Business Practitioner Exam Preparation

  • The Magento study guide plus over a 100 pages of comments.
  • Easy-to-read format (PDF).

The Prep Course

Over and over, people say this is one of the hardest Magento tests. I have had people come to me saying that they have tried 2+ times, and failed.

As such, I put together a course that I have complete confidence will help you achieve this certification (provided you have at least 6 months of Magento 2 experience). As proof, I have many testimonials of those who have achieved certification with it.

This course includes a 100% pass guarantee (or we refund you money to retake), your own Commerce environment, with the B2B module (plus the study guide and practice test), and super practical course work.

What does the course cover?

This prep course prepares you to take (and pass) the Magento 2 Solution Specialist certification. The certification is a 60-question test covering how to use Magento and how to map Magento's solutions to a merchant's needs. It also tests a candidate's knowledge of some legalities, general ecommerce knowledge and conversion rate optimization.

Course objectives:

The course matches the objectives laid out in the Magento study guide for this test. If desired, this easily fits into a 7-week study program:

  • Week 1: Objective 1, eCommerce concepts, B2B module, Multi-Source Inventory
  • Week 2: Objective 2, Magento Architecture, Hosting, API, Scopes
  • Week 3: Objective 3 (Part 1), Magento admin and security features, content staging, sales
  • Week 4: Objective 3 (Part 2), Selling features, content management system and reporting
  • Week 5: Objective 4, requirements gathering, internationalization, legal compliance with the Magento application, returns
  • Week 6: Objective 5, catalog features
  • Week 7: Test-taking concepts (BONUS), final review

What is included in the course?

The Magento Business Practitioner is a 7-week class that will present and help you acquire the knowledge necessary for you to pass the test—guaranteed. In these classes, we present information to help you understand the material covered in the exam, work through practice questions, learn test-taking strategies and make homework assignments for the week.

Please understand that this is NOT a "here are the questions to memorize" type of class. Nor is it "here are some tricks to remember." Rather, our focus will be to help you acquire the knowledge you need to pass the test.

  • On-demand: webinars are released weekly, watch on your own timing. While it is pre-recorded, you have full availability of the exclusive community.
  • Your own Magento 2 Commerce environment with B2B enabled.
    This is available for three months. You can choose whenever you would like it to start.
  • Exclusive access to a discussion group.
  • Weekly exercises. We review your work to ensure that you are on a path to success.
  • Additional practice tests / quizzes.
  • Guaranteed. We have your back in preparing to achieve this certification.

Who can join?

This is for someone who is committed to passing the test. Our commitment is to help you achieve that.

Beyond that, we will approve candidates who have at least 8 months of experience in ecommerce and Magento 2 projects.

What is involved with participating?

  • 1-2 hour/week classes.
  • 3-6 hours/week studying, completing exercises.
  • After you try for your certification, send us your results (we keep this private and use it to help improve our resources).

What if I fail?

Note, this is for the gold version only.

We are 100% committed to helping you pass the test—that is why we guarantee it. However, in the unlikely event that you fail the certification, here is what we will do:

  • We will talk with you (Skype, Slack) to determine your weaknesses.
  • We will then present you with a plan of study to resolve those weaknesses.
  • We will be available to you as you have further questions.
  • We will refund the amount for the certification retake (this will come from the fees that you paid for the course). Note that we will refund up to the total that you paid to join the course.

Note that our 100% guarantee lasts for 3 months from the time that you start up your sandbox. You can purchase the course and start the sandbox up at a later time. The reason for this is the knowledge we give you is fresh in your mind. The further from the teaching you go, the less you will remember and the more likely you are to fail. For us to honor the guarantee, we also require that 1) all coursework is completed and 2) that your practice test score is over 65% (in a 4-week window of time. For example, you take it on July 1, then again on July 15, so we look at your July 1 score).

That's the best guarantee in the industry. As you can see, we are committed to you passing.

What's the refund policy?

Full refund through the first week after you purchase the course. After that, no refunds. This course is an investment on both of our parts. Let's keep it that way.

We will also provide a partial refund each time you fail the exam (to retake the test). See the section above for details.

  • The course is $600
  • The initial take is $300, and you pay for that. So your investment is a total of $900
  • If you fail and then are ready to take the test again, I refund you $240 ($300 with a 20% discount for retakes). You use that money to go buy another voucher.
  • If you fail again (hopefully not!), then I would give you another refund of $240.
  • If you fail again (this would be very disappointing!!) I would refund you the final $120.

One thing to note is that we give the refund when you are ready to retake the test.

Scholarship Application

We would like to grant a scholarship to someone who is not in a financial position to pay for the course. We are looking for a candidate who is driven, self-motivated and willing to invest the time necessary to be successful in the course (ie, pass the test). If that is you, please apply below.

Scholarship Application


Yes, we will refund the money you paid for the study guide if you fail. However, having participated in writing this exam, just reading this study guide will not assure you of a passing score. You are spending $85 on a study guide for a $260 test, so it is important that you thoroughly study and practice. However, I strongly recommend joining our Solution Specialist Prep Course. This, too, is guaranteed because we believe you will pass on the first try.
