Professional certifications through Codecademy are certificates provided after you pass all of the exams within your Career Path (this is only offered on certain Career Paths at this time, list can be found here). Exams assess your knowledge of the learning standards in each section and a Codecademy professional certification verifies proficiency so you can feel confident in your knowledge. These certifications are only available for Career Paths at this time.
You will not receive a certificate from completing just one exam in the Path, you will need to pass all of the exams in the Career Path to receive this type of certification.
Unlike the Certificate of Completion, the professional certification from Codecademy verifies that you’ve demonstrated technical proficiency against the learning standards defined in the Career path.
Once rewarded, you will be able to add your full name to the certificate directly. You will be able to access and download your certificate at any time on your My Profile page (accessed by clicking your avatar). To save a certificate as a PDF, visit your profile page and select "View Certificate" and "Print". Once there, please use this guide to help you figure out how to save as a PDF, depending on your browser.
Professional certifications from Codecademy are taking the place of certificates of completion for the Career Paths. If you would still like to receive a certificate of completion (for achieving 100% progress), please contact support. Our support team is happy to grant you a certificate of completion.
