Certification

Exam basics

Certifications are obtained online on Automation Academy in the form of an end-to-end assignment. The certificate will be provided if the passing grade is achieved and a trainee meets all the prerequisites.

The Solutions Consultant training certification consists of a 30-minute product overview presentation to the trainer. If the presentation meets the required standards, the trainer will issue a certification.

How certifications expire

Workfusion can make a decision to let a certification expire. In those cases, the Academy will notify all students and partner managers three months before the certification expires.

The key reasons for letting certifications expire are:

  • Release major version of WF software
  • Release new major update of particular course or certification process
