    cPanel announced details for its new certification program, aptly called cPanel University, or cPU.

    source article can be found here


    On September 19, 2011, cPanel announced details for its new certification program, aptly named cPanel University, or cPU. cPanel spent the last 12 months evaluating, training, and certifying tests for the program.

    cPanel created the certification program to create a highly credible examination and training process that would allow employers and employees to accurately gauge their respective cPanel skill levels.

    cPanel University will officially launch this October at cPanel Conference in Austin,Texas. The debut will include a full walkthrough of the program requirements, live tests and feedback from customers and partners.

    "cPanel University will challenge the skills of those taking the exams, and reward those who pass with the confidence of knowing they have a solid understanding of cPanel’s software" said Technical Product Specialist David Grega, one of the designers of cPanel University.

    The cPanel Certification process comprises two programs: sales and technical. The technical certification program consists of seven levels while the sales program has 10 levels. The first three levels of each program will be publicly available to all registered cPanel Conference attendees. Enrollees will be able to schedule onsite testing. Additional training for advanced skills will be made available in various locations around the globe, at the corporate offices and at future cPanel Conferences beginning the first quarter of 2012.

    The final four technical and six sales tests will be available at a later date and will only support live, in-person testing.

    .....please find the full story here.

    What are the official certification titles?

    How do you earn the certification without attending the conference?

    When will complete details be available?

    Jerald appreciate the inquiries.

    At this time we are still working out some of the logistics for the upcoming launch at the cPanel Conference. Once we have more information we will share it with everyone here.

    Once the conference has taken place we will be able to provide more information.

    Some of the testing will be made available online, we have not worked out all the details at this time however we are working on this. David will be updating with more information as we develop it.

    In the meantime you can prepare for it by visiting here.

    Why can't you start tech course and sales the same day or is it not possible at all?

    You can take a tech exam and sales exam on the same day, there is nothing preventing that.

    Just wondering, after you've completed an exam you're supposed to get the certificate via mail and a PDF if I've read this correctly. About how long does it take to get the PDF? I completed the technical course last night, but got nothing after that. No email confirming my passing grade, nothing letting me know when I can expect to receive the certificate, and so on.

    Thanks, that answers that. How about the PDF? How do I get that? :)

    Per the CPanel University site:

    Yes, successful exam completion will include a professional printed certificate that's also available via PDF.
