Announcement about the AAE Program
As of March 31, 2016 the ARM Accredited Engineer and ARM Accredited Microcontroller Engineer qualification exams will no longer be available. If you have registered to take the exams, you must do so before this date. For further information, please refer to the FAQ list below.
Why is the program ending?
With the increasing reach of the ARM University Relations program into the education of the engineers of the future, the Partner Enablement Group took the decision to direct its resources into other areas aimed at providing knowledge- based services to professional engineers.
Can I still get a certificate (or duplicate) certificate?
For candidates who have passed an ARM Accredited Engineer exam we will issue certificates until June 30, 2016. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a certificate.
Is my accreditation still valid?
Although the ARM Accredited Engineer exams will be retired, those candidates who have passed an ARM Accredited Engineer exam can still include this on their qualification history as there is no expiry date for the accreditation. The logo may still be used on personal business cards and on social media profiles e.g. LinkedIn. We have no plans to withdraw this.
Will you release any ARM Accredited Engineer exams in the future?
From March 31, 2016 the ARM Accredited Engineer Program will close, and we do not anticipate releasing more exams in the future.
If you have any further queries, please contact email@example.com
The ARM Accredited Engineer (AAE) program offers two standard-level accreditations, which together cover Cortex-A, Cortex-R and Cortex-M processors.
ARM Accredited Engineer (AAE)
The AAE is a standard-level accreditation covering software-related aspects of the ARMv7 Architecture, with a specific focus on Cortex-A and Cortex-R profiles, plus common subjects like software tools. It does not include questions about Cortex-M systems. The AAE is aimed at general embedded software and systems developers who have a broad knowledge of ARM technology, biased towards applications processors and real-time processors. Find out more.
ARM Accredited MCU Engineer (AAME)
The AAME is a standard-level accreditation covering the ARMv6-M and ARMv7-M (Cortex-M) architecture profiles. This accreditation is aimed at general embedded software engineers with a broad knowledge of ARM technology, biased towards microcontrollers. Find out more.
