Rochester, New York – [August 30, 2023] – WSM Academy, a leading training 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 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 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 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 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 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 an urgent need to train the next generation of workers to fulfill the changing expectations imposed on businesses as a result of the adoption of new technology. We believe CertNexus’ certificates are ideally positioned to assist learners seeking a competitive advantage when they join the workforce.” said Hamza Alraee, L&D Operations Director at WSM Academy.

We’re thrilled to have WSM Academy 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 WSM Academy 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.
