Important update: see my new answer below...

$600 plus plane ticket, hotel costs, and 3 wasted vacation days, no thanks! In fact, no one I asked in my field even knew about the certification program. At least for now, it won't exactly help me get anywhere...

@Kaccie Li: you had to take vacation days? What a miserly company!

It's a big difference from the "For FREE" pricing you mentioned before ;-)

(I suspect for most people, the travel and accommodation costs would be higher than the exam costs itself.)

Well that was the price for the product offered at that time. Current pricing reflects significant improvements in the product!

Wish they would offer Simulink certification too. Perhaps some day. For those who have gotten other kinds of software certifications: did your employer pay? What is the advantage to the employer to have a certified employee, perhaps that you have to increase your skills to pass?

RoJo is correct.

You receive confirmation of any MathWorks training courses you complete, but there is currently no MathWorks certification program for MATLAB. People have asked for this and it is under consideration.


I'll give a fun example of logical indexing from my work yesterday. I have an nx3 matrix and I needed to find the maximum absolute value in each row and its index. I then needed to accumulate these into 6 bins: columns 1-3 where the maximum absolute is positive and the other and columns 1-3 where max(abs) was negative. Instead of using ind2sub with the row index and the winning column to check the sign, I used these lines which involve plenty of your favorite thing Matt:

[~,idx_mx] = max(abs(posneg),[],2);%abs max will be equal to min if negative
[~,idx_mn] = min(posneg,[],2);
lox(ii,[3 1 5]) = accumarray(idx_mx(idx_mx==idx_mn),1,[3 1]).';
lox(ii,[4 2 6]) = accumarray(idx_mx(idx_mx~=idx_mn),1,[3 1]).';

Epic win with logical indexing over two calls to sub2ind/sign!

Matt, seeing as you passed up a lovely chance to use logical indexing, I'll be expecting my certificate soon ;-)

You can (and, indeed, already do) have all the certificates we currently offer! For FREE! What a bargain.

Mathworks certify that you complete their courses.

You can request the brochure at

However, if you are looking for an exam structure similar to Java certification I am not aware of any, apart from being part of university courses.
