For Slack admins at organizations of all sizes, you're in the right place to learn and prove your skills.


If you have experience with Slack’s admin capabilities and what it takes to create an effective experience for your team, then becoming a ​Slack Certified Admin​ will let you put your skills to the test and share your credentials. 

By getting certified, you’ll be able to show the world that you have knowledge of Slack’s features ​and​ how to use them to build a simpler, more pleasant and more productive experience for your team. Once you pass this exam, you will officially be a Slack Certified Admin for 18 months!

You'll be able to show off your credential to others in your organization or in the wider community of people managing and driving organizational change with Slack.


To be a Slack Certified Admin, you must demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary to implement, configure and manage Slack. You should be comfortable recommending policies, settings, features and thought leadership for use cases on all paid Slack plans, including Standard, Plus and Enterprise Grid.  We recommend that you have at least six to twelve months of real-world experience as a Slack admin as well as experience working in the admin console.

This program is designed to build skills and verify proficiency for Slack admins. We recommend that you already have a moderate level of familiarity with:

  • Admin roles
  • Slack architecture
  • User provisioning
  • Settings and policies
  • Channel structure
  • App approval processes
  • Data security
  • Process design
  • How to drive adoption for your team

For those with less experience, or for anyone who wants to build these skills in preparation for the exam, we recommend you take the Slack Certified Admin Prep Course. This course will help you gain the skills needed to pass the exam.
