The complete eDiscovery certification overview!

Certificates are a popular means of improving your resume in the world of e-Discovery. When looking on LinkedIn, you will notice that many eDiscovery professionals certify in at least one specialty. Whether it's a vendor-agnostic course like ACED's eDiscovery specialist, or the challenging Relativity Certified Administrator, you will certainly enjoy the advantages of getting certified!

We've scoured the web for every single certificate which is currently available in eDiscovery and have created an overview with what we consider the most essential aspects of every certificate exam or course:

You will notice that it's quite hard to compare the certificates with one another. For example, some certificates might require a 3-day course, while others will allow you to take the exam without any mandatory prerequisites. The pricing is also wildly different, ranging from tens to thousands of dollars.

The purpose of this page is, therefore, not to compare certificates one-on-one but for you to get a full overview of what's out there for the eDiscovery tools that you use on a daily basis, and your amount of experience in the industry.

Happy Browsing!
