This page is an overview of the CommCare Certification Program for anyone who is interested in learning more about how to use CommCare, wants to follow one of the learning tracks, or become Certified in one of the CommCare roles.

What are Learning Tracks?

There is a lot to learn about CommCare and the Help Site  has tons of information - which is great, but can be very confusing navigate. We have organized learning CommCare into focus modules on topics like Form Building, and Mobile Worker Management, and organized them into different tracks that build to more complex tasks.

What is Certification

At Dimagi, CommCare Certification refers to expertise at different aspects of using CommCare software and managing CommCare deployments. The program can be useful simply to guide you in what areas to learn about, and if you want to really demonstrate complete knowledge of a particular topic you can become "certified" by passing all of the tests associated with one of the certification tracks.

Certification Process

There are three main stages to the Certification process

A - Figuring out what to learn

There are a lot of components to CommCare and depending upon your role in a project you may require a specific combination.

You can decide what you want learn by exploring individual modules, or by taking the assessment  **NEED TO DEVELOP THIS**

If in doubt, we recommend you start with CommCare Fundamentals.

B - Learning and Practice

There are two main ways you can learn what you're interested in:

1. CommCare Community Resources

There are a lot of freely available tools to learn about CommCare.

  • Help Site - the CommCare Module Guide will help you find all the information you need on the help site
  • CommCare Users Group
  • Webinars
2. Dimagi Services

Dimagi's Global Services team has implemented 100s of CommCare projects. There are a range of different capacity building and training packages available if you have a team that is eager for hands-on or project specific training.

C - Assessment

There are two stages of assessment.

1. Module Tests

If you want to test your knowledge, or validate the skills of a new colleague, there is a test available for each of the learning modules. The links to these tests are available in each of the module pages and are designed to ensure comprehension of the learning objectives. There is no charge to take these tests.

2. Capstone Exercises

Each of the certification tracks has a capstone exercise which will synthesize information across all of them and test your ability to apply them in complex situations.  These tests require working with a Dimagi field manager and are only available as part of a Dimagi service package at this time.
