Thank you for your email!
We are happy to see you are interested in our certification program.
In the exam descriptions, you can see what you need to study to prepare for it and decide what exam is best for you. Please note that the 2 exams imply a different level of skills and knowledge and – for the time being – it’s not mandatory to take them in any order, although we do recommend to take the Associate first. The exams no longer include a practical file submission, they include questions such as Multiple Choice, Drag and Drop and Simulation Based.

Hope this is clear, if not – looking forward to hearing from you.
