Q: Select: What are my Certification options?


UiPath Certified Professional offers two (2) certifications:

 

1. UiPath RPA Associate Certification (UiRPA)

UiPath RPA Associate Certification is your first step in the RPA journey. It is designed to assess your knowledge and skills related to problem solving, processes, automation solutions with UiPath platform components such as UiPath Studio, Robots, and Orchestrator.

UiRPA Certification is suitable for anyone in a technical or semi-technical role who needs to work with the UiPath RPA platform such as RPA Developers, RPA Architects, Solution Architects, Business Analysts, and others.


2. UiPath Advanced RPA Developer Certification (UiARD)

UiPath Advanced RPA Developer Certification is targeted to assess a deeper level of knowledge and skills for designing and developing complex RPA solutions. A typical candidate for achieving this level is expected to have 6+ months of working experience in developing RPA solutions and is ready to work independently on complex automation projects.

The Associate (UiRPA) Certification is not a pre-requisite to achieve the Advanced (UiARD) Certification but is strongly recommended to prepare you for this exam level.

Each exam is accompanied by a detailed exam description. Each document gives you a list of exam subjects and topics in addition to other relevant information. Please be sure to review the relevant document thoroughly:
