RSA Proven Professional Certification Program


The RSA Proven Professional Certification Program establishes a scalable framework that reflects conceptual and practical role-based knowledge of RSA products.  This certification program establishes a standard of excellence within a governance model that validates the competency of the user.  The certification framework is as follows. 


RSA’s Proven Professional Certification Program is based on real-world experience with our industry-leading security solutions.  Each RSA product certification has its own unique path to excellence and is based on role-specific practical and conceptual knowledge.  Each certification level is more in-depth and requires greater expertise and product knowledge.    

Important:  Be sure to note the expiration date for each exam.  Associate level exams do not expire, but subsequent exams carry a two-year lifespan.  In order to advance to a higher-level exam, the previous level exam must still be active.


Associate Certification

RSA’s Proven Professional Associate Certification is the baseline certification for all follow-on certifications.  This certification establishes a fundamental understanding and knowledge of an RSA product.  This is the first step moving to more advanced, role-based concepts and tasks.  


Specialist Certification

Each Specialist Certification is role-based and focuses on practical understanding of a product and industry best practices.  This certification requires recertification every two years due to product maturity, market evolution, and industry changes.    


Expert Certification

The Expert Certification is also role-based, focusing on product and industry evolution considering advanced-level practical and conceptual knowledge of RSA’s products.  This certification also requires recertification every two years.      


Master Certification

The Master Certification is the highest-level certification level available from RSA.  This certification requires subject matter expertise across multiple RSA products.  This certification requires recertification every two years. 

Note: Not all certification levels are available for all products.
