JP Souchak introduces the Associate Android Developer (AAD) Certification by Google. The AAD Certification is intended for developers who can display typical skills of an entry-level Android developer. By earning the AAD Certification, developers can get recognized for their skills and advance their careers.
There are several steps in the process towards becoming an AAD: determining if you are ready, getting training if necessary, and then signing up and taking the exam. When you sign up for the exam, you pay a certification fee, download the exam, and work on it in Android Studio. The exam is a performance-based exam in which you will be asked to write and debug code.
After you are finished with the exam, you will upload it and it will be reviewed through a combination of machine and human grading. If you pass the exam, you move on to the Exit Interview. When you’ve passed both the exam and the Exit Interview, you will receive a digital badge that you can share with employers, on your resume, LinkedIn, Twitter, G+, and in your email signature.
