Magento Front End Developer Certification (FEDC)
After having launched the Magento Developer Certification in late 2011 to help experienced Magento developers differentiate themselves from the competition, Magento has created yet another certification called the Magento Front End Developer Certification (FEDC). To give readers a recap, the Magento Developer Certification helps developers to market their expertise in a competitive market where the number of Magento merchants and partners are growing constantly. The certification also helps them to improve their value as well as their income. In more than a year, over 1,400 developers have proudly earned the Magento Developer or the Developer Plus certification. Magento has witnessed a surge in demand for certifying other skill sets.
This backdrop has provided the necessary motivation to Magento to launch the FEDC certification. This is the latest addition to the Magento Certification portfolio. It verifies that professional front-end developers have the necessary skills, competence, and experience to implement user-interface related changes on the Magento Enterprise Edition as well as the Magento Community edition websites.
Magento looks forward to helping front-end developer enthusiasts with this latest qualification so that they can earn this credential and join the elite group of Magento-Certified developers. The official certification from Magento helps individuals to prove their competency over other non certified individuals.
