Training is highly recommended, but not required. The recommended training courses covers many topics tested on the certification exams, however, training alone will not prepare you for the exam. Having the relevant hands-on experience is a key requirement to being successful in passing the exam, in addition to leveraging resources such as exam study guides and recommended training paths on dell.com/certification.
Skill level of exams are intermediate to advanced and individuals should have existing experience with deployment, configuration, and administration on Dell EMC systems. View full exam details here.
Dell EMC certification is a requirement for the Deployment Services Competency. Deployment Services Competency enables partners to deploy Dell EMC hardware with greater expertise, accuracy and efficiency.
Partners with certified individuals gain access to exclusive Dell EMC tools, best practices, and the latest critical technical updates for richer deployment capabilities. This allows partners to expand reach, grow deployment opportunities and increase revenue. Deployment Services Competency also allows partners to opt-out of mandatory deployments for SC Series Storage and is the first step to being eligible to co-deliver ProDeploy deployment services.
