Parallels RAS Certification Badge

Parallels RAS Digital Badges: Verify and Demonstrate Your Skills 

As virtual desktops, end-user computing (EUC) and cloud infrastructure technologies continue to evolve, so do the skills IT professionals require to successfully deploy and manage virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and application delivery projects. In addition, skills that allow managing private, hybrid, and public cloud deployments are getting more relevant to the job market as the public cloud matures and becomes more affordable.

Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) exams certify a large set of skills for application, desktop delivery, and VDI, whether deployed on-premises, hybrid, or on the public cloud. Parallels RAS certification helps in matching the standard job description requirements for IT professionals, including IT managers, IT architects, systems engineers, and system administrators.

Parallels empower IT professionals to share digitally verified proof of their skill set as soon as they obtain it, extending their professional portfolio. Parallels RAS digital badges display verified information such as the date of issue, type of training provided, and the skillset gained in succeeding in the certification exam.
