Marketo University is pleased to announce the addition of 7 new training modules, bringing our total available training modules to 20. These modules are available for free to employees, partners and customers. The new training modules are available on Marketo’s web site at:


The New Marketo University

Marketers now have access to free, self-paced training modules from Marketo University, which cover everything from setting up a Marketo instance to building engaging content. These training modules are designed to provide foundational knowledge covering all core aspects of the engagement platform.  More than 40 training modules are planned for release by the end of 2017.


Each training module typically contains four core components to help any marketer, regardless of background or skill level, learn engagement marketing concepts and see how they are executed through the Marketo Engagement Platform. These components include:

  • A LEARN video to introduce the concept, what it is, why it’s important, and key considerations for success.
  • A WATCH video that provides instructions on how to approach and execute the topic within the Marketo Engagement Platform.
  • DO resources, which provide step-by-step written instructions on how to accomplish tasks in Marketo.
  • A CHECK assessment, which is a short quiz to assess whether someone has learned the core concepts of the training module.


Marketo’s instructor-led courses, which offer deep-dive and hands-on training in the Marketo Engagement Platform, will still be available through Marketo University for a fee, as will the Marketo Certified Expert Exam. Newly added Marketo Specializations are also available to certified experts to extend their Marketo certification.

Get Ready!

Get ready to become a Marketo Certified Expert and discover new opportunities for career growth and advancement. During a recent certification webinar, Inga Romanoff shared salary data that validated the value of Marketo certification.  Research shows that 34% of Marketo Certified Experts typically make over 125K, compared to only 14% non-MCE Marketo users.  

Quite a few attendees from the August 24th webinar wanted to know how to get ready for Marketo Certification.  Here are a few preparation tips for both the MCE exam and Specializations.

Now that you know how to prepare for the exam, let’s review eligibility requirements.  

If you achieved your MCE in 2016 you will be required to maintain your certification in 2017.

If you received your MCE designation by taking the 2017 exam, you will be required to maintain your credential every two years. 

Marketo recommends the following prerequisite knowledge prior to taking the MCE exam:

  • 1-2 years general marketing experience

  • 1+ years (800 – 1000+ hours) hands on experience using Marketo
