January 2021 – TechZone, a leading training provider of instructor-led and virtual instructor-led 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 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 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 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, and compliance personnel the necessary knowledge to make informed decisions and lead projects. 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 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, 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.

“As always TechZone strives to deliver the Future Technology trainings to the candidates. We find CertNexus’ certifications are the best solution for employees and candidates who are looking to create a technology-focused culture while providing a way to simply validate skills and knowledge,” said Ahmad Alhelo, Professional Services Manager, TechZone.

“We’re thrilled to have TechZone 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 TechZone 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.”
