  1. I take it this would be in addition to something like the ArcGIS Desktop Associate Exam? As an ATP instructor, you must possess an ArcGIS Desktop Associate Certification in order to teach the ArcGIS Desktop classes. I would think that Instructors would need the same skills as someone that would take the Technical Certification Exam. I wonder if both of these certifications are accepted or if you must take them both individually.
