Esri Technical Certification

The Esri Technical Certification Program endeavors to develop a community of qualified individuals proficient in the best practices of the ArcGIS Platform. Certification validates your skills and allows you to showcase your knowledge and experience with Esri software.

From our Explore Exams page, you can determine which exam best suits your skills and experience and review associated preparation materials.

Take an Exam

After selecting and exam and purchasing your voucher, you will need to register for your appointment by logging in or creating a new account. You will receive an email confirmation once the appointment is scheduled and the order is complete.

NOTE: Minor candidates may not sit for an Esri exam until they have received approval via email from Esri’s Technical Certification Program. To request minor candidate approval for an Esri exam, please follow the instructions within the Esri Technical Certification Program Agreement. The approval process can take up to 7-14 business days to complete.
