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 € 600 / USD 800. 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 Papyrus Marketing for arranging additional appointments.

The next higher certification level can be acquired as long as the applicant is certified (see the maintenance requirements below) and the prerequisites for that level are fulfilled. Otherwise the re-certification has to be passed first.

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 renew the certification every 3 years.

Prerequisite is the attendance of the 'Papyrus Upgrade Workshop'. Thereafter, re-certification can be achieved at any certification date which will renew all certification levels acquired until that date by the applicant.
