To earn certification, candidates must first earn 6 underlying certifications:
In November 2021, GitLab relaunched the GitLab PSE Specialist Certification. The certification assessments are currently available to GitLab Team Members and Partners, both of which will have access to the course material via the GitLab Learn platform. The course assessments are built into the learning pathway on GitLab Learn. The hands on assessment instructions are linked from the learning pathway and graded in less than 10 business days from submission.
With GitLab PSE Specialist certification, Partners now have a way to confirm their team members possess the skills needed to effectively deploy the GitLab Platform, migrate data to GitLab and provide workflow advisory services for customers. This certification is the first step for partners to qualify as subcontractors to be able to deliver services sold by GitLab. This certification satisfies the PSE requirement for the GitLab Certified Professional Services Partner certification.
Individuals who earn GitLab PSE Specialist certification can showcase their ability to effectively deploy GitLab, migrate data, and provide workflow advisory services for customers. This certification follows the individual, regardless if the individual still works at the compnay under which they earned the certification.
