The Qt Company's website has a dedicated page on the subject and if you click on the "Register Now" button, you'll be sent to the website of the company that handles the certification exams around the world. You should find there what you are looking for.
The GNU Project has two principal licenses to use for libraries. One is the GNU Lesser GPL; the other is the ordinary GNU GPL. The choice of license makes a big difference: using the Lesser GPL permits use of the library in proprietary programs; using the ordinary GPL for a library makes it available only for free programs.
With Qt and the Qt Safe Renderer it is possible to create many different kinds of certified systems. While our initial focus is on automotive digital cockpits this solution is also applicable to medical and industrial automation systems. ISO 26262, IEC 61508 or IEC 62304 are some of the applicable standards that we are working to certify the new Qt Safe Renderer for.
Qt Safe Renderer works with Qt 5.9 and Creator 4.3, or later versions. For the target RTOS we are supporting INTEGRITY and QNX. On the silicon side we are supporting the NXP iMX6 and NVIDIA Tegra X1 with plans to to add support for Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Renesas H3. We can support alternative RTOS and processors on an as needed basis.
The Qt Safe Renderer and related tooling will become available as an add-on to the commercially licensed Qt.
@Tino Thanks a lot for your reply, then I understand why there are more exams in the Person VUE website.
I passed the 010-002 in 2009 and am thinking about getting the next Qt certificate. According to your reply , I think there are two paths to follow during this transition period.
First one is joining the 022-001, to the get the pure C++ specialist .
second one is joining the 010-003 and 021-002 to get the Qt C++ specialist.
Is the curriculum of 022-001(http://wiki.qt.io/Curriculum-of-Qt-advanced-certification) still valid?
If I made any misunderstanding, could you kindly please point out? Thanks.
I think lots of Qt certificate holders have the same questions as me. Can we add some explanations about this old/new certificate system and this transition period in our developer website or wiki? that will be very helpful.
@raven-worx I mean to say, old exam 021-001 give Qt- Widget and UI Specialist, and new 021-001 give Certified Qt C++
Specialist, if I have one old exam and given new I will get c++ or for that, i need to Give new Essential available.
If I understand your post correctly then you are asking if you can become a Qt specialist if you succeed in 2 Qt developer tests instead of taking the Qt specialist exam?
AFAIK you have to take the Qt specialist to become a Qt specialist. A lot of Qt specialists have taken only one Qt developer exam and then went for the Qt Specialist title. I don't have statistics on this though ;-)
Slow down there. Some stuff there is far from ideal like the chapter on QThread and some parts are obsolete like QHttp/QFtp. On the other hand this has probably been the starting point for many of us so strongly recommended
Qt Certification is handled by PearsonVue. You can search there for Vienna, a quick look showed 5 possibilities.
Like other certificates, they prove that you have reached a certain degree of knowledge in the understanding and the use of the framework which increase your value when looking for a job requiring Qt as part of your CV.
@Hareen-Laks@dheerendra If you are developing an application for Mobile Devices, there will be many different Operating Systems like one device will be having Android, one will be having iOS etc.., So you need to write code specific to each Operating System which is time consuming and it is very costly. So there arises a thought that "Can we write code once and use on different Operating Systems..?" The answer is YES, with the help of Cross platform libraries. And Qt Framework is the one which provides Cross Platform Libraries for developing Apllications across different sets of Platforms.
I'm not sure I understand that phrase correctly. However the use of QVariant to transfer complex data from one point to another comes to mind. And you can use QVariant based container when you want to pass heterogeneous data from one class to another.
[quote author="pkj__" date="1377160932"]How long are the qt certification valid for? Is it like CCNA which expire after a year?
No they do not expire. But they have a version number though which can be used to determine how up-to-date your certification is.
[quote author="pkj__" date="1377160932"]
And I believe there is a significant waiting time till when printed certificates are delivered. Do we get a mail in the meantime from digia, so that I can quote the same in my CV??[/quote]
Indeed, before you receive the printed certificate you have to wait a ~2-3 months.
AFAIR you just receive a confirmation that you passed the exam (printed on ordinary whitepaper).
Having some insights in "certification" as such, I can tell you, that no certification program in general is thought to fill a lack of experience. If you are looking for a long term employment, this is one more reason to avoid all "tricks" which can undermine the trust on both sides. Generally, a good hiring manager prefers getting people with more commitment, loyalty and a clear will to become better than "high-fly" experts who will soon jump of the board on the next convenient occasion...
Yes, a Qt Certification proof is yet another item you can put on your CV in addition to all the projects you have done in the past. But! This is more like an external, and independent reference for your skills, but not a skill on its own!
