As Mark Twain famously said, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” If you want to get ahead in your technology career and become an expert application performance problem-solver, now’s your chance to get started—with our New Relic Certified Performance Pro program.

This brand-new certification verifies you as an authority on how to effectively monitor and troubleshoot application performance in your digital business. Once you pass the online certification exam, you’ll gain official recognition of your status as a New Relic Certified Performance Pro.

Join our New Relic APM certification class at FutureStack: New York

Join us on September 12, 2017 (the day before the official start of FutureStack: New York) for an afternoon of instruction on the foundation and finer points of application performance monitoring (APM). A team of New Relic senior technical instructors will deliver a course that will prepare you to take the online certification exam. This half-day class will cover issues such as:

  • NRU trainer phil weberHow to use New Relic APM to identify and troubleshoot application performance problems
  • How to configure alerts to be proactively notified when a problem occurs
  • How to use APIs to automate tasks and customize New Relic APM’s behavior

You’ll get the chance to practice your new skills with hands-on exercises throughout the class, and at the end of the day you will be given the details for a free online certification exam. Those who successfully pass this test will officially become New Relic Certified Performance Pros, which includes a digital badge and certification to display on your website and social media profiles. Show the world you’re a certified pro!

The New Relic Certified Performance Pro course and certification exam are free with your paid FutureStack: New York registration. If you have already registered for FutureStack, log in and update your registration to include the certification class enrollment. The class will be held in the Sheraton Times Square starting at 1 p.m.

Online instruction is also available

In October and November 2017, New Relic University (NRU) will begin offering instructor-led webinar certification classes to help you prepare for the exam. The New Relic Certified Performance Pro webinar prep course schedule with registration dates and times will be posted soon to the NRU site. Watch for them there.
