Q: I just took the PHP 5.3 exam, does this make my exam outdated?
A: No, the exam was developed so that once someone is certified on PHP they are certified for life. While there is no need to take the exam again, some ZCEs do to show they are current with the latest technology. It is completely optional to retake.
Q: Is there any discount for ZCEs to update their certification?
A: Yes, we do offer a discounted exam voucher to current ZCEs who wish to update their certification. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ZCE # (looks like this ZENDXXXXXX) so that we can verify you are a ZCE. We will then email you a discount code to purchase a new voucher online.
Q: What are the differences between the PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.5 exam?
A: The PHP 5.5 exam (Zend Certified PHP Engineer) is covering the same topics as the 5.3 exam, but the exam has been updated to provide more focus on the key knowledge areas for PHP Development. Some areas were also expanded to include more emphasis on improved functionality in the 5.4 & 5.5 versions.
