The Embarcadero Certification Center provides two types of tests one can take to become a recognized (and to have a "proof" for an employer or a potential customer that you have what it takes to get the job done) member of the global Delphi community.
The Delphi Certified Developer exam tests your general knowledge of Delphi programming concepts. You will be tested on language syntax, programming techniques, using the IDE, and database development.
The Delphi Certified Master Developer exam tests your advanced knowledge of Delphi programming concepts, software architecture choices, and the depth and breadth of Delphi XE's software development capabilities. You will be tested on fundamental and advanced Delphi language syntax, programming techniques, using the IDE, building projects and groups, component use and development, and your experience in architecting and building desktop, client/server, Internet and multi-tier applications.
