We believe that ongoing training is a key element to staying up to date with the newest development of the Avaloq Banking Suite. Due to that, our certificates are valid up to a specific release and certified professionals are required to complete Accreditation courses to gain accreditation for new releases and thus to keep their certificates valid.
 

Accreditation rules

How to renew your certificate
Every certificate is valid for two years.
In order to keep your certificate valid, you need to earn 120 accreditation points.
Accreditation points are earned by completing accreditation courses. 120 points equal 4 course days.
Two of the courses must be Delta courses and the other two courses can be of your choice.

Example

2 Delta courses
Delta 2018 H1
Delta 2018 H2

2 course days of your choice
1-day course: Accreditation: Responsive Forms / Webforms (RSP)
1-day course: Accreditation: Person object modelling (POM)

or

2-day course: Accreditation: Mastering advanced Avaloq Script Techniques
 

Validity of certificates

Up until mid-August, certificates were only issued to be valid until 31 December 2019. This was done because Academy planned to introduce a new certificate design. This new design is now gradually being rolled out.

In Q4 2019, everyone who has both a valid certificate and is eligible for certificate renewal will receive a new certificate with the new design. This certificate will be valid from 1 January 2020 until the remainder of the two years. Please find below three different scenarios that shed some light on the rollout procedure.

Scenario 1
You passed your certification exam on 1 July 2019. You received a certificate valid from 1 July 2019 to 31 December 2019. In Q4 2019, you will receive a new certificate, valid from 1 January 2020 to 1 July 2021.
(People who passed their certification exam in August 2019 will receive a certificate with the new design, which will be valid for two years.)

Scenario 2
You passed your certification exam on 1 July 2019. You received a certificate valid from 1 July 2019 to 31 December 2019. In Q4 2019, you will receive a new certificate, valid from 1 January 2020 to 1 July 2021.

Scenario 3
You have fewer than 120 accreditation points and were given a temporary certificate valid from 1 July 2019 until 31 December 2019. Once you have earned 120 accreditation points, you will receive a new certificate valid from 1 July 2020 to 1 July 2021.
