SIAM Certification

EXIN understands the growing demand for training and certification on SIAM. The SIAM certification offered by EXIN and BCS is vendor-neutral, recognized worldwide, and based on the e-Competence Framework. This is the only SIAM certification program available worldwide.

It provides practitioners with the opportunity to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. There are many certified ITSM professionals these days, but few of them have specific skills in the area of service integration. SIAM certification helps organizations reduce costs and improve the quality of their services which result in improved customer satisfaction and loyalty.
