Getting Certified: Understand the Value of IT Certification

Updated: Mar 12

Everyone starts as a beginner. It takes years of working experience to gain the necessary skills and knowledge needed to become an expert or a specialist of your chosen field.

In the Tech Industry, IT practitioners, unlike other professionals, are not required to take any licensure exams. This is mostly attributed to the dynamic nature of the industry – constantly changing and rapidly evolving. Because of its fast-paced environment, new development, innovations, and specializations are also expected to continuously arise over the years.

This is just one of the reasons why IT Certifications are so important. Being able to adapt to the nature of the industry by equipping employees with the fundamentals and technical knowledge is crucial in the business. In addition, building credibility is essential when you consider to be a subject-matter expert of a certain field. Hence, getting yourself certified in the area you’re interested in is really something you might want consider.

Currently, organizations transform their businesses digitally. Based on the current demand in the market, IT leaders, including Microsoft, are heavily invested in promoting cloud migration, replacing on-premises technology with flexible, scalable, and cost-effective computing power in the cloud. In this case, the demand for cloud certification courses also increases.

In terms of certification exams, Microsoft offers courses to test knowledge on the technology component as well as role-based certifications in Microsoft 365, Azure and Dynamics 365. However, given the current situation, when movement has been restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person lab trainings are currently unavailable for safety precautions.
