Sitecore 10 Certification Guide

Preparing for Sitecore 10 Certification

March 23rd, 2022

I recently updated my Sitecore certification to Sitecore 10. A few of my colleagues have asked how this certification was different to those in the past. In this blog, I will cover what is in the exam and what I did to prepare. A quick background – I have been working with Sitecore for 10+ years and took the certification for Sitecore 9 last year as well.


For experienced developers.

·        About 80%-90% of questions are from the Developer’s Fundamentals 9.3 Collection

·        Developer’s Fundamentals 10.0 Collection covers the rest: ASP.NET core, Sitecore Serialization, containers

·        If you've been working with Sitecore for a while now, you can most likely skim through the majority of course material, but I found the practice quizzes to be extremely helpful

·        Difficulty of the questions are similar to the quizzes

·        Although I had working experience on Sitecore 10, I feel the e-learning covers the material adequately.


Take the e-learning course at For developers who are working with a Sitecore partner, the courses are free. Make sure you log in with your work email. There may be a price at the start, but once you check out, it is free.

1.      Developer’s Fundamentals 9.3 Collection

2.      Developer's Fundamentals 10 Collection

I found that the above covers the majority, if not, the entire exam. I did not find I have to do any supplemental studying.

You do not have to answer questions in order; You can flag them and come back later. I would recommend using this feature as to not get stuck on one single question and not having time to go through the rest. I heavily utilized this feature. If there were any questions that I had to think about for more than a few seconds, I skipped and flag for review. Having said that, I found there were plenty of time as I only used about 50 min of the allotted 100min.

Good luck with your certification!
