First analytics credential in Australia launched

04 May 2017 by Annette Slunjski

Those working in analytics can be IAPA-certified via the first evidence-based Analytics Credential in Australia. The Credential recognises analytics skills and capabilities benchmarked to industry standards.

IAPA has developed a new global Analytics Professional Capability Standard and Credential model. The Standard underpins a world-first model that independently verifies the analytics capability level of an individual and proves they can apply the capability in their professional environment. The evidence-based Analytics Credentials provide recognition of an individual’s experience, knowledge and skills gained through professional practice in the workplace.

The Credentials are available exclusively as part of paid individual or corporate IAPA membership.

Why apply to be IAPA-Certified via Credential?

For those working in analytics and data, this independently verified credential attests to your level of skill on-the-job. Past levels of study are not specifically taken into consideration in awarding a credential. The evidence-based credential allows you to be recognised for the skills and value you bring to your work.

For employers and recruiters, the IAPA-Certified Analytics Credential provides third-party recognition of skills via evidence to improve confidence in the skill level of staff and potential recruits.
