Rochester, New York – [September 12 2023] – ExitCertified, a leading IT training company, announces the addition of new in-demand micro-credentials and certifications for emerging technologies to its educational offerings thanks to a 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 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, organizations need people with the right skills to support and implement the solutions that provide the most significant value to an organization. As technology becomes the de facto 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 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, compliance personnel, and other stakeholders the necessary expertise 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. The IoT industry is estimated to grow fivefold by 2025 with an estimated 75 billion devices, according to Gartner. As of early 2023, some emerging generative AI systems had already reached more than 100 million users, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office. And the global average cost of a corporate data breach in 2023 is $4.45 million, according to IBM. For an organization to succeed in this environment, training and confirming skills is the best investment toward growth.

“There is an imminent need to upskill the next generation workforce to meet the evolving demands placed on businesses to adopt emerging technologies,” said Mark McCreath, President, ExitCertified. “CertNexus certifications are well positioned to assist students looking for a competitive edge as they aim to rise in their jobs or enter the workforce.”

“We’re thrilled to have ExitCertified 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 ExitCertified has expanded its 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.”
