Make an Impact on Unity Creators

UCI Ian Snyder

“Becoming a UCI has led to tremendous professional and personal growth for me. I’ve had the opportunity to provide training to exciting clients, and built my network with industry veterans. The variety of workshops and learners has led me to broadly improve my Unity skills, as well as acquiring in-depth knowledge of specific technical facets. I can’t recommend it enough!”

UCI Meehae Song

“I have learned and grown so much over the past 3 years before and after getting certified and now have a much more grounded understanding of Unity. The first ever UCI Summit brought together UCIs from around the world, and I was able to meet other amazing UCIs and share my work. The best part of being a UCI is being able to teach, support and learn as part of the tight UCI community.”
