Programa de Certificación Señalización Digital en Español (DSCE)

The Digital Signage Certified Expert program provides a full understanding of all the elements of digital signage and the interconnected technologies that produce the images seen on screen.

Digital signage is the fastest growing segment of the commercial AV, content creation and advertising industries. It appears quite simple at first glance but becomes a tangled web of interconnected technologies acting together to produce the images we see on screen. The challenge is one of immersion and full understanding of all the elements of digital signage.

Industry leaders recognizing the need to provide clarity for those entering digital signage agreed that an impartial, agnostic and vendor neutral training and certification program would provide a platform for continuing education and professional and business growth. The Digital Signage Certified Expert (DSCE) program addresses this need.
