在今年(2017)的2月1日Google官方部落格中的一篇文章:

Introducing Associate Android Developer Certification by Google

說到:

The Associate Android Developer Certification program was announced at Google I/O 2016, and launched a few months later. Since then, over 322 Android developers spanning 61 countries have proven their competency and earned the title of Google Certified Associate Android Developer.

「自從2016 Google I/O發表AAD認證以來,直到今年的1月為止,共有322位Android開發人取得這個獨特的認證,各分佈在61個國家」

To establish a professional standard for what it means to be an Associate Android developer in the current job market, Google created this certification, which allows us to recognize developers who have proven themselves to uphold that standard.

「Google設計AAD認證的目的,是希望它成為工作市場上的一個具專業代表性的標準,讓我們能夠證明並確認開發人員其能夠勝任這些職場工作」

We conducted a job task analysis to determine the required competencies and content of the certification exam. Through field research and interviews with experts, we identified the knowledge, work practices, and essential skills expected of an Associate Android developer.

「為此我們進行了工作分析以確認那些能力是認證所必需具備的,透過實地研究、與許多專案面談後,我們訂定出一個Android開發員所需要的知識、練習與能力」

The certification process consists of a performance-based exam and an exit interview. The certification fee includes three exam attempts. The cost for certification is $149 USD, or 6500 INR if you reside in India. After payment, the exam will be available for download, and you have 48 hours to complete and submit it for grading.

「AAD認證包括了以能力表現為基礎的測驗以及最後的線上面談,認證費用包含了三次的測驗機會,費用為149美金。支付費用後可立即進行測驗,下載專案並在4824小時內完成、送交(上傳)進行評分。」

註: 2017年8月考試時間縮減為24小時

In the exam, you will implement missing features and debug an Android app using Android Studio. If you pass, you will undergo an exit interview where, you will answer questions about your exam and demonstrate your knowledge of Associate Android Developer competencies.

「你的工作就是完成一個Android App中所有未實作的功能,並使用Android Studio開發工作進行除錯,評分通過後必須進行線上面談,在這個面談中回答有關這個測驗的相關問題,並證明你擁有AAD認證要件中所列出的知識與能力。」

以下是由Google製作,能快速瞭解AAD認證的影片

Earning your AAD Certification signifies that you possess the skills expected of an Associate Android developer, as determined by Google. You can showcase your credential on your resume and display your digital badge on your social media profiles. As a member of the AAD Alumni Community, you will also have access to program benefits focused on increasing your visibility as a certified developer.

「取得AAD認證代表你擁有經過Google確認過的Android開發員能力,你可以在履歷中附上AAD數位標章,也可以在社群的個人資料中展示它,成為AAD認證社群中的一員也能為你提高認證的能見度」

看了這個劃時代的Android證照的介紹後,你心動想挑戰它嗎? 如果你已具有數個大型專案的經歷,面對十幾個Activity、Service與最新的Material Design都能輕鬆解決問題,是時候試著去取得它,為自己的專業能力加上Google的光芒。也可以選擇由第一時間取得AAD認證Hank老師所設計的 Google認證Android開發員考照能力培訓,避免找尋資訊與方法的冗長時間,用密集培訓的方式強化專案開發能力,證明自己的開發專長是有效的,且符合國際規格。

更新(2017-06-18): AAD的考題大概一到兩個月會出現新題型,最近RecyclerView與SQLite資料庫的要求越來越靈活,對於應試者的要實務經驗要求越深入,建議有心想考的朋友,要再多花點時間在不同的RecyclerView與CursorLoader與Service應用案例上。
