PHP Certification

Previous Next

The PHP Certification requires skills in PHP and SQL (MySQL).

The PHP Developer Certificate

PHP is a powerful server-side scripting language for creating dynamic and interactive websites. PHP is the widely-used, free, and efficient alternative to competitors such as Microsoft's ASP.

PHP is perfectly suited for Web development and can be embedded directly into the HTML code.

SQL (Structured Query Language) is an ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standard for accessing database systems. SQL statements are used to retrieve and update data in a database.

By mastering these subjects you will be able to develop and maintain dynamic and interactive web pages and also retrieve and update data from a database over the internet.

The PHP Developer Certificate proves fundamental knowledge of web development using PHP and SQL (MySQL).

The PHP Exam

The PHP exam will be taken over the Internet, at any time and from any location, but the exam should be supervised by a person selected by the exam candidate.

The exam consists of 70 multiple choice or true/false questions. The exam is time-limited to 70 minutes.

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.

Excellency Degree example

Immediately after completing the exam, you will be informed of your score and of your pass/fail status. If you achieve certification status, W3Schools will ship you an PHP Developer Certificate. The document will contain your personal data acknowledging your status as a Certified PHP Developer.

If you have any questions regarding the exam, do not hesitate to send an email to:

The 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.

Registration And Payment

To register for a PHP exam, you must register with your email address.

When you register, an account will be activated within two working days, and you will receive an email with instructions about how to log in to your account.

You can log in to your account at any time, but you must take your exam within two months after you registered.

The price for the exam is $59 (U.S.) - payable with PayPal or a valid credit card at the time you register.
