To achieve this certification, Avatao prepared a custom training program for the different target groups based on the languages the developers programmed in (Java, .Net, Python, C and C++ and an optional DevSecOps) that was in line with the PCI requirements. To give the team leaders a comprehensive overview of their teams’ progress throughout the 3-month initiative, the company was provided with the key metrics to track training completion, and regularly sent internal reminders to complete trainings on time.


During 2019 and 2020, throughout multiple waves of training in 30 different regions, the company developers targeted by the PCI-DSS compliance successfully passed and received their certification from the Avatao training.
