Directory of Esri-Certified Individuals

Have you heard? Certified individuals can now choose to be included in our new online Directory. This first phase includes name, country, and certifications achieved. Customers and potential employers can easily search the Directory to find candidates with a relevant certification for their project needs and open positions.

If you don’t see yourself in the Directory and would like to, you can opt in by updating your certification record. Feel free to e-mail the team questions or suggestions about the Directory to or share with the Esri Technical Certification group on LinkedIn.
