We are extremely pleased to announce that the Symfony and Twig certification exams are available online! It means that you can now take the exam from home or from your office! You need your computer, a web cam and a stable Internet connection!
Fabien Potencier introduced the Symfony certification program during his keynote at SymfonyLive Paris 2012 and the first certification session was organized during the conference. At that time, the certification was only organized during official Symfony events. The exam was hold in the conference venue and proctored by the SymfonyLive team. Then different exam sessions were organized during the year at SensioLabs’ offices. The first certification was dedicated to the 2.3 version of the framework.
In October 2013, the Symfony certification was launched worldwide and available in 4,000 physical exam centers to enable much more people to take it. At the same time we introduced the « Advanced level » as an intermediary step before the « Expert level ». Since then, the certification exam was only available in one of the 4,000 worldwide exam centers available.
The Symfony 3 certification was launched in December 2015 and the Twig certification was introduced in June 2016. Lately this year, on March 30th, we introduced the Symfony 4 certification.
