Guide to Certification Path

Hi Rangers,

I have been receiving a lot of queries, requesting me to guide on salesforce certification. So here I am ..... I’ll be sharing with you the entire process for applying for the exam.

Salesforce conducts its certification exam on webassessor online testing platform.

1.   Go to Webassessor Login page, Login to your account , if you don’t have a Webassessor account you will need to create one.  

2.   Once account is being created, you’ll get an email notifying the account has been created.

Login  >>>  you’ll land up on home page of web accessor.

3.   Make sure your profile is updated and is linked to your trailhead account. If not, then click on Edit profile on the right side of the screen.

4.   Now you will be able to register for one of the certification exams. Go to Register for an exam tab. Click on + icon of the category of exam you want to give.

5.   Say , you want to give Developer exams, once you click on + icon infront of developer exams, you’ll get a list of exams available in the Developer category. Register yourself for the desired certification. You’ll get two options for registering – Onsite Proctored (you’ll need to go to their exam centers and will have to give the exam under their supervision), Online Proctored (you can give the exam from your home , following the proper guidance).

6.   Now just choose a testing center to take the test and a date and time from the list of available dates. Important point to note here is that if you need to reschedule, you have to give 72 hrs notice, otherwise a reschedule fee is charged. So you need to decide 3 days before the scheduled date if you think you are ready and if not   reschedule !.

7.   Once you have received and paid, you will receive confirmation email with the payment receipt, along with the date and time.

     Finally, it’s done . You can check it on My assessment’s platform. Prepare yourself for the exam. Go through the mock tests and trailheads. For online proctored test, you’ll need to setup the Sentinel software in your laptop/PC. It will be better if you could complete the biometric a day before to avoid last minute hustle. It’s a mandatory activity which will take 15 to 25 minutes.

Hope this helped you !!!
Thank You!  Happy trailblazing
