Becoming certified as an S52 CAIS does not mean you are a full time employee of Strata52. All S52 CAISs are independent contractors and are issued form 1099 at the end of the year. However, All S52 CAISs are added to the Certified Partner Network, which means all CAISs are on the partner track program. 

Client engagements are contractual engagements between Strata52 and the clients, and we assign the top CAIS to the engagement to optimize for client value. CAISs are compensated for each engagement as independent contractors who are expected to adhere to Strata52’s guidelines.

After many successful engagements, S52 CAISs can be asked to join the company in a full-time leadership capacity.

Client engagement timeframes can vary based on engagement type:

  • Roadmapping: 1 week
  • Implementation: 3 Months
  • On-Demand AI Strategist: 1 year

The time commitment for each engagement will vary. As a client engagement is offered to you, expectations regarding estimated time commitments will be set up front.

Yes. Feel free to recommend yourself as an expert to become certified and join the S52 Certified Partner Network.

Each recommendation is carefully reviewed, and priority is given to those nominees who were recommended by an existing member of the S52 CPN.
