Industry Recognized Certification Programs
An Industry Recognized Certification is an education- and work-related credential, which is meant to verify an individual’s qualification or competence. The certification is issued by a third party that has relevant authority to issue such a credential.
ICATT currently offers Scaled Agile Product Owner Product Manager (POPM) and CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security +.
The value of industry-recognized certifications cannot be underestimated. In a study conducted by the Information Technology Association of America, vendor or industry certification was found to be as important as a bachelor’s degree to information technology (IT) companies, while non-IT companies placed certification only just below a bachelor’s degree.
Global access to talent. People who succeed are prepared with more than skills, it includes selling yourself.
ICATT implements each industry-recognized certification program as follows:
- Conduct an average of 5 days remote and/or self-paced Bootcamp training
