Active and retired Atlassian Certifications

Besides Atlassian Certifications, there are also a lot more credentials like Skill Batches (ASB), Pro Skill Batches (APB), and Atlassian University Credentials (only with a name) available. I will write another post about them later and focus here on the Certifications.

In the beginning, it was difficult for me to understand the differences between ACP Exam Number and the short Certification Name. But it is so simple: You take, for example, the exam ACP-100 and earn the ACP-JA Certification. Some of the Certifications have been retired because of the support end for server products or have been upgraded automatically.

Please be aware, that the name of the exam, for example, “Project Administration in Jira Server” and the credential “Jira Server Project Administration” sometimes have small differences. Same with the different Usage of “Administration” and “Administrator” or inconsistent usage of “Atlassian” in the names. This created a lot of other different uses by people and makes me read twice and carefully to understand what Certification is meant.
