The PHP Certification requires skills in PHP and SQL (MySQL).


The PHP Developer Certificate

PHP is a powerful server-side scripting language for creating dynamic and interactive websites. PHP is the widely-used, free, and efficient alternative to competitors such as Microsoft's ASP.

PHP is perfectly suited for Web development and can be embedded directly into the HTML code.

SQL (Structured Query Language) is an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standard for accessing database systems. SQL statements are used to retrieve and update data in a database.

By mastering these subjects you will be able to develop and maintain dynamic and interactive web pages and also retrieve and update data from a database over the internet.

The PHP Developer Certificate proves fundamental knowledge of web development using PHP and SQL (MySQL).

The Supervisor

To add full credibility to your Certificate, you should have a supervisor to watch over you when taking the exam.

You must pick your own supervisor.

The supervisor should be used to see that you do not cheat. There are no other special criteria for the supervisor.

The supervisor's name and title will be printed on the certificate, so it could be wise to pick a supervisor who will add credibility to your certificate (e.g. your boss or teacher).

When you receive the hardcopy of the Certificate, you should ask for a signature from your supervisor.
