What is the Certificate Exam?
To help TensorFlow developers show their expertise in building highly effective deep learning and machine learning models, while also setting themselves apart, Google launched TensorFlow Certificate Program.
To pass the certificate exam, the candidate are required to have a prior experience in building Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, and time series models, all working with real world datasets.
The certificate exam costs 100$ and takes 5 hours to complete. To learn more about the exam, we recommend you to check out the Candidate Handbook.
