Comprehensive skill assessment

The Bubble certification is a thorough exam covering every aspect of Bubble development. It ensures that a certified developer is skilled not only in Bubble's features but also in complex application building and problem-solving.

  • Customized for what you need as a client
The certification is continually updated to reflect new features and changes in Bubble.

Proctored exam ensures authenticity

The proctored nature of the Bubble certification exam significantly enhances the reliability of a developer's credentials. This exam is closely monitored by a specialized third-party.
Using automated software, they record and analyze the exam session to verify the identity of the exam-taker and ensure compliance with exam guidelines. This surveillance confirms that the candidate is not only the actual person taking the exam but also adhering to the integrity of the exam process without unauthorized resources.
The involvement of a third-party proctoring service adds a layer of professionalism and security to the certification process, making it a trustworthy indicator of the developer's true skills and knowledge in Bubble development. For employers, this means the assurance of hiring a developer whose expertise has been authenticated in a controlled and secure environment, backed by the credibility of the proctoring organization.
