Certification Challenge Wrap Up
What a busy October we had! Sharing NRU’s Certification program with our community turned out to be a lot of fun, AND I think many of us learned a lot about New Relic’s APM product.
This campaign only ran for the month of October, but the resources are still available to you, and will be for a long time! We here in the community wanted to kick off the certification with our friends at New Relic University because many of you already know a lot about our products and we want to celebrate that. Become certified and put that on your resume! Resources like the certification webinars, assessment, and this certification category will be available to you from here on out.
Let’s go back over all of the certification campaign details, working backward:
Coffee Chat with Phil
Phil @philweber joined us for a special Coffee Chat study session to help us prepare for the certification assessment. We picked Phil’s brain (Phil is one of the authors of the certification test, by the way) for a whole hour and was able to get a handle on what kinds of questions were being missed by test takers, and why they were being missed. The entire slack conversation with Phil can be found here!
Twitter Test Prep
We had twitter poll after twitter poll of test prep questions. These tiny pop quizzes were meant to help give you a glimpse into what the assessment would look like. Are you following our community twitter handle? @Learn_NR
Certification Category & Resources
Lastly, we created this special category full of helpful videos and tutorials that help contextualize and teach about New Relic. Come here any time! This area is your virtual classroom. Feel free to ask questions in these threads, watch as many videos as you want and take the certification assessment whenever you feel ready.
New Relic Certified Explorers
And congratulations to the many others that became certified in the month of October! You may have noticed that newly certified Explorers have a custom title next to their name in this platform. Of course, we can’t forget, all participants that were certified during our challenge get special certification socks!
Thank you so much for having fun with this. We will be sure to update this category as the certification program grows and evolves!
