Advanced Data Science Professional


Created by the Alliance for Data Science Professionals, the Advanced Data Science
Professional is a new certificate providing formal recognition of a member’s qualifications, professional training and experience within the field of data science.

Assessed against industry-wide standards, set by the Alliance, RSS members are able to gain this new form of recognition by evidencing they meet particular areas of skills and knowledge, as well as their level of responsibility within data science. Whilst those awarded the certificate will not be required to pay any additional upgrade fees, there is a yearly charge of holding the certificate that will be added to your membership fee. This fee will be confirmed in September, following the AGM meeting.
