The Certification Team Announces a Second Level of Symantec Certification!
Symantec offers a second level of certification called the Symantec Certified Professional (SCP)
, which became available July 2012. The SCP level will have several paths to validate your technical competencies based on specific areas of solution expertise with multiple Symantec products.
In partnership with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the new SCP program will include a Symantec Cloud Security Essentials training and certification path
to certify technical competencies of cloud technologies and cloud security, including knowledge of how to implement Symantec products to secure confidential data in the cloud.
Note: This SCP program consists of a technical exam created specifically to measure technical understanding of and competency with cloud security solutions and related concepts, including Symantec-specific as well as non-product-specific solutions. Test candidates should have a minimum of 6 months experience with assessing, architecting, or implementing cloud security solutions, and should be familiar with the course content covered in the 3rd day of the Symantec Cloud Security Essentials (SCSE) course. Additionally, candidates should have a strong knowledge of the industry standard white papers and other resources outlined in the SCP Cloud Security 1.0 Exam Study Guide.
Upcoming Exam Releases
In 2013, Symantec plans to release the following new Symantec Certified Specialist (SCS) and Symantec Certified Professional (SCP) exams:
Legacy & New Exams
Many of the Symantec certification exams will be replaced by a newer product version of the exam as technology and trends continue to evolve. Legacy exams will still be available on Prometric’s website, as Symantec recognizes that legacy product versions will continue to hold their value in the marketplace as long as there is demand from the industry.
To prepare for certification exams, we encourage you to review the Training Paths
and their associated Certification Exams
for more information. Additionally study of the course content, exam objectives, sample questions, product documentation, and on-the-job experience, are also recommended. Be cautioned that attendance in a training course does not guarantee passage of a certification exam.
