Zededa launches Edge Academy certification program
Zededa also announced the launch of its new certification program for customers, partners and employees. The Zededa Certification Program (ZCP) is part of Zededa Edge Academy and includes a series of exams to validate the user’s skills.
Kevin Freitas, Senior Director of Edge Academy, says, “We’re thrilled to lift up our Edge Academy offering with our newest certification program. Qualifying our customers, partners and employees is key in driving forward best practices and distinguishing Zededa experts in edge computing and orchestration.”
The first exam is the Zededa Edge Orchestration Professional, which tests a user’s skills, knowledge and abilities.
Freitas continues, “Next, we will design and develop a new certification offering targeted at a wider audience to drive a fundamental understanding of edge orchestration and management industry concepts. We believe this is a critical step for first adopters of the edge and a must-have in the ZCP.”
Zededa says the ZCP program is free for a limited time and those interested in certification can register for an exam date via a global network of proctors.
