  • Certifications are the identification of the knowledge, skills and abilities required in jobs within specific sectors and industries.
  • Many are seen more than ever as the benchmark needed to enter into and advance in specific industries.
  • They contribute to career development and may be accepted for self-development requirements (e.g. Individual Development Plan) and in performance evaluations.

Many of our Advanced Career Training Programs help prepare students to take the certification exam in their field of interest.  An increasing number of these programs includes the cost of and access to the actual certification exam, in the form of a voucher.  Certification exam vouchers enable students to save time and money by providing a more streamlined, easy way to take their exam, after their training is complete.  Most importantly is our students appreciate the all-included package these vouchers courses provide.  (Some certifications require students to be at least 18 years old to take the exam.)   Certification Listing (available soon)
