What Application Performance Management (APM) certifications do exist?

Hi pprofessionals,

I'm still a newbie to monitoring tools like APM and I have a question: 

Are there any Application Performance Management (APM) certifications for tools like CA APM, AppDynamics, Dynatrace, or any other APM-related certification?  

Thank you!

There are AppDynamics certifications that are quite popular nowadays:

1. AppDynamics Certified Associate Performance Analyst

2. AppDynamics Certified Implementation Professional

Also, for Dynatrace:

Dynatrace Associate Exam – Application Monitoring Certification

Each vendor will typically provide a certification for their tool.  I expect this for every vendor.  I'm not aware of a tool agnostic APM certification .... which would be an interesting cert I would love to use when evaluating candidates.

@reviewer1581165 In general all tool vendors have certification programs. You will be able to find them on their websites.
