Industry Certification

Industry Standard Certifications are credentials achieved through a testing process to validate knowledge within a specific career field. All industry standard certification exams are developed by subject matter experts, and the certifications are recognized throughout the industry as the standard for proving foundation-level skill sets.

Certified professionals report that they have more confidence on the job, see an improvement in the quality of their work and have a higher demand for their services. Employers feel the same way. In fact, 74% of managers say an industry standard certification is an important factor in considering an employee for a promotion.
