Accreditation

OSIsoft accreditation is an offering for registered partners and their employees as an opportunity to differentiate themselves from competitors and make sure they are up to date on both technical and business messaging around the PI System Infrastructure.  The accreditation program is meant for partner employees that have a proven record of accomplishment of both the business and technical aspects around the PI System infrastructure.  Your company profile in the Partner Portal listing will stay up to date with the number of accredited employees so that customers can rest assured that they have picked a partner that is up to date on OSIsoft products and solutions. 

 

To date, there are two accreditations offered by OSIsoft, the PI System Infrastructure Specialist and the PI System Installation Specialist.  All accreditations have requirements for business or technical training, readiness asessments, and an online review held with a business and technical representative from OSIsoft. Additional accreditation topics will be added in 2018.
