Benefits of Certification

The reality we face as we chart the course of our career is that we cannot see over the horizon. We can make informed decisions based on what we know today and hope that these career choices will adequately prepare us for whatever conditions lie ahead. The intrinsic value of certification-and managing that value-can help ensure a successful career voyage.

Certification assists us in making important connections in a career. We see an ad for a job opening. The ad describes skills contained in our certifications. We make the connection that there is a possibility of filling that job. We use the credibility of certification to connect with business opportunities. Certifications, in other words, intrinsically provide the link between where you are and where you want to go.
