Rochester, New York – [March 21, 2022] – CierraTEC Training Services , a leading training provider of instructor-led and virtual instructor-led training, announces the addition of in demand emerging technology certifications and
micro-credentials to their public training schedule thanks to their new partnership with CertNexus.

As companies navigate within the fourth Industrial Revolution, multi-vendor and open source solutions are the
norm to provide best in class results. Whether it is employing Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Data Science to grow a
business, implementing a high value innovation using an Internet of Things (IoT) solution, or maintaining secure
access to protect customer data through security protocols, it is the people responsible for maintaining and
implementing the solutions that provide the greatest value and highest risk to an organization. As technology
becomes the de facto solution across all industries, the need for skills standardizations is more crucial than ever.

CertNexus is committed to providing certification programs that ensure employees have best-in-class skill sets to
match their organization’s business critical technology solutions. CertNexus’ certification programs in Artificial
Intelligence/Machine Learning, Data Science, Internet of Things, Cybersecurity and Secure Coding broaden Data,
Developer, IT, and Security professional’s knowledge and validate skills using globally recognized curriculum and
high stakes examinations. CertNexus micro-credentials provide business leaders, project managers, and
compliance personnel the necessary knowledge to make informed decisions and lead projects. Whether providing
introductory information, a deeper dive in specialized area, or compliance training micro-credentials are right-sized
for the need – validating focused knowledge.

Billions of dollars will be gained and lost over the next five years as tech changes business globally. The IoT
industry is estimated to grow fivefold by 2025 with an estimated 75 billion devices according to Gartner, IDC
forecasts AI systems will more than double to $79.2 billion in 2022, while the average cost of a cyber-attack on a
company is $3.86 million (IBM). For an organization to succeed in this environment, training and confirming skills is
the best investment towards growth.

“As always CierraTEC Training Services strives to deliver the Future Technology trainings to the candidates. We
find CertNexus’ certifications are the best solution for employees and candidates who are looking to create a
technology-focused culture while providing a way to simply validate skills and knowledge,” said Cynthia Wade,
CEO, CierraTEC Training Services .

“We’re thrilled to have CierraTEC Training Services as our newest Authorized Training Partner,” said Jeff Felice,
President, CertNexus. “We’ve developed courses, certifications, and micro-credentials that offer standardizations
in the world of emerging technologies, and the fact that CierraTEC Training Services has expanded their offerings
to include our courses further exemplifies the necessity to certify such skills. We’re excited to join forces and
support their ability to deliver the latest, high-stakes emerging tech training and certifications to the businesses
they serve.”
