The Value of Digital Signage Certification

The Digital Signage Federation, the Digital Signage Expo and numerous manufacturers, distributors, re-sellers, and end users have partnered with the Digital Signage Experts Group (DSEG) to bring a comprehensive set of certification programs to the digital signage industry. These courses are designed to bring an individual the education they need, from a fundamental level, to in depth technical training in critical areas of digital signage. These certification programs are administered by an independent industry organization and advisory board, to bring a clear educational message and industry recognition for professional achievement.

Industry certifications, like the DSEG suite of programs, offer many tangible benefits to those that choose to attain the certifications, including the following:

  • Industry certifications provide professional credentials and a method of recognizing accomplishments, knowledge level and skills within the industry as well as by the outside world.
  • Certifications establish a path for continuing education and insure that the certification holder is at the forefront of knowledge in their chosen field.
  • Certifications provide a path inside a company for employee development.
  • Embracing certifications improves employee morale, while expanding the skills and value of each person, it also aids in retention of the skilled employees vital to an organization’s prosperity.
  • The result of certifications is improved job performance through increased knowledge and pride in working to an industry recognized standard of knowledge.
  • Certification organizations provide a venue for members to network with other industry professionals fostering a sharing of ideas, techniques, and information that allows for not only personal improvement, but improvement of the industry as a whole.
