Arduino Fundamentals Bundle
The Arduino Certification: Fundamentals exam + kit bundle is a comprehensive solution that will enhance your professional skills while providing official recognition throughout your development.
The Arduino Fundamentals exam + kit bundle includes an Arduino Starter Kit and access to the certification exam.
Developed in consultation with interaction designers and electronic engineering professionals as well as in regards to leading technology curriculum, the Arduino Fundamentals Certification exam assesses skills based upon exercises comprised of practical tasks from the Arduino Starter Kit.
To obtain the certificate, you will be requested to answer 36 questions over a period of 75 minutes.
Purchasing the bundle for $ 109,90 will grant you the Arduino Starter Kit and an activation code, which can be used to unlock 1 attempt at the Arduino Fundamentals exam. (Available worldwide except Brazil)
Purchasing the exam alone costs $30, and grants 1 attempt at the Arduino Fundamentals exam.
(Available worldwide except Brazil)
Once the purchase is complete, you can proceed to the exam right away.
You will receive a redemption code via email, and have six months to use it. Once the code has been redeemed, you have one year to activate the exam, otherwise the code will become invalid.
Questions available in English.
You can try the demo to have a closer look at how the exam will be.

You will encounter questions that test your knowledge in relation to the following 8 main categories:
For further questions, you can contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org
A: Anyone interested in engaging with Arduino through a process that involves study, practice and project building.
A: Obtain a certification that validates your understanding of the Arduino building blocks, such as the basics of physical computing, electronic circuits, programming, prototyping, and mechatronics. These are skills in high demand from both universities and employers.
A: The exam is web-based and consists of 36 questions in various formats that cover a range of Arduino-related topics. You get 75 minutes to complete the exam, and can freely navigate back and forth between the questions and editing your answers. Once the exam is submitted, your answers will be assessed immediately. To avoid a loss of your answers, please use only the exam navigation arrow buttons, and / or the left navigation panel. Do not use the browser back and forward buttons during the exam.
A: You will encounter questions that test your knowledge in relation to 8 main categories:
-Electricity. Understanding concepts such as resistance, voltage, power and capacitance, being able to measure and calculate them.
-Reading circuits and schematics. Understanding how electronics are represented visually, and the ability to read and analyze electronic circuits.
-Arduino IDE. Understanding the functionality of the Arduino development environment, serial communication, libraries and errors.
-Arduino Boards. Understanding the constitution and capabilities of an Arduino board and the functions of its different parts.
-Frequency and Duty cycle. Understanding the concepts of Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) and frequency, being able to calculate duty cycle.
-Electronic components. Understanding how various electronic components such as LEDs, sensors, buttons and motors work, and how to use them in a circuit.
-Programming syntax and semantics. Understanding the building blocks of Arduino programming language such as functions, arguments, variables and loops.
-Programming logic. Ability to program various electronic components, read, analyze and troubleshoot Arduino code.
A: There are no specific prerequisites for completing before taking the Fundamentals exam. However, the knowledge level and concepts tested in the exam closely match the content of the Arduino Starter Kit. We can therefore recommend going through the content of the Arduino Starter Kit Projects book, and building the projects introduced in it.
A: Yes, it is possible to pass the exam if you have a thorough knowledge of the basic concepts of electronics and physical computing specifically related to Arduino.
A: Yes, the exam is currently available in English only. In the near future other languages will be available.
A: You will need a computer and a stable internet connection. Please note that browsers on mobile devices (phones and tablets) are NOT supported.
A: Purchasing the exam alone (currently available in the US only) costs $30.00 and grants 1 attempt at the Arduino Fundamentals exam.
Purchasing the bundle (currently available in the US only) for $109.90, will grant you the Arduino Starter Kit and an activation code, which can be used to unlock 1 attempt at the Arduino Fundamentals exam.
A: You should receive an email with your invoice and activation code as soon as you purchase the Arduino Starter Kit +Exam bundle. Also, Please check your spam folder and look for the code. If you don't receive the email, please contact support at email@example.com
A: Yes, when purchasing the Arduino Starter Kit +Exam bundle, you will receive the redemption code via email, and have six months to use it. Once the code has been redeemed, you have one year to activate the exam; after that period, the code will become invalid. You will receive reminder emails prior to code and exam attempt expiration. If you buy the exam alone from the digital store, you have one year to take the exam.
