Google has introduced a new developer certification, costing $99. To earn a badge to display on your website or resume you need to pass an online exam and a post-exam interview. Successful candidates are also entered into a registry, which employers can check against.
Earlier this year we reported on a Mobile Sites Certification newly offered by Google and commented that it wasn't in the same league as the Associate Android Developer Certification, explaining that it was targeted at Google Partners, rather than developers.
Now Google has introduced "performance-based" developer certification for web developers along similar lines to the Android Developer certification and at Intermediate to advanced level. Although it is called Mobile Web Specialist, the skills it demonstrates can be used on the desktop and across all browsers, and it is being promoted as providing a way for you to:
set yourself apart from other web developers
as explained in this video:
In the performance based exam candidates have to write code to demonstrate skills in the following competency areas:
All of the competencies are described in detail in the Mobile Web Specialist Study Guide together with links to suggested web-based study resources.
As with the Android certification, the exam is online and when you are ready to take it you pay the fee (6500 INR if you live in India and $99 USD everywhere else). This includes up to three attempts of an exam that lasts 4 hours from the time you start it, which needs to be within 1 hour of the scheduled time you have chosen. Once you pass successfully there is a post-exam interview lasting 10 minutes and consisting of five questions about your work in the exam.
