Confluence will be my third certification and the prep course feels very different. Thankfully the prep course has updated in time for be to benefit from the improvements before I sit my exam in Las Vegas before Summit.

I'll keep an eye on this thread.

Thanks for asking @[deleted] but I only got 55% of the necessary 65%.

I am excited to see Atlassian have a new training course available for Confluence Administrators.

Once I have gone through that course I'm sure the final bits and pieces will fall into place.

I have learned that I am using Atlassian everyday of my life... (Jira & Confluence weekdays, Trello on the weekend) and I am STILL not certified for anything. So.... need to start doing some proper prep by actually booking in a certification session :)

I'm excited to learn that Certified Master is something coming soon for those with 4 or more certifications. Yes - some of us are, or want to be, that certifiable (pun intended) :P

I took the Jira Project Admin Certification prep course, and I wasn't aware that project categories and the ability to search for a group of projects via the categories in JQL was a thing you could do.

It is great when you find these little things that you never knew before.

I learned that I better forget all the aps that I have been using to accomplish configuration, workflow, time tracking, etc. in JIRA when you go to take an exam.  Everything needs to be vanilla.  It has been fun to review the product as delivered and remember how great it is out of the box.

I also learned exams were harder than I expected.  Even though I passed I wish I would have studied.  Will be studying more for my next exam.

Hi Danny,

did you ever watch a Cert prep course recording so far? Maybe one of the older ones and not Jira Project Administration? Just because the style of the prep course for Project Administration is different from the ACPs. Or don't you know anything about the prep courses yet?

As one of the people involved in delivering those courses, I'd like to share my knowledge but maybe I just wait a moment until some attendees shared theirs. Just because I'm on the "dark side" here... :D

Hey @Max Foerster - K15t

I have seen a few ACPs. Been in beta tests for ACPs as well. 

It is a rare opportunity to gain the insight of a trainer so please share your knowledge for others to learn from.

Okay! So welcome to the (Sunny Vegas) Dark Side! ;) You're maybe already aware that you have access to the exam topics for each certification. The prep course goes beyond that and will give more information about the exam itself and prepare you (if you never experienced taking an ACP exam yet) for the style of the questions, some basic tips about how to best approach a question and will go through all exam topics. That means going into more detail what areas are covered in that objective, common pitfalls, what is expected of the test taker etc. In summary, the course offers guidance in preparing for the exams. On top of that, you will have a look at a few more sample questions and in most cases, you will get some case studies to prepare for the exam dealing with real-life scenarios. That are prep course recordings summarized. :) Of course, not all of that can be covered in just 3,5 hours in a live training but if I recall correctly, you will also get access to the recording and materials to further prepare afterward.
