Did you hear the big news? Earlier this month, Contentful leaders and experts came together to unveil our latest and greatest product updates. The upshot is that the three pillars of Contentful Platform, Contentful Studio, and Contentful Ecosystem promise to revolutionize how teams connect content, workflows and tools — and drive digital innovation at scale.
And as Contentful continues to evolve, so too does the Learning Center. We recognize the importance of continued training and education so that our users can make the most out of the innovations we’ve launched this season. We’re affirming one of our core company values, which is to start with the customer and work backwards.
To that end, we’re thrilled to introduce a refreshed and updated Learning Center, packed with new features that'll empower you to elevate your skills and knowledge. We’re rolling out an enhanced user experience and navigation, core training is now free for all users, and there’s also an improved certification program. Let’s dive into the details together.
Enhanced user experience and navigation
As a first step, we understand that navigating a learning platform is essential to make your education track as smooth as possible. Is your learning goal aimed at onboarding? Or is it professional certification? What are the needs of individuals in your team? We've made a series of user experience enhancements to specifically address questions like these.
Clearer guidance for onboarding or certification
Whether you've arrived at the Learning Center to get up to speed with Contentful, or aiming to earn a Contentful Certification to showcase your skills, our redesigned Learning Center now features two distinct calls to action on the landing page to help you start your learning journey and track your progress more efficiently. Choose between “Contentful Basics” or “Certification” and away you go.
Catering to diverse needs
In the dynamic landscape of digital teams — whether you're a developer, marketer, designer, or content editor — we've curated learning courses and resources tailored to your unique challenges and objectives. We are dedicated to continually expanding our offerings, ensuring that digital teams from all these diverse personas find the resources they've come to expect.
Core training now free for everyone
We’re making our learning services more widely available and accessible. At Contentful, we’re on a mission to empower digital teams to unlock the full potential of their content.
Equipping our customers with the skills they need to achieve their business goals is our top priority, and we’re excited to introduce Contentful Basics, a series of free live webinar-style classes focusing on foundational learning.
Stay tuned for the initial releases in our Contentful Basics series: "Get Started," "Intro to Authoring," and "Intro to Modeling," set to debut in October and November and we’ll continue to offer a broader range of courses free of charge, with more sessions than ever before.
Our seasoned instructors are experts in their fields, ready to share their insights and expertise with you. Be sure to check our Live Training schedule regularly for newly added classes in your time zone. Save your spot or join a waiting list for each course.
Improved certification program
What better way to demonstrate your expertise in Contentful than by obtaining a Contentful Professional Certification?
Achieving certification not only validates your Contentful skills but also allows you to share your accomplishment with the broader community. As a Contentful Certified Professional, you can become a driving force within your organization, influencing digital transformation as well as join a community of Contentful Certified Professionals.
Here’s a tip. If you’ve already gone through our learning paths for onboarding, you’re well on your way to having the knowledge to become Contentful certified.
We understand that becoming a Contentful expert is a significant milestone, so we've enhanced the certification program to help you prove your skills to the world.
Updated exam: We have meticulously reviewed every question to ensure that certified professionals are well prepared to tackle real-world challenges effectively.
Preparation materials: We've put together a comprehensive Learning Path to assist you in acing your certification exam. Start here to conquer the exam on your first try.
Sample questions: We provide a set of sample questions that closely resemble those in the actual exam. This hands-on practice will make you well acquainted with the question formats.
Who else would find certification valuable? If you manage a Contentful implementation team, encouraging your team members to become certified will drive more Contentful learning and give you increased confidence that you’ll successfully achieve your goals with Contentful.
For Contentful partners, having Contentful Certified Professionals on staff increases your ability to deliver successful Contentful engagements. It also helps you win new business by showing prospective clients that you have Contentful skills on your team.
The enhanced Learning Center is our commitment to supporting our customers in unlocking the power of digital content. With clearer guidance, free core training workshops, and an improved certification program, we're here to support your learning journey at every step.
