An in demand certification along with effective hands-on training is valuable for those who work in the IT field. Not only will certification unlock potential increases in salary, job satisfaction and job security, but the training behind it will give you the skills necessary to get the job done in the best way possible, the first time around.
There are many different types of certifications and training courses to consider. This infographic highlights the seven “hottest” IT certifications, but remember these are not your only options. It is important to be knowledgeable about your options before pursuing a certification, just as it would be important for a venture capitalist to research many different startup companies before picking one to invest in. Training and certification is similar in nature, in that it is an investment in oneself and one’s future. In order to truly capitalize, you must be proactive about your career!
So where do you get started? There are a ton of IT certifications available today, so deciding which one is right for you can seem like an overwhelming task. An important first step, again, is to decide what kind of certification is best for you with your current skill set, interests, and goals. A simple next step could be to Google search this type of certification, and see where training is available. It is essential, however, to make sure that you go with a training provider of high quality. Try searching for reviews once you’ve selected potential training providers. If you can’t find any providers in your area, keep in mind that many will conduct online courses as well. Good luck!
