To prepare for your exam, we recommend participants complete the Slack Certified Admin Prep Course or Slack Certified Developer Prep Course to prepare for the corresponding exam. That said, it's not mandatory to complete the course before taking the exam.

The amount of time it takes to prepare for the exams will vary based on your level of experience. We usually recommend setting aside 10-15 hours for the prep courses, including the practice activities. If you're new to the role you're studying for, expect to take a longer amount of time with the prep courses. If you're already deeply experienced, you may use the prep materials as a way to review and see what areas you might not know as much about.
