Certification process


As a Wolters Kluwer consulting partner, we believe your experience and existing expertise should be recognized. Before beginning the training program, we will meet with you to assess your overall business goals, capture your expertise and existing skill sets, and prescribe the best and quickest path to your desired certification levels.

Dates for courses, course types, assigned testing, and options for advancement will all be determined through these assessments.


In-person or virtual instructor-led training on our enterprise legal management solutions will include deep product tracks on Passport and TyMetrix 360⁰ and their application(s) and modules. The second and third phases of the training programs will include additional product tracks, technical and coding courses, and implementation and best practices.

A written, lab-based, or participation exam will be included to ensure you have acquired the necessary skills to progress through the levels.

Additional levels of certification can be reached through on-the-job experience. Each role-based certification level varies and is based on the amount of time and expertise gained through the experience working on active client projects.
