CHICAGO, IL – As a leading Magento Enterprise partner, Lyons Consulting Group has been selected to participate on Magento’s 2012 Advisory Board to help design the new Magento Certified Developer Exams for Magento developers. Magento, the leading open-source eCommerce platform, decided to create a certification exam that will validate real-world job skills and give hiring managers a tool for identifying qualified individuals.


Lyons Consulting Group, a premier eCommerce design, development and support firm, located in downtown Chicago, was selected as a member of the advisory board that participated in the design and creation of the certification exam which will be a benchmark for all Magento developers. 


Magento Certified Developer Exams are mid to advanced level certification geared toward professional developers that have real-world experience with Magento implementations. Created by Magento developers in the global Magento ecosystem, including Lyons Consulting Group, the exams were developed using the most rigorous industry standards and methodologies for exam development and for ensuring the exam’s accuracy in evaluating relevant skills.


“Magento is very fortunate to have an ecosystem of partners and developers whose expertise has helped many merchants achieve online success. Through our certification program we want to ensure a larger pool of Magento experts available to do the same for many more merchants. We highly value the support that our Gold Solution Partner, lyonscg, provided in the creation of the certification exam. Their expertise has been instrumental in the implementation of many outstanding Magento Enterprise sites,” said Susie Sedlacek, Magento Head of Services.
