To end 2020 on a positive note, we are happy to announce a free gift for all Vaadin developers. We are unlocking all our online training courses and certification exams, and making them available for everybody for free. All registered users of our website can now access our previously-paid training material. The current and upcoming video courses are a great addition to the text tutorials available in our Learning Center.

Become a certified Vaadin professional
Currently, for each LTS version of Vaadin (8, 10 and 14) the Foundations and Professional tracks offer certification. To earn your certification, you need to pass the corresponding online exam. The exam must be completed within a specified time and you need at least 60% (of the maximum points) to pass. Each question in the exam is worth one point. Most questions are multi-select questions and you need to select all correct options to earn the point.
