Officially certify your knowledge of Arduino in the field of programming and electronics by taking the Arduino Fundamentals exam.

  • Overview
  • Tech Specs
  • The Arduino Fundamentals exam + kit bundle includes an Arduino Starter Kit and access to the certification exam.
    Developed in consultation with interaction designers and electronic engineering professionals as well as in regards to leading technology curriculum, the Arduino Fundamentals Certification exam assesses skills based upon exercises comprised of practical tasks from the Arduino Starter Kit.
    To obtain the certificate, you will be requested to answer 36 questions over a period of 75 minutes.

    Purchasing the exam alone costs $30, and grants 1 attempt at the Arduino Fundamentals exam

    (Available worldwide except Brazil)

    Once the code has been redeemed, you have one year to activate the exam, otherwise the code will become invalid.

    Exam available in English, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese. 
    You can try the demo to have a closer look at how the exam will be.
