Maintain your Atlassian Certification

Outline

Atlassian Certifications are valid for 24 months.

To keep your Certification active, simply earn a related Atlassian Pro Skills Badge before the suspension date. Adding a Pro Skills Badge will extend your Certification for 24 months from the activity completion date.

There are two types of Pro Skills Badges:

  • APB: Earned by passing an online-proctored exam from your home or office. The exam is based on a recommended Atlassian University training course. You can purchase vouchers here.

  • ASB: Earned by taking a free Skillbuilder course. To complete the requirements, you must pass an online assessment based on the course. You can purchase vouchers here.

To keep all your Pro Skills Badges active, simply earn a new one every 24 months.
