This is what I found in the link below. What course do we have to complete for pre-requisites ? Is it mandatory to do these approved courses before I register for step 1 of the SCEA exam ?

Hello Binod
You can do the required course at any time. Before, during or after certification. I'm doing part 2 and 3 and I will make the course mandatory only at the end.
Regards.

Fernando,

1. If I understood correctly, we can do pre-requisite courses after the part 1 certification, is this right ?
2. By the way what are the pre-requisite courses, could you please list them out ?
3. Does these pre-requisite courses require extra cost and if yes what is the cost ?

Thank you

Binod,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

1) It's not really a pre-requisite course. It's a course you have to take to become certified. And yes, you can do it after part 1.
2) They are listed here
3) Different courses charge different amounts. SOme of the courses suggest pre-requisites. Note that these are knowledge pre-reqs. You don't need to actually take those pre-req courses to take the next course.
