Last month, HashiCorp announced two certifications. One is for Terraform and the other for Vault. Let’s focus on Terraform, one of the fist and largest Infrastructure as Code (IaC) software providers out there. I am very excited about this method of validating my understanding and experience. For the Terraform exam, there are 9 objectives.

Both exams are Associate level, but since there is no equivalent exam for these products it’s basically the only way to ‘proof’ that you are familiar with the products HashiCorp is offering and many, many companies are using today. For a professional freelancer active in Linux infrastructure Solutions like myself it’s almost a must.

On the website all objectives can be found linking to the content you need to be familiar with. A good way to start learning. The HashiCorp exams will be taken proctored online. Price and availability yet to be announced.
