About This Program

Redis Certified Developer is a professional certification program designed for software developers skilled in application development using Redis. Earning this certification is a great way to ensure that you've achieved a high level of Redis mastery. You can also use this certification to demonstrate your Redis expertise to prospective employers.


A Redis Certified Developer understands how to use the full breadth of Redis's data structures to store and access data for a wide variety of use cases. Even if you've used Redis extensively, you'll want to dedicate time for study and review. When you enroll in the Redis Certified Developer Program, you'll be given a study guide and access to a practice test.

Redis University courses are not required to take the certification exam; however, they're a great way to prepare. We recommend these courses:

Data Structures

  • RU101: Introduction to Redis Data Structures
  • RU202: Redis Streams

Application Development

Choose one:

  • RU102J: Redis for Java Developers
  • RU102JS: Redis for JavaScript Developers


The Redis Certified Developer exam is a timed, 90-minute multiple-choice test. You can schedule your exam for any time of day during our monthly exam window. You can also take the exam from any location, including your own home. All you need is a computer and Internet connection. To help ensure the integrity of these exams and assist with any questions or problems, we use a live proctoring service for each exam. At the start of your exam, you'll connect with a proctor who will verify your identity and then unlock your exam.

Badges and Certificates

Developers who successfully pass the certification exam will receive a signed, digital badge and certificate with a unique, persistent URL. This will serve as proof of your certification. You can display this badge on your LinkedIn profile, promote it on your resume, or link to it from anywhere on the web.


We use ProctorU for live, online proctoring. Once you register for the Redis Certified Developer Prep and Scheduling course, you'll be able to see the upcoming exam dates. When you're ready to schedule your exam, you'll create a ProctorU account and then pay for and select your exam date and time.

To use ProctorU, you'll need a high-speed Internet connection, a webcam (internal or external), a Windows or Apple operating system, and a valid, non-expired government-issued photo ID. You'll also need either the Chrome or Firefox web browser.
