GitLab offers two class options to prepare for certification, although neither is required in order to take the exam:

  1. Instructor-led: Fill out the form below or contact your GitLab sales representative to schedule an instructor-led delivery of GitLab Project Management training for your team.
  2. Self-service: You can enroll in our self-paced option to complete your certification in GitLab Level Up.

Certification Exam

The GitLab Certified Project Management Associate exam is available for anyone to purchase and take, regardless of whether they have participated in instructor-led GitLab training, self-service GitLab training, or neither. To earn certification, candidates must first pass a written assessment, followed by a hands-on lab assessment graded by GitLab Professional Services engineers.

Certification Name Change

As of July 27th, the name of this certification changed from GitLab Certified Project Management Specialist to GitLab Certified Project Management Associate. We will be offering a series of more advanced certifications in the coming months for those who are interested in continuing to level up their skills in this area.
