Symantec Certified Specialist Programme (SCS)

Symantec Certified SpecialistThe first step to validate technical knowledge and competency is to become a Symantec Certified Specialist (SCS) based on your specific area of product expertise with Symantec products.

Although each product varies in complexity and depth, all SCS certification exams are created specifically for customers and cover core elements measuring technical knowledge against factors such as installation, configuration, deployment, product management & administration, and day-to-day maintenance.

To achieve this level of certification, candidates must pass one proctored SCS exam based on a combination of Symantec training material, commonly referenced product documentation, and real-world job tasks.
