I heard about a new certification earlier this year in a MUG webinar that precedes the MCE exam called the Marketo Certified Associate Program. From what I remember, it involves having 3 months of hands-on experience in Marketo and general marketing experience. I believe that this exam would be more entry level and probably a good place to start for me, as we implemented Marketo this year but I have previous marketing automation experience. I believe it was supposed to be coming out in Q3 of this year (aka, now) but I haven't heard anything new. Does anyone have more information about it, or am I just jumping the gun?
