Show your expertise with one or all Xero certifications

Xero certification shows businesses how well you know key areas of Xero.

Xero advisor certification

This is the core certification that gives you the foundation skills you need to serve clients as proficiently and effectively as possible. For bronze and above partners, being recognised as a Xero-certified advisor practice also includes the opportunity to earn champion status and grow your clients through a Xero advisor directory listing.

Gain champion benefits

To get bronze champion status and earn extra benefits, your practice will need two certifications; silver, gold and platinum partners will require three to be recognised as a champion. One of your certifications must be Xero advisor. At the end of each month your champion criteria is reviewed, this is when the change takes effect.
