Atlassian Certified Master

Certification

Stand out among the best

Atlassian Certified Masters are respected for their broad Atlassian skills and the value they bring to organizations and teams. They demonstrate expertise at the highest level. There’s no better way to show your proficiency across Atlassian solutions than through this highly-regarded designation.

Upcoming Changes and Future Requirements

The Atlassian Certified Master credential will be changed in 2021. We’ll have a new name, and new requirements to ensure you’ll have opportunities to earn or keep this elite status after the 4 Server exams retire.

Earning and maintaining your designation

Earn

As soon as you meet all the requirements, you will be granted the designation.

Maintain
  • You will continue to hold the designation as long as you keep all your underlying Certifications in Active status.
  • If a Certification becomes Suspended, make sure to maintain/extend it before the Expiration date.
  • Pay careful attention to the Retirement Dates of any Certifications you hold, as future retirements are likely to affect your designation.
changing requirements

Requirements for holding the Atlassian Certified Master credential are subject to change as new credentials are released and other credentials are permanently retired by Atlassian.
