Back in October I walked into an office building in Santa Monica to take potentially the most difficult exam I’ve ever taken and it was to become a certified Unity expert in rigging and animation. I walked in to see two people in the office where the exam was to take place. One of them was a Unity employee that was there to proctor the exam and the other person was there to become a certified Unity expert.
I was shocked that there was only one other person there to take the exam. Before everything kicked off, two other people joined as well. The surprising thing was that this exam was free for anyone who has shipped two or more titles and have experience in writing c++ or c#. It was also free because Unity used these test results to figure out the scoring structure. When talking with the proctor, he told me that very few people turn out to these events potentially because they are intimidated by it. Yeah, it was a hard exam, but it was worth it.
Today I got notification that they finished grading the exams and I was in the group who passed. I hope the other three people that took it with me passed as well. You can check out the certification below if you are so inclined. And if the opportunity presents itself to you for something like this, I say take it. You may come out the other end with a certificate showing you know your stuff!
