Are You Certified as a Data Scientist?

Certifications help our resumes stand out. They can also help us during the interview process, and (most importantly) they keep us up-to-date on our skills.

We recently discussed data science certifications.

Here are the top three:

Senior Data Scientist (SDS)

Taking the top spot on our list, the Data Science Council of America’s (DASCA) Senior Data Scientist (SDS) certification is a standout choice for experienced professionals aiming to excel in the data science field.

Data Scientist Certification Associate Level

The next choice on my list is a newer entry from DataCamp. Widely regarded as one of the best places to learn data skills, their Data Scientist Certification is a fantastic option for anyone taking a DataCamp course in data science.

Principal Data Scientist (PDS)

Taking the third spot on my list, the DASCA Principle Data Scientist (PDS) certification is perfect for highly experienced data scientists who want to establish themselves as influential leaders and innovators in the field.
