In this section, we will explain the different paths to get certified in eMagiz. These paths will include an overview of the pre-requisites.
Should you have any questions, please get in touch with academy@emagiz.com.

1. Certification path

The road to become a certified eMagiz user is displayed in the picture below. For all new users, the path starts with an 1-day Crash course training. After this training session, users can start to work in eMagiz guided by experienced users. The hands-on or Action Based learning approach is the preferred way to learn eMagiz in all of his capabilities. For every hands-on period, there are Microlearnings available that contain short learnings that will help to realize integrations in eMagiz. There are optional training sessions that will help users to include formal training into the program. Implementation partners of eMagiz will recommend the optimal path for every user and client.

1.1 Role specifics

eMagiz recognizes three different roles: Developer, Architect and Support Engineer. All roles will have to start with the Crash course training. The microlearnings contain modules that each indicate for what role that specific module is. Each Microlearning level contains a home page with that indication, so that Architects, Developers and Support Engineers can select the subjects they require for the active participation in the project/client/partner. eMagiz provides Basic certification for all three roles, and Advanced certification for Developers only.
