When somebody is a Certified Laravel Developer, it means they have demonstrated through our exam that they know how to build Laravel apps. It gives confidence to employers looking to hire developers, and to clients looking for an agency to build apps for them.
There are of course many other aspects to hiring somebody: is the person a good fit for the company, do they have good communication skills, does their salary expectation match their skills? We don't test for any of these qualities, that's still up to you.
And, sometimes it makes a lot of sense to hire a skilled developer who's interested in learning Laravel, even if they've never actually used it.
Every employer, client, or developer, has different needs. Thanks to the Laravel Certification Program, there's one less problem for you to worry about.
