Braze Learning Supports Laid-Off Community With Free Certifications

Inayah Lakhani By Inayah Lakhani Mar 13, 2023

Today, Braze Learning is excited to announce the launch of a support program to provide free certification exams to those that have been impacted by lay-offs and reductions in the tech sector.

In the latter half of 2022 and the beginning of 2023, US-based tech companies have laid off more than 200,000 workers. As a way to support those who have been impacted by layoffs and reductions, Braze will be providing a supportive upskilling program in which these impacted individuals may qualify for free or reduced certification exams.

Braze Certification has pledged to provide 1,000 free certification exams.

More About Braze Certification

Braze Certification is a competitive, industry-recognized certification program that has nearly 1,500 certified professionals across the world. The program offers five exams ranging from dashboard and front-end user exams to technical developer exams. Our test-takers have noticed an increase in confidence, recognition, and opportunities from being Braze Certified.

One of our certified professionals noted that “certification has also helped [him] gain credibility in the marketplace,” while another said about his team that “the certifications help our clients feel assured that we are experts at what we do and help us close deals faster.”

The Level 1 Exam, the Braze Certified Practitioner, provides a foundational lens into the suite of exams and allows an individual to show foundational knowledge in the platform. In order to prepare for this exam, we encourage you to complete the FREE Foundations for Everyone learning pathway, which should prepare you with introductory information on how to use Braze.

Becoming Braze Certified also grants you access to a community of Braze Certified Professionals via our private LinkedIn group.
