience with this one, but it appears to address more of the server-side administrative tasks.

I hope this helps!
