Lotus Notes Domino 8.5 Certification Paths


Lotus Notes Domino 8.5 Certification Paths

In June 2011, the IBM Certification Program for Lotus Software announced the restructuring of the Lotus Notes Domino 8.5 core certification paths. In October 2011, the new core tests were released. The old exams remained available for those who had begun the certification process through to the end of the year. Having been withdrawn on December 31st, they are no longer available.

Individuals who wish to certify on Lotus Notes Domino 8.5, but have not achieved certification on Lotus Notes Domino 7.0 or 8.0 should follow the applicable path(s) below.

For Application Developers:
Pass LOT-985: Developing IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 Applications AND
Pass LOT-986: Creating IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 Applications with Xpages and Advanced Techniques
to achieve the title IBM Certified Application Developer – Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5

For System Administrators:
Pass LOT-925: Installing and Configuring IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 AND
Pass LOT-926: Managing and Maintaining IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 Environments
to achieve the title IBM Certified System Administrator – Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5

Additional Information for the Lotus Notes Domino Professional:

The recertification paths have not changed
Professionals who are certified in Lotus Notes Domino 8 as an administrator and/or developer must pass the applicable update test to obtain certification in release 8.5. More information on the upgrade path(s) can be found by selecting either of the Application Development or System Administrator certification title links above and viewing the requirements section.


Individuals who are certified in either stream of Lotus Notes Domino 7 have two options:

  1. Take the appropriate update exam for 8, then the corresponding update test for 8.5, or
  2. Take the appropriate core exams for 8.5

The program recommends option 1. Both options involve passing two tests, but the first option grants certification in release 8 as well as release 8.5.
