EMC partners can work toward becoming a platform engineer. In this track, participants will gain the knowledge and skills to successfully maintain and support the deployment of EMC information infrastructure solutions. As opposed to the technology architect track, the platform engineer track will assume a more hands on role in the solution deployment process. Engineers will have a complete overview of the solution deployment and maintenance, offering recommendations for improvements and amendments, assisting in fixing any problems that may arise while still following customer requirements, and maintaining not just the solution, but also the relationship with customers in the process.
This track is very straightforward, with a single associate certification (Information Storage and Management) and five specialist certifications: Celerra, CLARiiON, Centera, VNX, and Symmetrix. Each requires candidates to pass only one exam. Training options are available to ensure your complete knowledge of concepts and terminology before completing the exam. Job experience working in the given environment can also benefit your test experience.
The benefit of earning multiple certifications in the Platform Engineer track is that you will gain exposure to multiple environments, being able to apply concepts and skills in various situations in different environments that may involve certain requirements and fundamentals. Although participants have no limit to the number of certifications he/she can earn, adding multiple to a resume can ensure a very successful career as a platform engineer.
