Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Although not mandatory, certification is available for technicians who pass an examination administered by the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP). One ICCP certification related to data processing is the certified computing professional (CCP) designation. It also offers upper-level credentials such as Big Data professional, certified data professional, and certified data scientist. Even though employers do not formally require the CCP or other credentials, they provide favorable proof of accomplishment to employers when hiring or promoting technicians.
