First Class: NVIDIA Introduces Generative AI Certification

by Craig Clawson

NVIDIA is offering new certifications in generative AI to enable developers to establish technical credibility in this important domain. 

Generative AI is revolutionizing industries worldwide, yet there’s a critical skills gap and need to uplevel employees to harness the technology more fully. 

Available for the first time from NVIDIA, this new certification enables developers, career professionals, and others to validate and showcase their generative AI skills and expertise. Our new certification program introduces two associate-level generative AI certifications, focusing on proficiency in large language models and multimodal workflow skills. 

“Generative AI has moved to center stage as governments, industries and organizations everywhere look to harness its transformative capabilities,” NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang recently said. 

The certification will become available starting at GTC, where in-person attendees can also access recommended training to prepare for a certification exam.

“Organizations in every industry need to increase their expertise in this transformative technology,” said Greg Estes, vice president of developer programs at NVIDIA. “Our goals are to assist in upskilling workforces, sharpen the skills of qualified professionals, and enable individuals to demonstrate their proficiency in order to gain a competitive advantage in the job market.”

The first two gen AI certifications are entry-level credentials designed to validate foundational skills for developing, integrating and maintaining applications using generative AI, large language models and multimodal models with NVIDIA solutions.
