Inside the WAA Certification Program

Jim Novo, The Drilling Down Project

Whether you are looking to hire a web analyst or be hired as one, a formal, official endorsement would go a long way in the interview process. Web Analytics Association's Certification Test is designed to do just that. It provides a common reference point for understanding the depth and breadth of knowledge in the field for both practitioners and employers. That's great. But how was the test developed? What's in the test? Who should consider taking the test? And what additional value will a WAA Certified Web Analyst bring to the table as an employee? Using examples and the actual results of 4 "Test the Certification Test" trials with actual web analysts, Jim will reveal what types of people tend to get high (and low) scores on the Certification Test, and why employers should be interested in the Certification effort. Got Questions? Get answers about the program during the open Q & A portion of this session.
