The ISDA Certification is not for everyone; member applicants must qualify for the certification. The certification process requires a test of knowledge and verification of skill combined with experience in the industry. The ISDA certification cannot be purchased; it must be earned.

Many of the training organizations misuse the word certification; most of the training offered in the industry is not certification. It is training to a certificate.  Although a training certificate is valuable, it is not certification as defined by the credentialing organizations, which are the standards in all other professions.

Membership costs $75 per year, and there are no requirements to join. Group rates are available; contact us for more information.
