The pace of business in our world is accelerating to staggering levels. The increase in information, the rate of transactions and interactions is exponential. All of these drivers are causing business leaders to reevaluate their business models and look to technology to give them a strategic advantage, but they need skilled IT professionals with the foundational skills and abilities to keep pace. This new certification program will help educators effectively teach and validate IT skills, while also providing students with credentials that demonstrate real - world prowess to prospective employers.
By certifying one's skills, individuals can validate their technical abilities and demonstrate proficiency. HP's associate - level certifications are based on IT skills required by industry, government, and education. The objectives reflect the skills needed to successfully design and deploy end - to - end customer IT solutions for a complexity level typically found within small - and medium - sized businesses.
