Symantec Certified Specialist (SCS) - The first step to validate technical knowledge and competency is to become a Symantec Certified Specialist (SCS) based on your specific area of product expertise with Symantec products. Although each product varies in complexity and depth, all SCS certification exams are created specifically for customers and cover core elements measuring technical knowledge against factors such as installation, configuration, deployment, product management & administration, and day-to-day maintenance. To achieve this level of certification, candidates must pass one proctored SCS exam based on a combination of Symantec training material, commonly referenced product documentation, and real-world job tasks. Certification is optional for partners and employees, and is not a requirement to achieve Symantec Partner Program designation and benefits.
Symantec Certified Professional (SCP) - The second step to proving technical knowledge and competency is by becoming a Symantec Certified Professional (SCP) based on a specific area of solution expertise with multiple Symantec products. The Symantec Certified Professional (SCP) program validates skills and technical competencies necessary for Symantec professionals to design, architect, and implement multiple solutions in data protection, high availability, and/or security environments. To achieve this level of certification, candidates must pass two or more SCS exams, pass one SCP exam, and/or provide proof of the program’s required third party vendor-neutral industry recognized prerequisite.
