Do you work in IT or cybersecurity and want to advance your career?  Are you required to hold certain certifications for your job?  It sounds like you need some certification training.  Finding the right training for your certification can help you achieve your goals, save time and money, and even put you on the fast track to promotions and pay raises. 

Certification Is in Demand

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics 2016 CPS data, more than three fourths of individuals in technical occupations hold certifications, and full-time or salary workers with certifications earn 35 percent more than their non-certified counterparts.  The unemployment rate was lower for people who held certifications.  When applying for a new job, when two candidates are evenly matched in skills and education, a certification can give you the edge over the competition.
