Earning the Zend Framework certification should be a necessity to everyone who has experience working with the Zend Framework. The aim of the Zend certification program is not to create professionals or teach an entire set of skills vital to the workplace; instead, it is to validate the skills and knowledge already acquired by those who have held a technical job in a Zend environment.
Individuals have the chance to verify their skills and earn certification via a 75 question exam. Several components of Zend Framework will be covered extensively on this exam. All participants should be knowledgeable of the infrastructure, internationalization and authentication of the product. Performance optimization and security best practices skills will be verified. Information regarding Zend Forms and Mail will be touched, while Database components and Web services will also appear on the test. Most questions are application-based, requiring hands-on education for successful completion of this exam.
Training options are available to reinforce your knowledge and experience working with Framework. A study guide can be downloaded, with an account, directly from the Zend website. An online, teacher-led Zend Framework test preparation course can be taken. Webinars related to this product and certification can also be viewed.
