Axis Communications, Chelmsford, Mass., announced that the official exam for the Axis Certification Program has gone live and is open to all security professionals who aim to validate their competence and skills in IP video surveillance. Integrators, resellers and end users interested in becoming an Axis Certified Professional can register online to take the exam at any local testing center offered by Prometric, a global provider of testing and assessment services.

Once a participant passes the advanced test, they will be granted the Axis Certified Professional designation, which validates that they are well-versed in the latest network video technologies, solutions and Axis products, as well as best-practice design and implementation techniques. Upon certification, participants will also earn Axis’ global stamp of endorsement.

“The prospect of having a formal certification process of this caliber lends immediate credence and benefits the video training efforts of integrators,” said Lance Holloway, director technology strategy, Stanley Convergent Security Solutions. “We hope to take full advantage of this program.”
