Certified for success

Which UCC certifications are best for building a successful practice?

June 14, 2019

Certified for success
Technical certifications are an ideal way for solution providers to maintain a competitive edge and position themselves as true experts in certain IT specialty areas.
Certifications offer several competitive advantages:
  • Evidence of technical proficiency and high professional standards
  • Self-confidence in selling your work effectively to customers
  • Credibility with customers, coworkers and colleagues
  • Greater marketability
The best certifications for UCC
Many of the leading UCC vendors—RingCentral, Poly, 8x8, Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Cisco Teams—all offer certification training in their respective technologies. If you’re planning to build a UCC practice, chances are you’re going to be recommending solutions from these vendors, so it’s a good idea to invest in their certification programs. 
A useful general certification
For over 30 years, AVIXA has offered the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) program, which is recognized worldwide as the leading AV professional credential. Certifications are offered in 3 areas: CTS General, CTS Design and CTS Installation.
All three certifications are ANSI accredited under the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) ISO/IEC 17024:2012 General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification Schemes of Persons program. Specific information about the programs is available by contacting certification@avixa.org.
The close connection between pro AV and UCC today makes this general AV certification a valuable asset.
