OpenJS Node.js Certification Exams Now Available in Chinese

By July 31, 2020Blog, Certification, Node.js

We are thrilled to share that the OpenJS Node.js Application Developer (JSNAD) and OpenJS Node.js Services Developer (JSNSD) certification exams are now available in Chinese! 

China holds one of the largest populations of Node.js users in the world and the newly translated exams broadens the availability of these certifications internationally. We are pleased to announce that the two virtual exams have been translated into Chinese, and are now available, along with a native-speaking proctor.

Launched in October 2019 by the Linux Foundation and the OpenJS Foundation, the Node.js certification exams have become a highly sought after credential for web application and services developers around the world. For developers looking to showcase their own skill sets this performance-based, verifiable certification exam helps instill confidence and provides a straightforward way for potential employers to validate that a candidate possesses the necessary skills to be successful. 

The JSNAD certification is designed for anyone looking to demonstrate competence with Node.js to create applications of any kind, with a focus on knowledge of Node.js core APIs. The JSNSD certification is designed for anyone looking to demonstrate competence in creating RESTful Node.js Servers and Services (or Microservices) with a particular emphasis on security practices. Both exams are conducted online with remote proctoring, take two hours to complete, and are performance-based, meaning test takers perform tasks and solve problems in real-world situations. 

The exam content was developed in partnership with NearForm and NodeSource. The OpenJS Foundation would like to offer thanks to Khaidi Chu, a Node.js project collaborator from the Node.js infrastructure team at Alibaba who helped with the translations. 

We also offer a prep course for the JSNAD exam, although this is currently only in English. A bundle of the English course and Chinese JSNAD exam is available.
