Industry Standard Certifications are credentials achieved through a testing process, to validate knowledge within a specific career field. All industry standard certification exams are developed by subject matter experts, and the certifications are recognized throughout the industry as the standard for proving foundation-level skill sets.
Certified professionals report that they have more confidence on the job, see an improvement in the quality of their work and have a higher demand for their services. Employers feel the same way.
