Program Resources:  

To support your certification journey, we have curated comprehensive sets of resources, including study materials, practice exams, online courses, and reference guides.   

 

We’ll be sharing these out in weekly/ bi-weekly playbooks of resources toward moving up the learning ladder, across the different Adobe Certification tiers, Adobe Marketo Engage:

 

 

Mentorship Process:  

  1. Registration: To join the Mentorship Program, please complete either the Aspirant or Mentor form. Each form will ask for your preferred area of certification, your current skill level, and any specific Mentor-preferences you may have. This will help us match you with the most suitable available Mentor for your appropriate certification needs.  
  2. Mentors x Aspirants: Connect & Kick Off Call ~ Our team will carefully review the registration forms and pair/group Mentors and Aspirants based on their areas of expertise, availability, and compatibility. We strive to create mutually beneficial connections that promote effective learning and guidance.  
  3. Kick off Call: Once the Mentors and Aspirants have been finalized, we will arrange an initial meeting to facilitate introductions and establish expectations. During this meeting, Mentors will discuss the certification process, provide guidance on study plans, and share insights based on their own experiences.  
  4. Ongoing Mentorship: Following the initial meeting, Mentors will be given dedicated contextual threads in the Community, where Aspirants can reach out to connect with them regularly for guidance on their Adobe Marketo Engage certification exams, as well as on practical applications of Adobe Marketo Engage. This can look like anything from Q&A discussions and mock exams, to feedback on study progress and words of encouragement.  
    1. During the Mentorship Program, we’ll gauge levels of engagement:  
      1. Mentors’ Levels of Engagement, determined by:  Number of Aspirants (from their team) clearing the certification exams, as well as blog content for personal branding, if authored.   
      2. Aspirants’ Level of Engagement, determined by: Certification passed, as well as Community engagements in terms of accepted solutions, posts, and kudos.  
  5. Program Completion: The goal of this program is for Aspirants to successfully obtain their desired certifications, and for Mentors to flex their Adobe Marketo Engage expert muscles toward supporting and guiding Aspirants throughout the certification process, and develop and demonstrate their professional leadership and product expertise skills (some exclusive Adobe swag may also be included!) . Spots will be limited, so apply today.   

 

Join the Mentorship Program:  

We encourage all Community Members interested in upgrading their skill levels to participate in this transformative Mentorship Program. By leveraging the expertise of our Community's Mentors, you'll gain invaluable insights to accelerate your learning, and enhance your professional prospects.

Whatever your level or experience in Marketo, and you want to a mentor or mentee this is one of the best programs for helping and growing within the community.

Also exciting to see who you get paired with!

What a great idea to support fellow Marketo users!

 

When I got my certifications the first time around, I felt like I had to do a lot of searching on my own to find what I needed, and having a peer to reach out to would have been wonderful.

 

I hope that every Aspirant gets all the benefits from this and that Mentors enjoy sharing their expertise with them too 😀
