Symantec rolls out integrated certification program

Symantec Corp. is combining its technical credentials for data protection, high availability and security into a single program that covers the Cupertino, Calif.-based company’s product portfolio.

The Symantec Certification Program is designed to help IT professionals strengthen their professional development by earning technical credentials for the Symantec products and acquire the technical competency to ensure that the technology is being used to its maximum benefit.

“Certifications are an important step for organizations looking to maintain a talented IT team with high-calibre credentials and technical knowledge needed to solve complex IT issues and avoid system downtime that could result in loss of business. At the same time, IT staffers can leverage these credentials to advance their career and distinguish themselves among their peers in the industry,” said Lee Futch, group product manager with Symantec.

The program introduces new certification exams, exam preparation materials, and an online Certification Forum to help certification candidates network with certified professionals.

Exams vary in complexity and depth, but do cover core elements like installation, configuration, product administration, and day-to-day maintenance. Exams are computer-based and delivered at more than 4,000 Prometric testing centres globally.
