This page is an overview of the CommCare Learning Tracks, and the CommCare Certification Program.
The information will be useful for anyone who is interested in learning more about how to use CommCare or wants to 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 a lot of information - which is great, but can be very confusing navigate.
We have organized CommCare learning resources into modules on topics like Form Building and Mobile Worker Management. You can think of each of these as a "course."
Those modules of information are then organized into different tracks that build to more complex tasks.
These tracks will guide you through a series of modules to get you to a specific skill-set.
Below is a list of all of the available learning modules. Click on the name in order to go to the page and access the complete list of knowledge points as well as a link to the test.

You can demonstrate complete knowledge of a particular CommCare by becoming "certified." This means you will have to pass all of the tests associated with a learning track.
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
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.
