Introducing the Delphi certification program

Posted by on in Blogs
Certification exams are now available for Delphi developers. Embarcadero’s Delphi Certification Program offers two levels: Delphi Certified Developer and Delphi Certified Master Developer.

“This certification program is designed to identify Delphi experts around the world. The two distinct levels of Delphi certification test general and advanced programming skills and knowledge,” said David Intersimone, chief evangelist, Embarcadero Technologies. “Earning certification can help Delphi programmers
better convey their skill set to employers, and employers can use this certification as one of the criteria to match the level of developer they need. As the Delphi Certification Program gains popularity, we believe it will raise the standards for all Delphi programmers.”

For additional information, go to:

By passing the Delphi Developer exam, you will become a special member of the global Delphi community. Passing the Delphi Master Developer exam will identify you as an elite member of the global Delphi community. Certification allows you to distinguish yourself from all the other professionals in the increasingly competitive software developer marketplace.

    Sounds great! The only letdown in my opinion is the part where the certificate is valid for 2 years.

    I mean, there are many companies still using Delphi 6/7/2006 around the world and some professionals who earn the certification are still using those versions. That said, as someone with 8 years experience in Delphi I don't like the idea of a certificate not being valid anymore after 2 years. Is that final?

    Anyway, I love seeing stuff like this happening in the Delphi world.

    Anyone who:

    1) uses the study guides to focus on what areas the exams cover
    2) has years of Delphi experience

    Will have a really good chance of passing the exams.

    We want to make sure everyone is keeping their Delphi skills updated even though they might be using a specific version for a specific job. Everyone will want to keep growing their Delphi knowledge and experience to advance inside their company, take on challenging projects, and possibly move on to new opportunities.

    I'll be always supporting ideas like that one and will be updating my skills from time to time.

    My only sugestion would be to let the professional keep owning a title (like Microsoft's MCTS, for instance) even if the certificate is not valid anymore. That would show that the professional is experienced in the specific Delphi version even if outdated.

    Maybe having a "Delphi XE Developer Certificate", "Delphi Developer Certificate", etc. would help differentiate the certificates?

    I love Delphi and I'll keep supporting any idea such as that one.
    Keep up the good work, David I.
    You're a living legend for us.
