FileWave offers five levels of certification that indicate a users training level and the amount of experience that they have working with the software. Attention is also given to the user's participation in the FileWave Dojo. The levels are marked by the color of "belts", from the white belt, given to initiates evaluating FileWave software, to the black belt given to the chosen few, the FileWave Sensei.
