Salesforce.com Certification Maintenance Fees Explained [FAQ]

There seems to be quite a bit of confusion surround the maintenance fees for certified professionals.  I was having a hard time understanding the fee schedule myself, so I asked for clarification.  Here’s what I learned:

You will be charged $100 per year per certification track you maintain.  Maintenance fees start one year (or 3 releases) after your first achieved certification within that track.  There are 2 tracks:

Administrator (entails Administrator, Advanced Administrator, and Consultant)

Developer (entails Developer, Advanced Developer)

In short, the maximum amount you will be charged per year is $200 for certification maintenance, although each track may be billed at different periods.

Hope this clarifies for those with any remaining questions.  Cheers,

John

Developer Exam Notes Posted

Posted December 1st, 2009 in Certified Developer by John Coppedge

I passed the developer exam a little over a month ago, and have finally gotten around to posting my notes.  These notes can serve as a great supplement to the 401 podcast.  The exam itself is pretty straightforward, more situation-based than the admin exam, and there is definitely overlapping subject matter between the two.  Good luck!  Drop me a line with any thoughts/comments.
