Encompass Developer Essentials Certification

Become a Certified Encompass Developer

Are you a software developer new to using Encompass Developer Connect? Or are you an Encompass developer looking to strengthen your development capabilities? The 3-day Encompass Developer Essentials Certification focuses on developing applications using Encompass Developer Connect, while leveraging the Encompass Developer Connect Portal for research and testing. You’ll use the Encompass Developer Connect APIs to create, update, and report on loans, plus add and update eFolder attachments within loan files. You will also use Microsoft Visual Studio® to develop working applications with Ellie Mae’s open source .NET Language Bindings.


Encompass Experience: Learners should have basic navigation skills within Encompass to verify the Encompass Developer Connect call results. 

Development Experience: Learners should have practical coding in JSON and an object-oriented programming language, such as C#. The .NET Language Bindings are currently only provided as C#, so much of the course uses C#.

Software Experience: It is helpful to have a basic working knowledge of Postman® and Microsoft Visual Studio. 

Encompass Developer Connect: No prior experience is necessary. 


By the end of this course, you should be able to: 

  • Identify the requirements of executing Encompass Developer Connect calls
  • Leverage the Encompass Developer Connect Try It Feature
