Platform Developer 2 - Certification Goal


July 2022 Exam Outline Update:

Salesforce has updated the official exam guide on July 1, 2022. This is to align the Platform Developer II exam guide to the recently updated Platform Developer I. The main highlights of the updates are the following:

  • Decreased the sections from 8 to 5
  • Salesforce Fundamentals and Data Modeling and Management were combined into 1 new section: Advanced Developer Fundamentals
  • Integration section was combined with the existing Process Automation and Logic which resulted to: Process Automation, Logic, and Integration
  • 2 existing sections were also combined which resulted to: Testing, Debugging, and Deployment

These changes resulted with lesser number of objectives in total, as well as rebalancing the weighted percentages.

There was no new content introduced, most of the changes will involve migrating of content from one section to another. Our team has started analyzing these changes and we will be gradually updating our materials. 


As of July 22, 2022, all changes related to the recently updated exam outline for Platform Developer II have been implemented. 

You can find the official exam guide here.

  1. Tatyana Belousova

    I passed my PDII exam today.

    These guides in addition to practice exams are extremely useful. However, JS topics in the “Apply techniques and tools for testing and debugging Lightning Web Components, Aura Components, and Visualforce controllers, Visualforce controller extensions, and JavaScript” chapter seemed a bit extra for me

      Hi Tatyana, congratulations on passing the PD2 exam! Thanks for the feedback. We had to include fundamental concepts in JavaScript so that its behavior is understood especially when it is used to build unit tests.
