MuleSoft is releasing the MCD – Integration & API Associate exam as a new 60-question, proctored exam. The proctored exam will become available for registration on March 12.  

This certification validates that developers that are new to MuleSoft (less than 6 months of experience) are ready to work on projects with guidance and supervision. By completing the MCD – Integration and API Associate certification, developers demonstrate they can:
