Axis Certification Program Testing Goes Live

Axis Communications has 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. Those 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 that strengthens both their personal and their company’s credentials.

“We are very pleased to see Axis Communications maintain its role as a security product innovator.  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.”

The 50-question exam was developed specifically for system designers and technical sales professionals.

“Since the network camera was invented by Axis 15 years ago, the IP-based video surveillance market has grown rapidly as more and more end-users opt to move away from old analog technology,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications. “But with the ever-increasing demand for the newest IP technology comes a responsibility of vendors, system designers and integrators to ensure that network-based surveillance systems are properly designed, installed and maintained.”

Axis Communications’ Academy offers a variety of classroom and Web-based trainings along with tutorials and guides to help individuals prepare for the exam. Additionally, the Axis training team will launch a one-day, instructor-led Axis Certification Program prep-course for those wishing to brush up on their IP video knowledge before the exam. This course is expected to begin in January.

“The Axis Certification Program is a significant step forward in our commitment to ensuring that the end-user gets the most value out of their investment in security technology,” Nilsson said.

The certification test is currently available in the U.S. and Canada at the price of $150. For more details about the certification program visit
