Certified candidates should be able to:
- Use MuleSoft-hosted Anypoint Platform to take a basic API through all the steps of its lifecycle: design, build, deploy, manage, and govern.
- Use Anypoint Studio to build, test, and debug basic integrations and API implementations.
- Connect to a range of resources including databases, files, web services, SaaS applications, and JMS queues.
- Perform basic data transformations using DataWeave 2.0.
- Control event flow and handle errors.
- Process batch records.
- Format: Multiple-choice, closed book, proctored, online or at a testing center
- Length: 60 questions
- Duration: 120 minutes (2 hours)
- Pass score: 70%
- Language: English
- Exam Fees: $250 and 1 Flexible Training Credit (FTC)
You can take the exam a maximum of 5 times, with a 24-hour wait between each attempt.
The certification expires two years from the date you pass the exam. To extend the certification validity after this date, you can take the MuleSoft Certified Developer – Level 1 (Mule 4) MAINTENANCE exam.
