    Xamarin University and Xamarin Mobile Developer Certification have both been shutdown/deprecated.

    Learning is now done via the MS Learn platform at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/browse/?term=xamarin

    There is no direct equivalent certification. Current developer certifications available from Microsoft can be seen at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/browse/?resource_type=certification&roles=developer

    IMHO, it's a shame that Xamarin University was killed off, as it was excellent. I'm not sorry to see the back of the certification though - it was clear from questions asked/answered on these forums that some people who did get certified may have passed the test but they still did not know the subject, whereas there were/are plenty of people who never got certified who do know the subject matter.

    Thank you very much for your response and for the links.
    The course link is excellent. I would like to have certification for my CV but technical knowledge is more important.

    Thank you.
