The Smartsheet work execution platform is helping teams improve collaboration, manage work in real-time, automate workflows, and deploy new processes at scale. But, not everyone has time to learn everything there is to know about our features and functionality.
Within each of our customer organizations, there are experts who play a key role in empowering their teams to use Smartsheet effectively. They are defined by the various ways that they elevate and influence how their organization uses and implements Smartsheet.
Internally, these people may provide ad-hoc training, troubleshoot challenges, or demonstrate potential use cases. Externally, they may participate in Smartsheet training, attend a Smartsheet User Group, or participate in the Smartsheet Early Adopter Program.
And those who choose to go the extra mile also become certified users through the Smartsheet Certification Program.
The Smartsheet Certification Program provides a confirmation of skill proficiency with the Smartsheet platform, enabling certified users to market their abilities both internally to their team, and externally within their networks.
Certified users hold a variety of job titles ranging from project managers to developers, marketing managers to operations managers, and more. The common thread? They are driven to develop their Smartsheet skill sets. No matter what your role, certification can help you positively impact the way you and your team use Smartsheet.
Interested in becoming a Smartsheet certified user? The Smartsheet Certification Program offers two exams: Product Certification and Solution Certification. Learn about the two certification offerings and how you can prepare for them below.
Product Certification is offered year-round as part of the Center of Excellence, your ongoing training resource for everything Smartsheet. Product Certification can confirm for you that you have knowledge of the features and functions within the core Smartsheet application as well as the ability to apply these capabilities in a way that maximizes your impact.
If you would like to purchase Product Certification a-la-carte, without a subscription to the Center of Excellence, you can do so here.
Smartsheet offers two different types of Solution Certification: Process Management and Project Management. Solution Certification is currently only offered in-person at the Smartsheet ENGAGE global customer conference. Passing this exam certifies your ability to create an end-to-end solution in Smartsheet within a four-hour time window from a set of business pain points and project requirements.
Solution Certification can confirm that you understand how to take and use Smartsheet to build complex solutions for you and your team and empower you to optimize your everyday workflows.
