Even more sales tools to
grow your Milestone business

What's new

 New ways to prove
your Milestone expertise

 

Your staff don’t have to attend a training course in order to get a certification. If your experienced staff have
the necessary knowledge and skills to pass the certification exam, they can simply take the online exam without
attending the course. You can then use your training dollars on sending less experienced staff to training courses.
Our new online certification tests also make it easier and cheaper for you to certify more of your staff.

Meet the all-new Learning & Performance ProgramREAD MORE >

The new Training & Certification Program features completely revamped classes that provide a more hands-on training experience. The Program also introduces all new certifications that test your expertise with designing, installing, and configuring Milestone-based systems, rather than your attendance at a training course. 

What you need to knowREAD MORE >

We are separating training and certification. 
You no longer have to sign up for a training course in order to take the certification exam. This also means that attending a training class does not guarantee a certification. To be certified, each participant must take, and pass, the certification exam.

All certification exams will be administered online. 
The new online certification exams save money and travel expenses for your staff. It makes it easier for you to certify multiple employees and to schedule exams at a time convenient for you. 

The new Certifications

Milestone Certified Integration Technician (MCIT)
This replaces the Milestone Advanced Certification, and is a requirement for becoming a Gold Partner. To get this certification, you must pass the online certification test. The new course, Milestone Technical Configuration, Level 1 prepares participants to pass this certification test.

Milestone Certified Integration Engineer (MCIE)
This replaces the Milestone Expert Certification, and you must have two employees with this certification in order to become a Platinum Partner. To get this certification, you must pass the online certification test. The Milestone Technical Configuration, Level 2 class prepares participants to take this test.

Milestone Certified Design Engineer (MCDE)
This is an all new certification that proves your ability to design Milestone-based surveillance solutions. To get this certification, you must pass the certification test. The MCDE certification is a requirement to attain Gold and Platinum Partner status. The new Milestone Solution Design class prepares participants to take this certification test.

What about the Professional Certification?

Please note that these changes only apply to the Advanced level certifications. The Certification Program for Professional products remains unchanged.
