The OpenJS Node.js certification exam has been updated with new content today to reflect the latest current, long-term support (LTS) version of Node.js 16, which was released two weeks ago. The certification is ideal for the intermediate Node.js developer looking to establish their credibility and value in their career.
The testing content broadly covers competence with Node.js to create applications of any kind, with a focus on knowledge of Node.js core API’s.
The exams have been updated based on an evaluation of all recent additions to Node.js core APIs, the evolution of the Node.js ecosystem, and continual tracking of industry standards. As a result, candidates will see a few exam questions have been either removed and added within relevant topic areas without increasing exam duration.
These exams are evergreen and soon after Node.js updates its LTS version line, the certifications are updated to stay in lockstep with that LTS version. Now that Node.js 14 has moved into maintenance, certifications will be based on Node.js 16.
To see what’s new in Node.js 16, check out the Node.js blog by Bethany Griggs, with additional contributions from the Node.js Technical Steering Committee.
The OpenJS Node.js Certification program was developed over time with community input, and launched two years ago in partnership with NearForm and NodeSource.
