GAINESVILLE, Fla., and ROCHESTER, NY, (PRUnderground) August 20th, 2019 — ITProTV, the home of binge-worthy learning™ for IT professionals and the fastest growing online learning membership platform, is pleased to announce the addition of security and IoT technology certifications to its course library via a new partnership with CertNexus, a global purveyor of vendor-neutral, emerging technology certifications and micro-credentials for IT, business and security professionals.
ITProTV initially will offer four courses from the CertNexus certification program with the option to add more in 2020. The four courses are for the following certification programs: Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP), Certified IoT Security Practitioner (CIoTSP), Cyber Secure Coder (CSC), CyberSec First Responder® (CFR).
“We’re always looking to expand our courses library to meet the needs of IT professionals,” ITProTV CEO Tim Broom said. “The CertNexus courses provide additional security courses which is a large growth area for IT pros, plus adds IoT certs which are new to our platform.”
The IoT industry is on its way to becoming a $450 billion industry, according to Bain and Company and the average cost of a cyber incident is $3.86 million according to IBM – that’s an average cost of $148 per record. CertNexus is committed to providing certification programs that ensure employees have best-in-class skill sets to match their organization’s critical technology solutions by encompassing three essential concepts: Think. Build. Secure.
“We’re pleased to join forces with ITProTV and provide these certification options to its online community,” said Jeff Felice, President at CertNexus. “We’ve developed courses, certifications, and micro-credentials that offer standardizations in the world of data security and IoT, and the fact that ITProTV has expanded its offerings to include our courses further exemplifies the necessity to certify skill sets such as these.”
