EMC Proven Professional Program Helps Customers and Partners Implement Information Lifecycle Management Solutions HOPKINTON, Mass. – April 22, 2004 – EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage and management, today announced an expansion of its EMC Proven Professional training and certification program to better help customers and partners develop expertise on deploying EMC information lifecycle management solutions.
The EMC Proven Professional certification and training program is the most comprehensive of its kind in the information storage and management industry. It provides customers and partners with specialised skills, detailed knowledge and proven strategies to position, design, implement, manage and maintain an infrastructure for information lifecycle management. The course content, exam and certified status are identical to the training that EMC uses to train its own technical personnel. Certification helps customers enhance productivity and meet service levels, and it helps EMC partners differentiate their capabilities and address new opportunities.
“The enhancements to EMC Proven Professional are the direct result of input from our customers and partners,” said Tom Clancy, Vice President, EMC Global Education and Productivity. “EMC has designed a program that participants can customise to match specific needs, stay current on the latest storage technologies and improve competitive advantage. To date, more than three thousand people have achieved EMC Proven Professional status. As more customers look to manage their information throughout its lifecycle, we expect demand for these training classes to increase dramatically.”
The program has been enhanced to provide even more focused customer and partner training programs with a greater number of sales and technical roles. The EMC Proven Professional curriculum offers four certification paths to customise learning needs: storage administrator, technology architect, customer engineer and implementation engineer. Two pre-sales accreditation tracks are available for reseller partners. With more than 45 instructor-led and 75 e-learning titles, courses enable customers and partners to specialise in relevant subjects for certification and accreditation including business continuity, storage area networks (SANs), network attached storage (NAS) and storage management.
EMC’s educational programs were recently recognised by Training magazine, which named EMC to its Top 100 for 2004 annual listing of the best corporate training programs*. EMC Global Education training is the best way to prepare for EMC Proven Professional exams. Training Centre locations, course schedules and information on registration are available at www.emc.com/certification.
What Partners Are Saying
Mike Malone, President of CTS Professional Services, Inc., said, “Our consultants are our business. Their knowledge and expertise are what drives our success.

Keith Clark, EVP of World-Wide Operations at MTI, said, “Practice exams and quality education are the keys to EMC Proven Professional. The technical training offered by EMC Global Education prepares candidates in a range of EMC specialisations that are highly relevant in the technology industry today.”
Carl Grula, Manager of Professional Services Business Development at Unisys North America, said, “EMC Proven Professional is more than a paper credential; it’s assurance that Unisys is getting the most out of our EMC professional services relationship.
