Yes, It’s Happening — Salesforce Certification Maintenance Is Moving to Trailhead!

As announced at TrailheaDX earlier this year, the time has finally arrived. Because we want to make all of your learning and credentialing easy to access from one central platform, maintaining your credentials has just gotten a whole lot simpler with the power of Trailhead.

Maintenance will be FREE

Yes, you heard right. Beginning with the Summer ’18 release cycle, all certification maintenance exams on Trailhead will be free! You’ll no longer need to register and pay for these maintenance exams.

Don’t forget! It’s now one release cycle…

The Certified Administrator, Certified Platform App Builder, and Certified Platform Developer I maintenance exams will now need to be completed within one release cycle. This means the Summer ’18 release maintenance exams launching on Trailhead will be due by the end of the Summer ’18 release cycle (that is, before the launch of the Winter ’19 release).

The time is now

Don’t get caught short — you don’t want to lose your hard-earned credential! If you’re unsure about your due dates or required release exams, you can always request the status of your credential.

Happy trails!
