HubSpot Academy offers two different types of certifications:
1. HubSpot-Agnostic Certifications - these are industry best practices, never have the word "HubSpot" in the title and free for users.
2. HubSpot Software Certifications - these are specific to the HubSpot software, typically have the word "HubSpot" in the title, include practical exercises in the software and usually require a Pro or Enterprise license to compete. (If a professor or student is logged into their Education Partner Program portal, they can take these certifications for free.)
Though all of our certifications are high quality, we especially recommend the HubSpot Software Certifications because you and your students receive these for free by being in the Education Partner Program which has both monetary and competitive value when students can add these to their resumes and LinkedIn profiles.
NOTE ON COMPLETION TIME: If you assign the HubSpot Software Certifications to your students with a deadline, please note that the HubSpot Academy team grades the required practical exercises in the certification within 7 business days. Because of this, we recommend students complete their assigned certifications at least a week prior a class' deadline.
