First introduced in 2000, the HDI Support Center Certification program is the only open industry standards program for the certification of technical support center quality. HDI Support Center Certification is designed to improve the effectiveness of the technical support services industry and support organizations by providing an industry standard that is recognized worldwide, and an accompanying certification program.
