Availability: In Stock


Developed in consultation with interaction designers and electronic engineering professionals, the Arduino Fundamentals Certification exam assesses skills based upon exercises composed of practical tasks from the Arduino Starter Kit Single or Arduino Starter Kit Classroom Pack. Now, you can officially certify your knowledge of Arduino in the field of programming and electronics.

To obtain the certificate, you must answer 36 questions over a period of 75 minutes.

During the exam, you will encounter questions that test your knowledge in relation to the following eight main categories:

  1. Electricity: Understanding the concepts such as resistance, voltage, power, and capacitance and being able to measure and calculate them.

  2. Reading circuits and schematics: Understanding how electronics are represented visually and the being able to read and analyze electronic circuits.

  3. Arduino Software (IDE): Understanding the functionality of the Arduino development environment, serial communication, libraries, and errors.

  4. Arduino boards: Understanding the constitution and capabilities of an Arduino board and the functions of its different parts.

  5. Frequency and duty cycle: Understanding the concepts of pulse-width modulation (PWM) and frequency and being able to calculate duty cycle.

  6. Electronic components: Understanding how various electronic components such as LEDs, sensors, buttons, and motors work and how to use them in a circuit.

  7. Programming syntax and semantics: Understanding the building blocks of the Arduino programming language such as functions, arguments, variables, and loops.

  8. Programming logic: Ability to program various electronic components, read, analyze, and troubleshoot Arduino code.

The certification will ship as printed card that includes the exam activation code. The activation code can be used to unlock one (1) attempt at the Arduino Fundamentals exam. When you receive the code, you and have six months to redeem it. After the code has been redeemed, you have one year to activate the exam, otherwise the code will become invalid.
