The Alfresco Process Services Certified Engineer (APSCE) it’s a new certification intended to prove experience and knowledge in the Process Services area (Activiti Enterprise). The certification has been recently released and currently, it’s hard to find a good guideline to prepare yourself for the exam. – Unless that you go through an official training.

Indeed, the main obstacle in getting ready for the test is the lack of material on the Internet. That’s why we want to share the guideline that we prepared for ourselves, to help other people and save them a LOT OF TIME.

You might wonder if this certification could be worth it to invest your money and time, or useful and relevant to undertake successfully an APS project. Those questions are fair enough and, in our personal opinion, the answer would be absolutely YES.

Having this certification, will give you a strategical advantage and more important, it will provide your organization and your clients with confidence that their projects are in good hands, and it will help you to build a trustworthy reputation in the Alfresco industry.

We passed the exam and got the certification thanks to this guideline. If you want to get it too, we recommend you to follow the next steps:
