Browsing the web should be an easy, no hassle experience, right? Unfortunately, mobile site experiences are not as uniform as we might like. There are plenty of problems at bay, including slow load speeds and badly designed user interfaces. It can get messy; so much that I often find myself requesting the desktop site instead. This is why Google wants to fight mobile page woes with a new mobile site certification program for developers.

The certification serves two purposes: helping the developer improve skills for one, while ensuring they can prove said talents to the world. The exam’s study guide covers four main topics. These are “Why mobile sites matter”, “Improve mobile site speed”, “Create an effective mobile UX” and “Advanced web technologies.”

This could be set as a standard for future reference. Developers might be able to showcase Google’s mobile site certification to make customers more comfortable hiring them. Likewise, those in need of a good mobile site can rest assured a certified dev will have the necessary knowledge to make an effective mobile site.

The test will be timed, giving takers a 90 minute limit to conclude. It includes 65 questions and has an 80% passing score, with a validity of 12 months for the sake of relevance. Interested? Just sign up to be a Google Partner and take the test.
