Magento Developer Certification as a Laravel Developer

I know this depends on the person and their experience, but I was trying to get a rough sense for how long it would take to get up to speed with Magento 2 and certified as someone who has been working with Laravel most recently.

About 8 years ago I worked with Magento 1 for about two and a half years. I worked with heavily customized WordPress projects for a couple years and for the last 3 years I’ve been building and maintaining Laravel applications.

Could an experienced PHP developer get certified in a matter of weeks or would it more likely take months?

I’m not employed at the moment, so I could dedicate full-time learning of Magento 2.

I was looking at purchasing a couple Udemy classes to get up to speed quickly, but if there are other better resources, besides the Magento documentation itself, I would be open to suggestions.

Is Laravel a decent foundation for learning Magento 2? I know Composer was added since I last used Magento, so I’m guessing there are other more modern updates that might be similar? I know the structure is different, but I’m somewhat familiar with the XML structure for modules and themes.
