Umbraco 5 UK course FAQ

With the release of Umbraco 5 upon us a there will be some changes to the certification courses. Doug Robar and I receive daily emails with questions about this so I thought I would blog to clear up what will be happening.

The information in this course applies to UK courses only - it is probably accurate for other courses too, but please check with your local trainer before booking anything.

So without further ado, here is the Umbraco 5 training FAQ:

Will you stop teaching Umbraco 4? 

Yes, we will stop running public Umbraco 4 courses in the UK - those listed for February will be the last, we won't schedule any after that. Both Doug and I will be happy to teach Umbraco 4 at your company office upon request.

When will you start teaching Umbraco 5?

March. We've scheduled some courses which are listed at

Will my existing Umbraco certification become invalid?

No you are still an Umbraco certified developer;  you will still be listed on the Umbraco site. If you are a company that holds solution provider status you will continue to do so.

What is the Umbraco 4 to Umbraco 5 upgrade course?

For a very limited period we will be able to offer upgrade courses. You will need to hold an existing Level 2 certification to attend.

The courses are designed to quickly update certified developers knowledge of Umbraco 4 so that is applicable to Umbraco 5. The course runs two days and covers topics originally in the Level 1 and Level 2 courses.

Both Doug an I will teach this course. I'm really excited about working with Doug - Without wishing to blow my own trumpet I think this is a great opportunity to work with both of us over two days. We'll take you for a beer too!

Can you do onsite Umbraco 5 training?

Yes, I'll be happy to book in dates for on-site Umbraco 5 training with you.

I have another question!

Just post your question in the comments here and I'll add it to this post an answer it.
