The sample test is designed to give the candidate an idea of the content and format of the questions that will be on the certification exam. Performance on the sample test is NOT an indicator of performance on the certification exam. This should not be considered an assessment tool.

To prepare for this test, it is first recommended that you are familiar with the job role description and the parameters this certification is based on, as well as have knowledge of the topics outlined in the test objectives/skills measured on the test. Compare your own technical level to the test objectives and the recommended training resources, and then determine for yourself how much preparation you require. Note that these educational sources are recommended, but not required (*) before taking a certification test.

Before preparing for the certification test, it is recommended that you measure your current level of skill by taking the Sample Test (located from the “Sample/Assessment test” link above)..

You can prepare for the test through the Tutor Approach (classroom, instructor led course, and other sources) or the Self-Study Approach. Sources within each approach collectively cover the skills measured on the test.

To prepare via the Tutor Approach, take course {WM102G + [(WM207G or ZM207G) or (WM209G] + (WM212G or ZM212G)}, and refer to the sources with an * in front of them. Note that per this formula, you are required to take only 3 courses.

To prepare via the Self-Study Approach, omit the courses, and refer to all other sources with and without the * in front.

(*) Notes:
The recommended educational resources listed are not intended to be a substitute for, but should complement, relevant practical experience.
Extensive product knowledge is required to pass the test.
Every effort has been made to make the recommended educational resources as complete and as accurate as possible, but no warranty of fitness is implied. The resources provided are on an as is basis.
