The value of certification
As the world moves to a global economy with easier movement of employees and increased competition, there is a technology skills gap that can be felt in almost every country.
The 2017 IT Skills and Salary Report from Global Knowledge confirms that skills gaps are a global concern. In their survey of 14,300 IT professionals worldwide, more than two-thirds of the IT decision-makers reported a gap between their team’s skill levels and the knowledge required to achieve organizational objectives. The increased need to match employer needs with workforce skills points out the value of certification.
Certification, particularly entry-level certification, helps to build a skilled workforce that meets the needs of local employers and government tech initiatives.
