Association for Windows PowerShell Professionals

ProLogo

PowerShell.org is the driving force behind the Association for Windows PowerShell Professionals, a professional development association designed to help make Windows PowerShell a more reliable, efficient part of organizations’ production environments. The Association has a mission consisting of three main components:

  • Education: We seek to provide cutting-edge education focused on the practical, real-world use of Windows PowerShell in business environments
  • Certification: We will provide professional, peer-reviewed verification and certification of our members’ Windows PowerShell knowledge, skills, and abilities
  • Reflection: We facilitate an expert-driven peer review process to foster community and professional standards

Association membership is a wonderful way to maintain a strong connection with the broader Windows PowerShell community, to show your professionalism with Windows PowerShell, and to demonstrate your commitment to operational automation in a Microsoft-based environment.

At this time, AWPP membership benefits are not planned as an a la carte offering, meaning benefits will be open only to AWPP members. However, our script peer review panel will have public access options at no charge.
