Certified System Engineer ICAM PACS Training and Certification Program

The Smart Card Alliance “Certified System Engineer ICAM PACS” training and certification program provides advanced training for systems engineers on how to set-up and test E-PACS to align with government-wide specifications. This GSA-approved training program will provide the training and certification required for E-PACS engineers employed by commercial organizations that are looking to bid on GSA procurement agreements for access control systems. To ensure that procurements of approved E-PACS for GSA managed facilities are installed properly, GSA requires that all billable work performed on such systems be done using certified system engineers.

This comprehensive program will provide systems engineers with the necessary training to demonstrate their ability to efficiently and effectively implement PKI and federal ICAM architectures for E-PACS and meet all federal requirements.

The program has a core classroom training curriculum and hands-on training to teach engineers best practices for set-up and testing E-PACS. The program will provide:

Learning Objectives for Certified System Engineer ICAM PACS Training and Certification

The classroom training curriculum will include the following learning objectives that will provide system engineers with the knowledge to properly implement E-PACS. This is a lecture-lab training course. The first day is primarily lecture and discussion from a prepared training script. The second day is partly review of the lecture materials followed by extensive hands-on lab training experience on a live E-PACS system. At the end of the second day, there will be more directed question and answer reviews of the principles presented in the course. The third day is for the written and practical exams to demonstrate that each person has understood the E-PACS training principles and can successfully apply their knowledge to configure a test E-PACS system that will enable a successful end to end PIV-enabled access control transaction.
