A Certification of Excellence

A standout achievement in our brief history is the awarding of over 125 MQTT 3.1.1 HiveMQ Professional Certifications. This accomplishment is not merely a quantitative measure but a qualitative one, highlighting the rigorous training and high standards our students have met and exceeded. It’s worth noting that this certification is challenging, with a less than 50% pass rate on a student's first try. 

What’s Next?

Our curriculum is expanding, and with it, the opportunities for learners to deepen their knowledge and enhance their skills. We're thrilled to open pre-registrations for an array of new courses and certifications tailored to meet the evolving demands of the IoT industry.

HiveMQ's certification helped me refresh and validate my understanding of MQTT 3.1.1. It was great to be able to add my skills to my LinkedIn profile after completing the course so others can know about my expertise. I'd encourage anyone looking to grow to take this course and exam.

The HiveMQ University is a great starting point for those looking to consolidate and validate their knowledge of the de facto standard protocol for IIoT.

The MQTT 3.1.1 Certification was a significant milestone for me, serving as both a validation of my skills and an enhancement of my technical proficiency. Here at Concept Reply, it also helps reassure our customers of our expertise in MQTT 3.1.1, which will be applied in a smart farming project. I believe it's an essential credential for anyone in the MQTT community who aims to instill confidence in their clients and lead the way in IoT projects.
