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:
