Why Contentful certification?

Contentful experts are in demand. Whether you’re a seasoned Contentful veteran or want to become one, a Contentful Certified Professional credential gives you a way to demonstrate your expertise.

If you are a manager responsible for a Contentful project, having members of your implementation team become Contentful certified reduces risk and can increase your confidence that your project will be successful. If you’re hiring new team members, hiring a Contentful Certified Professional means quicker ramp-up time and more Contentful expertise on your team.

If you’re part of a digital agency that is a Contentful partner or that is considering building a Contentful practice, having Contentful Certified Professionals on staff will speed implementations, increase client success, and help you win new business by making your Contentful expertise stand out from the crowd.
