The XML Certification requires skills in XML, XML DOM and XSLT.

The XML Developer Certificate

XML is used in many aspects of web development, often to simplify data storage and data sharing. XML is the most common tool for data-transmissions between all sorts of applications.

The XML DOM (XML Document Object Model) defines a standard way for accessing and manipulating XML documents.

XSLT is the style sheet language of XML.

The XML Developer Certificate proves fundamental knowledge of web development using XML, XML DOM and XSLT.

Candidates must have 75% correct answers to pass the exam and become certified.

Candidates who have more than 95% correct answers will get an Excellency Degree notation added to their certificate.

Your 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.
