HDI Certification Standards

The competencies for HDI Certifications are identified and approved by the HDI International Certification Standards Committee. It is the committee’s intent to recognize the breadth of knowledge required, document the needed skills, and provide leadership to the support industry on the meaning of certification in customer service and technical support organizations.

The HDI Certification Standards are open standards that are independent of any training curriculum. HDI Certification objectives are published to allow organizations to benefit from the core competencies identified by our International Certification Standards Committees. The HDI Standards may be purchased separately. HDI members may download the standards for free.

Professional Certifications
