The Associate Dell Boomi Developer Certification is designed to validate your proficiency in a foundational set of core competencies. The Professional Dell Boomi Developer Certification is designed to assess and validate your mastery of a comprehensive set of core competencies that are essential to sustained success with the Boomi Platform.
(NOTE: You do NOT need to take the Associate Developer Certification exam first. The Associate Developer and Professional Developer Certification exams are not sequential.)
You may choose to pursue your Associate Developer Certification first, upon completing the Boomi Essentials and Developer 1 courses. Then you could continue training with the Developer 2 and Developer 3 courses which would position you to take the Professional Developer Certification as a next step.
You can bypass the Associate Developer Certification exam and simply complete Developer 1, Developer 2 and Developer 3 sequentially and pursue your Professional Developer Certification instead.
The chart below highlights the core competencies offered by the Associate Developer and Professional Developer pathways.
