Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer PLUS exam

magento2 certified professional developer plus

Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer Plus. It’s aimed at developers and architects with at least two years of experience with Magento 2, so it’s a higher level than the Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer certification.

This exam is for a senior Magento 2 developer/architect with 2 years of experience in customizing different areas of Magento Commerce, leading team(s) of Magento developers, leading projects, making key technical decisions on a Magento project, and working with customers to build project requirements.

Which is the target group of the Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer Plus exam?

The certifcation is supposed to prove that the certified person has sufficient experience with developing and architecting Magento 2. It is officially aimed at senior developers and architects with at least 2 years of experience with the development of Magento 2 projects. In my opinion, you will need more than that amount of hands-on experience, 3 years would be more realistic in most cases.

To pass the exam, you need to have a comprehensive knowledge of Magento: Frontend, Backend, and APIs. It covers everything which has to do with PHP and XML in Magento 2. Contrary to the Professional Developer exam, there are also a few JavaScript questions. It also adds questions which are specific to the Commerce edition of Magento (my estimation: about 25% of the questions are related to Magento Commerce).

What are the contents of the exam?

It’s impossible to list all fields here. Let me try to list the most important areas:

  • EAV
  • Dependency Injection
  • UI Components in Adminhtml area
  • UI Components in Checkout
  • Frontend Layout and Blocks
  • Content Staging
  • Shipping and Payment Methods


  • 60 multiple choice questions
  • 90 minutes to complete the exam
  • 62% or higher needed to pass

The Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer PLUS exam is an effective way to prove that you are a very experienced Magento 2 developer. Only very few people have passed it until now, and probably only few will do in the future, so you are standing out if you manage to pass the exam. The exam is hard, but fair, and can only be passed with a lot of experience in Magento 2 development.
