Hi Kamrul,

 

I am sorry for the late response. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to share all the details about the test in order to protect its integrity. However, we have a lot of information about the certification and testing process for various categories in this help article. Once invited, this certification is free of charge.

 

Thank you,

~ Nikola

A skill assessment certification that is offered to a select few by invitation?  This makes absolutely no sense. So UpWork decides who get to have the advantage? 

 

That is not any equal opportunity. Why is this not available to all Freelancers?

Hi Michael,

 

Thanks for sharing your feedback. Skill Certification is a new program and it is only available by invite at the moment. While currently we have 10 skill certifications in the Web  & Mobile Software Development and 16 in Design & Creative categories, we hope to expand skill certifications to other categories in the future. New freelancers can also be invited to apply for the skills certification. For the best chance of being invited in the future,  we suggest freelancers achieve a solid reputation, keep a complete and up-to-date profile that is not set to private, and maintain an active Upwork account in good standing.

Hi Tamim,

 

Thanks for asking. I can confirm the test is PHP Back-end-related only. We're working to update the Help article to make this clear.

Hi Nitin,

 

At this time you cannot request to be invited. For the best chance of being invited in the future,  we suggest freelancers achieve a solid reputation, keep a complete and up-to-date profile that is not set to private, and maintain an active Upwork account in good standing. 

 
Thank you.
