Service companies and individuals around the world have approached us to provide services to customers using the Papyrus Document System. To ensure that this is delivered by professionals with a high level of expertise, we have established the ISIS Papyrus Certification Program.


ISIS Papyrus Academy

The mission of this program is to develop and maintain the standards of professionalism using the Papyrus Document System.



Application and Fees:

Choose one of the dates below and contact ISIS Papyrus for your personal training plan to gain the required knowledge. The application fee for each certification is € 500/USD 600.

Certifications can also be held on demand at any ISIS Papyrus location offering trainings or at customer site, provided appropriate facilities are available. Please contact ISIS Marketing for arranging additional appointments.


Certification Maintenance Requirements:

Due to the dynamic environment in which individuals are certified as Papyrus Professionals, it

is imperative for them to remain current with the enhancements and extensions of the Papyrus Platform. Therefore each certified Papyrus Professional is required to attend one update class every year and to be recertified every 3 years.


Prerequisites for the certification renewal are the attendance of the 'Papyrus Upgrade Workshop' and the 'Papyrus Experts Workshop/Module 1 & 2'. Thereafter, recertification can be achieved at any certification date.
