Technology alone cannot protect an organization’s assets or increase its profitability. People are the key to a successful organization, and employers demand qualified information technology staff to provide the highest standard of performance for their customers, employees, shareholders and partners. There are two main categories of information technology certifications: vendor-neutral and vendor-specific. Vendor-neutral certifications, such as the CompTIA A+ certification and (ISC) 2 CISSP® certification (Certified Information Systems Security Professional), encompass a broad scope of knowledge and are not tied to any specific technology vendor or product. Vendor-specific certifications, such as Microsoft’s MCSE certification (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) and Cisco’s CCNA certification (Cisco Certified Network Associate), are offered by information technology vendors covering knowledge and content specific to their products, solutions, and best practices. Both kinds of certifications play an extremely important role in the market, fulfilling specific knowledge and learning requirements, and demonstrating predetermined acceptable levels of competency and experience.
Computer certification programs are setting the standards for the Information Technology industry worldwide. Although most careers in the IT and communications fields are lucrative and lead to rapid advancement, you can move ahead even more rapidly if you have been certified. In fact, you often can earn a salary increase of 20% or more once you become certified. Nowadays, learning computer repair on your own or even having a degree in computer science just isn't enough. Companies are demanding that their IT professionals be certified as a way to measure their skills as well as to guarantee that they can perform their jobs successfully. In short, computer training certification will help a computer professional get a good job and stay competitive in what is now a highly demanding Information Technology environment.
