Clarification: Training, Standards, Certification

To everyone in the community: there are some questions about how to work with me on the standards, the training, and the certification – so I wish to offer some clarification on these matters.  The simple answer is: YES, I will work with you and your groups.  Please, read on…

If you want to become certified in Data Vault 2.0 you must take the class offered at http://DataVaultCertification.com

For my loyal friends, fans, and followers – here’s the breakdown…

  1. I will continue to call the shots on any changes to Standards in both the Data Vault Model and the Methodology (I will explain in a minute)
  2. I will be happy to authorize individuals and organizations to TEACH the Data Vault.  Read more at: http://DataVaultCertification.com
  3. Certification or Authorization of Mastery must be maintained by a me, just like the standards.   100% of the data modeling standards are documented in my book: Super Charge Your Data Warehouse, available on Amazon.com

Regarding the Standards

I maintain the standards for Data Vault, as I am the author, inventor, and creator of all things Data Vault.

Regarding Training (Authorized Training by 3rd parties)

Authorized Training Partners and the program are described on: http://DataVaultCertification.com

Regarding Certification…

If I approve you for teaching Data Vault Certification Classes then:

  • The training MUST be top notch, the trainer MUST already be certified
  • the trainer MUST have proof of several years of implementation and successes.
  • The trainer MUST have at least two customers with “certified Data Vault Models”.
  • The trainer and organization must be signed up with DataVaultCertification.com

I am just stating that in order to maintain the integrity of the Data Vault Model and Methodology, that I need to set down some serious rules around who, what, when, and why.

Offering certification, is simply one of these areas.
