Rochester, New York – [27 Apr 2020] – Computer Learning Centre, a leading provider of instructor-led IT Certification 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 a high-value innovation using an Internet of Things (IoT) solution, employing Artificial Intelligence (AI) 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 cybersecurity, IoT, and AI broaden 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 lead projects and make informed decisions. 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 in these areas over the next five years. 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.
“There is a very high demand for emerging technologies in Africa thus the need to have CertNexus’ certifications as they are the best solution for companies looking to create a technology-focused culture,” said Aunally Maloo, CEO, Computer Learning Centre.
“We’re thrilled to have Computer Learning Centre 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 cybersecurity, IoT and AI, and the fact that Computer Learning Centre has expanded their offerings to include our courses further exemplifies the necessity to certify skill sets such as these. 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.”
