What is a “SUSE Certification” ?

The intention of Professional certification (computer technology) is to establish that an individual holding a certification is technically qualified to hold certain types of position within the field. Certification is often used in the professions of information technology industry (Source Wikipedia).

SUSE Certification is a software vendor professional certification that demonstrates successful completion of SUSE Exams. Majority of SUSE Training Courses prepare you to take its examination.
