Technology is evolving.

Your career can too.

As Salesforce evolves, you need ways to better differentiate between declarative and programmatic development skills. Salesforce University now offers three certifications in place of our Force.com credentials that do just that: Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I, Salesforce Certified Platform Developer II, and Salesforce Certified Platform App Builder. Our Force.com credentials will begin retiring in July of 2017, so choose the best transition option for you. The retirement process for these credentials will be complete as of March 30, 2018.
