Collaboration Solutions certification is pleased to announce the availability of the above certifications and the corresponding tests.
Due to product complexity, the volume of information which needs to be covered for this job role is too great to fit into one exam so there are two core tests for the Portal administrator. As a result, Collaboration Solutions Certification also published an upgrade test so that professionals who are certified on the most recent release prior to version 8.0 are only tested on the new features. Administrators who have not certified on Portal 7.0 will need to take both tests in order to attain certification.
The paths available for IBM Certified System Administrator - WebSphere Portal 8.0:
|Those certified on Portal 7.0 must:||Pass LOT-929: IBM WebSphere Portal 8.0 Deployment and Administration Update|
|Those not certified on Portal or certified on release 6.1 or earlier:||Pass
LOT-923: IBM WebSphere Portal 8.0 Deployment and Administration
and LOT-924: IBM WebSphere Portal 8.0 Migration and Support

System Administrators wanting to achieve certification in Portal 8 can take both core exams for the price of one. Click on the banner at top of page for more information.
