Parallels Cloud University Programs: Level Definitions

Just like academic course structures, Parallels Cloud University programs are brought to you in tiered levels of learning. These definitions are intended to clarify how different levels of certification apply to one’s ability to utilize these skills in the “real world”. This structure gives you the opportunity to fully explore the breadth and depth of any given Parallels product with a series of training programs, and demonstrate your knowledge and understanding through certification exams.

Please note that for technical focused levels (201 and 301), certification at the previous level is required to become certified at the next level. For example, Expert Level 301 training and certification is available for those who have already completed the Professional Level 201 training. Please let our training team know if you feel that there are special circumstances that apply to you that would qualify you to “test-through” to a higher level.
