Training & Certification

Appian works closely with our partners to ensure that they are thoroughly qualified, trained, and certified in Appian software and best practices. We provide a full range of software options, documentation, methodologies, and reference material for all of our partners.

Appian’s flexible product training is available in the classroom, on-site, and online – making it easy for our partners to stay up-to-date on the latest features of Appian software. Ongoing partner enablement is also provided through pre-Appian World technical training, monthly webinars, and periodic online refresh classes.

We currently offer online certification exams for Appian Certified Application Designer and Appian Certified Plug-in Developer. Partners who have completed training can register for these exams on the Appian Forum community site.

Appian assigns A-Scores to Appian practitioners to help customers identify the resources best-suited to assist with an Appian project or program. A-Scores are a numerical evaluation of individuals within Appian partner organizations, based on these core components:

  • Level of Appian Training & Certification
  • Assessment of overall quality and individual contribution to prior Appian deployments
  • Level of contribution to the Appian community at-large

A-Scores allow our customers to evaluate an individual partner practitioner’s proficiency in Appian technology and methodology, their established quality of delivery, and their degree of involvement in Appian’s customer and partner ecosystem. A-Scores and accompanying information for individual Appian practitioners can be requested via the Appian Forum community site.
