Siemens Power Academy Certifications are a great way for engineering professionals to validate skills and demonstrate knowledge and proficiencies in a competitive landscape. Our certifications also provide a means of common measurement for evaluating that knowledge. The mission of Siemens Power Academy Certification is to:
Provide a reliable, valid and valued model of training power system engineers
Provide a fair, repeatable and consistent method of assessing skills and knowledge
Develop a community of professionals who understand the need for certification in the power system industry.
About the program
With the pace of change in today’s energy landscape, continued skill development and knowledge acquisition provides the footing for the continuous journey of becoming a trusted resource. To guide you in this journey, our certification programs combine requirements of training/education, experience and validation. These certifications create training roadmaps that assist both learner and employer with faster on-boarding of new hires, provide solid milestones for employee development plans and serve as a mechanism for knowledge transfer and succession planning.
Siemens Power Academy TD – NA has developed Associate, Advanced and Expert Certifications, which may be earned in the three curriculums described in the following section. For each certification level, students must complete several required courses, and also complete a specified number of electives in their area of interest. More so than a series of individual courses, these progressive certification programs ensure foundational knowledge acquisition and overcome specific knowledge gaps. Students progress from understanding and performing technical tasks at the Associate level to independent analysis at the Advanced level, and culminate at the Expert level certification with synthesis and evaluation of abstract concepts, and judgment about information and validity of ideas.
If you are seeking certification, please speak with one of our education staff coordinators. Together, we will identify which certification program is right for you. To map out your plan to successful completion of the certification requirements, we will review our course offerings, as well as your work experience and testing requirements. Once your training roadmap is planned, you can enroll in your first course and begin training. Course testing can be scheduled up to six months after your completion of the course. All testing is completed through our online learning management system and grades are provided in a formal transcript. Upon successful completion, you enroll in your next course and continue this process until all requirements are met.
As power engineering programs disappear from the academic landscape, one way engineers can demonstrate value, skills, and competencies in their field of expertise is to continue lifelong learning. They can further show their professional commitment by earning certification in their area of expertise.
To acknowledge and certify an engineer’s professional development achievements, Siemens Power Academy TD – NA has created the Associate, Advanced and Expert Certifications in the following three curriculums:
