Tom Bogusz is a Systems Administrator on the Technology Services team, and also holds an EnCase Certified Examiner certification.
“We are very proud of Ray, Anthony, and Tom,” said Judy Torres, Vice President of Information Services. “Earning a Relativity Certification is no easy task - they’ve worked very hard for these credentials, and we applaud their dedication and passion.”
The Relativity Expert designation is second only to the title “Relativity Master,” and requires professionals to achieve a combination of two or more Relativity specialist certifications in addition to being recognized as an Relativity Certified Administrator. The RCA certification demands a score of 80 percent or higher on a written exam, plus successful execution of a practical. Any of five available specialist certifications can be used to satisfy the additional requirements for Relativity Expert status.

“The certifications from kCura are among the most rigorous in the industry and represent a significant achievement for my colleagues and me,” said Hernandez. “We take great pride in further expanding our skills and knowledge with Relativity as the software platform continues to grow and evolve.”
