Onsite training

Attending BCP onsite is an immersive 2 day training and certification event. By attending an onsite offering, you’ll have the opportunity to work closely with smaller groups and have the focus time to dive deeper into case studies. You’ll also have 2 dedicated days to focus on what you need to optimize your Box implementation and have in-person access to peers and Box experts to bounce ideas and share experiences. Additionally, you’ll experience the Box culture firsthand during our Box lunch and dedicated BCP happy hour!

 

Certification

Earning the Box Certified Professional credential highlights you as a Box expert within your organization. It validates that you’ve met a defined benchmark of understanding how to optimize Box using Box best practices. Additionally, it demonstrates your ability to guide decision making as it relates to administering Box and expanding its operational use, while also planning effective communication and training for your end users.

 

Following the completion of training, BCP participants will gain access to the online, multiple-choice certification exam for three (3) months. Learn more about the exam in our FAQs!

Continue the journey

We want your BCP journey to continue beyond the initial certification process. All BCPers will be invited to participate in a new online community experience. Additionally, a semi-annual certification summit will be made available exclusively to existing Box Certified Professionals! This invite only summit will be held virtually and potentially in-person in conjunction with BoxWorks if scheduling allows. We’ll use this time as an opportunity to share updates to the Box product roadmap as well as enhanced sessions focused on Box Advocacy, Platform and API, AMA sessions with members of the Box executive team, and more!
