Certification Overview: This level 3 certification assesses your ability to design and build a solution using Pyramid based on a specific use case. Your Pyramid knowledge and skills will be tested, ranging from translating the use case requirements to a data flow; building a subsequent model and training the model in order to create an effective Dashboard and Publication; utilising multiple Discover Objects. You will therefore be drawing upon your skills and knowledge across the following Pyramid modules:
Below are the steps you should follow in order to successfully complete the Level 3 Solution Design certification and present your solution to a panel of Pyramid consultants via a live online session.
Step 1) Access Pyramid training environment: By clicking on the ‘Take this course’ button at the top of this page, you will be sent login details for accessing the training environment where you can start building your Pyramid solution. The use case solution must be developed on this Pyramid training environment provided and NOT on you own Pyramid instance.
Step 2) Follow use case brief: You will need to download the use case PDF in order to understand the requirements for your solution, you can find this download under the ‘Certification Resources’ section below. This PDF will also include guidance on the scoring system.
Step 3) Download training materials: Below you can download the data files necessary to build your solution, as well as any visual materials necessary for your Dashboard (Logos, imagery etc). These can be found under the ‘Certification Resources’ section.
Step 4) Build your solution: Now you can start to build your solution inside the Pyramid environment, following the use case documentation provided below.
Step 5) Complete multiple choice assessment: Before booking your assessment slot, you must complete the questions located at the bottom of this course page, you can attempt this assessment at any time, but we recommend you do this once you have completed your solution in the Pyramid environment as some of the questions are linked to the completed solution. Your score from these questions, plus the grade you receive from your live presentation will both contribute to your overall pass mark for this certification.
Step 6) Book your presentation slot: From the events page, you can book a slot to present your Level 3 Solution Design Pyramid Solution. These slots are regularly occurring but are limited in number, so make sure to book your place. You will then be emailed a link for your desired time and date.
Evaluation: Your certification solution is graded based on successful completion of the assessment and fulfilment of the use case requirements outlined in the documentation. You will receive personalised feedback by the panel of Pyramid consultants at the end of your presentation slot; and your results will be confirmed shortly after. Each submission is evaluated on a case by case basis and your explanation of your approach during the presentation is also considered when calculating your overall grading. Further information on the scoring criteria for the solution is outlined in the use case PDF.
