Certification for VirtueMart, next seminar in Sweden

Written by Max Milbers on .

Certification - What is the idea behind

The idea behind VirtueMart is that a lot people participate in the project. This means that there are a lot 3rd party developers and webagencies using VirtueMart. But the disadvantage of this system compared to a unified trademark policy is that a also not qualified people offer their service. This leads to frustrated customers who often payed high prices for crappy templates (deleting virtuemart standard views completly) or completly misuse of the tax settings and so on. We add more and more documentation on, help is very welcome, but documentation won't solve the problem.


The certifications help shopowners to find easier a good support and service for their shops. Due the different levels of certification it is easier for endusers to choice the right service level for them. We created nice logos to indicate in our link list who is part of the program. It also gives endusers the possibility to give a feedback to the core team to easily clear misunderstandings. 

 bronze 2013 Silver Certification

Seminars for VirtueMart

The Bronze certfication is 3 days and meant for webagencies. You are teached what is to consider installing VirtueMart, fast and safe. The 3 days are enough to explain all concepts you need to administrate your VirtueMart as a Pro. Learn all advantages of the customfields, tax rules and already built in template features.

The Silver certification is 5 days and meant for webagencies which wanna do more than just using a layout override. Here you are teached also in the extension development: how does the trigger system work, what does the VirtueMart API provide already, how to extend the textinput plugin to my needs, how is the database organized. 

A small group ensures high qualified training, personalized teaching and a good mood. Also you have plenty chances for personal talks.

Picture taken at the silver certification seminar 2012 near Madrid, Spain. It was really a pleasure.

Latest release 2.0.22a has screwed with the vendor images for invoice pdf and print view from orders page.

For the next release, please, please remove the 3 lines from customer emails - Thank you for purchasing at --- Shop name, then another line...

We have footers now, I don't need it and it looks shockingly shite. (But thanks for the invoice customisation, thats ace).

I live in Southern California, USA and it would be great if you can conduct these certification seminars via a WebEx or similar. Thanks!
