What is the RMDS Progression System?

 

 

The RMDS Progression System uses certification level (junior data scientist, senior data scientist, expert data scientist) to track your growth as a data scientist on RMDS. Along the way, you’ll earn badges for your achievements. By participating in different activities that are specified in the category of expertise below, you can earn credits accordingly, which will be calculated automatically to determine your current certification level.
