Rochester, New York – [8 August 2023] – IT-IQ ZAMBIA, a leading ICT training and solutions 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 Zambia advances its mission to foster digital transformation and navigates 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 an Internet of Things (IoT) solution, or maintaining secure access to protect customer data, 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 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 with 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. The IoT industry is estimated to grow to an estimated 75 billion devices by 2025 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 toward growth.

“There is an imminent need to skill 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 students looking for a competitive edge as they enter the workforce,” said Eric Kasungu, General Manager of IT-IQ Zambia.

“We’re thrilled to have IT-IQ Zambia 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 IT-IQ Zambia 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.”
