How to keep your retired certification or credential up-to-date

Outline

When Atlassian University retires a Certification, we will try to provide clear upgrade pathways for you to earn a new Certification or credential. Sometimes, we change our credentials to meet changes in our products, and will grant new credentials automatically, as well.

If you hold an active, retired Certification see which upgrade pathway or granted credentials are available to you.
