Professional or second level exams are meant to verify true product expertise: specifically, that the individual certified can provide technical leadership on a project. This expertise can only be developed through significant experience using MuleSoft products on a variety of projects. The exam aims to ensure that each individual has: strong applicable development background; broad and deep knowledge of MuleSoft solutions and tools; and appreciable experience using MuleSoft solutions on multiple types of real or experimental projects.
You may find that some of our courses are helpful in preparing for Professional level exams, such as our Anypoint Platform Development: Advanced course, but really no course could provide the expertise or project experience needed to pass this challenging exam. We've found that successful certification candidates usually have at least 1-2 years of consistent project experience.
Each Professional level exam has a corresponding preparation guide, to help test takers understand what skills and knowledge are required to pass. The topics covered in a Professional exam are detailed in the preparation guide.
