Certifications & Credentials


How CertNexus Certifications Make a Difference

Certifications can help applicants land that dream job in emerging technologies, where openings are plentiful.  For those already in IT, certifications can lead to pay increases and job security or assist in landing a new position.

Earning an associate’s, bachelor’s, or advanced degree can help professionals acquire some basic IT knowledge, but the ever-evolving IT landscape can result in a skills gap.  Certifications and related training is updated regularly to ensure that those earning them are familiar with the latest advances.

Top training companies rely on CertNexus because CertNexus certifications focus on the emerging technologies that are driving expansion in critical expanding industries, creating jobs and driving the demand by organizations for experts prepared to meet the changing needs of their clients and partners. 

Employers are looking for proficient IT professionals.  Skilled team members can reduce costs, increase productivity, and protect the organization from malicious attacks.

Certifications validate that applicants and team members have and maintain the requisite knowledge to perform in their positions, driving the business forward while defending it against threats. Certifications can also prepare employees for promotion or to take on additional tasks.

CertNexus certifications offer third-party validation of skills, so they can reduce the time and cost of evaluating and hiring new talent and help organizations avoid bad hires.

What an amazing process with CertNexus! Delivering current IT and Cyber Security training is core to what I do and with the release of the new CyberSAFE 410 it was great to jump onto a live session with the training team. Three days later and I am proudly displaying my CertNexus Authorized Trainer badge, ready to support and provide learning opportunities to my future delegates. #learningeveryday
