The Certification Program’s mission is to grow the OneStream community of technical professionals.

The certification team supports this by developing exams that align to the product and course content, therefore directly contributing to the growth and identification of qualified implementers.


You might not have met the Certification Team yet, so let me introduce us.

The team consists of the Certification Manager, David Lickwar and Kristina Paul, the Certification Project Manager. Additionally, Brandye Barrington is a shared resource with Systems & Infrastructure.  





Why should you get Certified? There are plenty of reasons why you should! Becoming certified can lead to job stability, salary increases, greater credibility, and promotions.
