What are the benefits of certification?

For IT managers, certification is particularly important because it allows them to more easily identify the skills that an individual possesses. When a company has employees that possess certain skills, it can garner a competitive advantage when seeking to attract customers. Certification can also contribute to increased productivity, because studies have shown that certified individuals are generally quicker to implement and design new technologies. And of course by knowing that their employees are certified, IT managers can feel more confident about their ability to implement and support a network infrastructure.


  • Overwhelmingly, individuals with Microsoft certifications have an advanced level of knowledge, expertise and skill, and command more professional credibility
  • The SQL 2005 IT Pro Database Developer certification is recognised as a particularly elite indication of an Database Developer's prowess and skill level, and these professionals are highly sought by employers
  • Individual students may receive college credits to utilize 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 IT 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
  • For-certification training programs maximize educational investments through immediate validation of skills

Kieran Senior, Collins Stewart. (16/2/2009 (Monday) to 21/2/2009 (Saturday))

"The training experience at Wyboston was a very positive one, and by far exceeded my expectations. The review sessions in the evenings helped me understand concepts, anmd rienforced my learning theroughout the day. For me it was a crtitical success factor in passing both my exams here during my six day course! Two exams passed in a six day period! I did some pre-reading an preperation but not a lot. I'm surprised at how much I have taken in over the last few days. I have another course booked later in the year and am seriously considering booking another course. Total immersion is the way to go. I'll NEVER book a standard IT training course with another company again. Thanks Firebrand Training!"
