Rochester, New York –[March 12, 2024]– edForce, a leading training company, announces the addition of in demand emerging technology certifications and micro-credentials to their educational offerings thanks to their new partnership with CertNexus.

As companies navigate within the fourth Industrial Revolution and Data Economy, 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 defacto solution across all industries, the need for emerging technology skills is more crucial than ever.

CertNexus is committed to providing certification programs that ensure employees have best-in-class skillsets 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, compliance personnel, and other stakeholders the necessary knowledge to make informed decisions and lead projects. Whether providing introductory information 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.  According to Gartner, the IoT industry is estimated to grow fivefold by 2025, with an estimated 75 billion devices worldwide, and the AI systems global spend is expected to reach $135 billion during the same timeframe. According to IBM’s “Cost of a Data Breach” report, the average cost of a cyber-attack on a company is $8.64 million. For an organization to succeed in this environment, training and confirming skills is the best investment towards growth.

“There is an imminent need to upskill the next generation workforce to meet the evolving demands placed on businesses due to the adoption of emerging technologies. We find CertNexus’ certifications are well-positioned to assist organizations seeking a competitive workforce,” stated Ravi Kaklasaria, Co-founder & CEO of edForce. “This partnership not only enhances our ability to deliver the latest, high-stakes emerging tech training and certifications to the businesses we serve but also signifies a mutually beneficial collaboration between edForce and CertNexus, amplifying the impact of workforce upskilling initiatives across industries.”
