What are the benefits of certification?

Individuals

  • Overwhelmingly, individuals with Microsoft certifications have an advanced level of knowledge, expertise and skill, and command more professional credibility
  • Individual students may receive college credits to utilise tuition reimbursement programs for their IT training, or to complete college coursework

Human Resources

  • Employer-funded training and certification programs are a key to retaining skilled staff. Career development and advancement opportunities are shown to significantly reduce rates of employee turnover
  • Certification training programs provide benchmarks for hiring and promotion decisions by accurately assessing technical skills
  • Certification training programs maximise educational investments through immediate validation of skills
  • For HR managers, certification is particularly important because it allows them to more easily identify the skills that an individual possesses.
