Data Science Central offers a data science certification to active practitioners. We have now extented the circle of colleges, organizations and companies that meet our standards for automated qualification. If you belong to one of the organizations listed below, you can join our data science certification group, and you will automatically be accepted.
We are now at 200 certified data scientists: click here to view their profiles. Certification requires 2 years of experience, and a quantitative college degree. Acceptance is based on your bio. We check your LinkedIn profile when your Data Science Central profile does not provide enough information. If your profile has very little information and we can't find / identify you on LinkedIn or on other professional networks, it is impossible for us to know if you meet our standards. In this case, you are not accepted or rejected: your status is pending.
Reviews are performed by Dr. Vincent Granville, a leading data scientist with 25 years of experience across multiple industries and disciplines (data engineering, statistics, computer science, data science, business analytics, architecture etc.)

We plan on adding more passerelles, accepting practitioners certified from selected industry programs (including our own data science apprenticeship), as well as graduates with college degrees strongly related to data science - where students must complete a number of projects involving real life data, both small and large. Data scientists working for selected companies will also be accepted. As a business or organization, to partner with us in our passerrelle initiative and allow your students or employees to be automatically qualified, contact us at vincentg@datasciencecentral: we will check if your company, university, certification, or program meets our standards, and get back to you.
Finally, we spend time verifying profile information in detail, for each candidate. Since our certification is free, we have no incentive in accepting candidates that do not meet our high standards. Looking at the profiles of our current certified data scientists can help you decide if this certification is good for you. To apply, join our data science certification group.
