Core Certification to Advanced Certification


Hi all,


I was hoping to get a sense of how long everyone waited to take the advanced exam after they passed the core certification.  Did you find it helpful to wait?  Or to just take it and see where you were at and where you needed to improve?   I passed core (just barely :-), and try to do a weekly challenge once a day to learn new tools and improve my skills but wasn't sure of the best approach.

First of all, passing is passing.  Secondly, I suggest taking all of the Interactive Training courses first.  They are very helpful and informative.  If you focus on the spatial tools, you'll avoid losing points.  There are practical challenges to solve on this test.  You'll need to be able to build at least one macro.  I'd take the training classes and potentially see if someone (or the whole user group) would like to team with you as a study partner.


Take the test and see where you need to sharpen your saw.






P.S.  I know ACEs that took the test more than once.  I even captured one such event at Inspire.

Chaos reigns within. Repent, reflect and reboot. Order shall return.

Thanks, I was very pleasantly surprised to pass, I only intended on testing to see where I was at.  I did the Interactive Training courses once already; but based on what you said I think I'm going to review the Spatial/Macro portions.  Can't hurt anyway!

Will be taking the Advanced Cert soon. Much appreciated, @MarqueeCrew.


Thanks @MarqueeCrew  for the suggestions. I passed my Advance Certification this week.
