Certification Paths for Every Role

MicroStrategy’s certifications are recognized throughout the industry for their rigorous learning paths and hands-on final projects. A MicroStrategy certification will validate and promote your expertise inside and outside your company.

  • Digital Badges - After completing your certification, you’ll receive a digital badge to post on social media to highlight your accomplishment, and you can be included in MicroStrategy’s Registry of Certified Professionals.
  • Analyst Pass - The Analyst Pass supports three foundational certifications. Every MicroStrategy practitioner should earn their Analyst Certification (ANL) as a baseline, and then explore the Data Scientist (SCI) and Developer (DVL) paths to deepen their knowledge.
  • Architect Pass - With the Architect Pass, you can validate your expertise and pursue advanced certifications for specialized Intelligence Center roles. With on-demand access to the Expert.Now service, you'll be empowered with the technology, technique, and support you need to quickly build and deploy intelligence apps across the enterprise.
