Those lazy-hazy-crazy days of summer are right around the corner. As meetings begin to drop off your calendar because of your colleague's OOO notifications, we suggest using that white space to invest in your ediscovery skills with a 2022 DISCO Certification. If bolstering your ediscovery know-how, learning some new tricks, or even broadening your skillset into a new role isn’t enticing enough, here are four additional reasons why spending some time with DISCO University is worth your while.
1. A chance to win some cool prizes
For each 2022 DISCO Certification you earn before September 5, 2022, you will be entered for a chance to win some fantastic prizes:
- One lucky DISCO Certified user will win a grand prize travel package to Austin, TX or NYC worth $3,000 so they can celebrate their ediscovery smarts in style.
- Fifty (50) first prize winners will win a DISCO University-branded Yeti tumbler to keep your summer drink of choice at its optimal, refreshing temperature.
Granted, we’re biased because we are headquartered in Austin and have an office in NYC, but the potential of winning a trip to either of these cities is reason enough to get DISCO Certified. Participants can receive up to four (4) entries in this sweepstakes. Whether you’re excited to try the various types of barbecue Austin offers or catch a couple of Broadway shows in NYC, every 2022 DISCO Certification you earn increases your chances of winning.
If you’re already a DISCO user, you will be automatically entered to win upon earning a 2022 DISCO Certification, even if you earned it between April and May of this year. If you are not a current DISCO user, no worries! You may register for an account and earn a 2022 certification. To read the DISCO University Certification Sweepstakes official rules, click here. Winners will be notified in early September.
2. Get certified on the go
Whether you find yourself on the beach soaking up the sunshine, hiking the mountains to get some fresh air, or relaxing in your home with the AC cranked up, you can earn a DISCO Certification from anywhere. DISCO University and the certification exams are cloud-based and mobile-friendly, meaning you can interact with our content anywhere. Plus, most of our modules are five minutes or less, so you can enhance your ediscovery knowledge with plenty of daylight to spare. Don’t forget – we’ll never require you to take a course before you’re able to take a certification exam. But in case you want a quick refresher, each DISCO Certification offers a prep course to ensure you’re ready to pass our exam with flying colors.
3. Bolster your bragging rights
What’s better than a badge that showcases your skills and accomplishments? Multiple badges! With each DISCO Certification you earn, we’ll send you a physical (sticker) badge and give you access to a digital badge. Digital badges can be shared on LinkedIn and other social pages so you can not only make your colleagues feel ediscovery FOMO but also shout from the rooftop that you’ve got next-generation expertise. Your digital badges also allow you to add yourself to the DISCO talent marketplace, which is searchable to employers so they can easily find the cream of the ediscovery crop.
4. Choose your own adventure
DISCO University is all about you, and we’re invested in making sure you have the skills you need, when you need them, to blaze through any ediscovery conundrum. We organized content in meaningful ways so you can choose one of our curated learning paths based on your role or develop your own based on your individual needs. We make it easy to find the resources you need to do your job right now. Whether you’re looking for a refresher on ECA or search syntax or to quickly expand your QC skill set, our variety of short-form content reinforces how working adults learn best. You’ll be able to apply skills to your review efforts in five minutes or less.
