The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Specialist track is comprised of three modules that develop skills in AI practices and learning approaches, as well as Neural Network architectures, cell types and activation functions. The final course module consists of a series of lab exercises that require participants to apply their knowledge of the preceding courses in order to fulfill project requirements and solve real world problems. Completion of these courses as part of a virtual or on-site workshop results in each participant receiving an official Digital Certificate of Completion, as well as a Digital Training Badge from Acclaim/Credly.
To achieve the Artificial Intelligence Specialist Certification, Exam AI90.01 must be completed with a passing grade. A Certified Artificial Intelligence Specialist understands how AI practices can be utilized to perform data analysis and autonomous data processing with unprecedented functionality and business value. In addition to a demonstrated proficiency of AI learning approaches and functional designs, the Certified Artificial Intelligence Specialist has comprehensive knowledge of Neural Network architecture models, associated layers and neuron cell types. Those who achieve this certification receive an official Digital Certificate of Excellence, as well as a Digital Certification Badge from Acclaim/Credly, with an account that supports the online verification of certification status.
Module 1: Fundamental Artificial Intelligence
This module provides essential coverage of artificial intelligence and neural networks in easy-to-understand, plain English. The module provides concrete coverage of the primary parts of AI, including learning approaches, functional areas that AI systems are used for and a thorough introduction to neural networks, how they exist, how they work and how they can be used to process information.

Module 3: Artificial Intelligence Lab
In this module, participants are to solve a series of exercises and problems that are designed to test participants’ ability to apply their knowledge of topics covered in previous modules.
Upon completion of this lab, participants will further improve proficiency in AI systems, neural network architectures, and related learning and functional practices and patterns, as they are applied and combined to solve a series of real-world problems.
The Certified Trainer works closely with participants to ensure that all exercises are carried out completely and accurately. Attendees can voluntarily have exercises reviewed and graded as part of the class completion.
