Exam Topics


ACP exams are intended to be challenging – increase your chances of success with careful preparation!

  • Download the Exam Topics and evaluate your readiness. 
  • Get hands-on practice across all the topics, paying particular attention to functionalities you work with less often.
  • Consult the Atlassian product documentation to learn about the nuances of each topic that you may be unfamiliar with.
  • If you typically use a localized product, use the English version to prepare for the exam, so that you'll be familiar with the names of menu options and other product features.
  • Be sure you have a high-level awareness of how to work with the Jira Administrator to configure Jira for your team's needs.
Training Courses

If you're just getting started, training courses from Atlassian are an excellent way to begin. These Atlassian University courses provide the foundation for using Jira Software.  Build on this foundation with experience before graduating to the Exam Prep course.

Exam Preparation

The Certification Prep course is for experienced Agile practitioners.

The course includes an in-depth explanation of what to expect on the exam, technical lectures across the exam topics, sample exam questions, case studies and 24 hours of consecutive access to a Jira Server virtual environment.
