The Test Prep: Zend PHP Certification Training course prepares experienced PHP programmers for the challenge of passing the PHP certification exam and achieving the status of Zend Certified Engineer (ZCE). This is a test preparation and PHP review course – it does not teach PHP.   The course will guide you through an in-depth, intense review of all of the major topics within the ten certification areas. Plus, it contains important information about the exam itself and strategies for answering the exam questions. Participants are continually challenged to test their knowledge with focused quizzes.



This course moves at a fast pace and assumes at least an intermediate skill level in PHP programming. Candidates for the certification need to be experienced in all ten areas covered by the exam.


What will I learn?

In reviewing all ten areas of the certification with your instructor, you will be able to detect any weak areas for further study. Numerous quizzes on the content give you practice with the style of the exam questions while presenting important requisite knowledge. The three mock certification exams provide even further practice with the content and strategy for the exam, increasing your chances of success!
