The Information Technology Specialist program is a way for individuals to validate foundational IT skills sought after by employers. The IT Specialist program is aimed at individuals who are considering or just beginning a path to a career in information technology. Individuals can certify their knowledge in a broad range of IT topics, including software development, database administration, networking and security, mobility and device management, and coding.
IT Specialist gives students and workforce candidates the power to chart their own course, fulfill their ambition, and realize their potential.
Once you have earned your IT Specialist certification, you can proudly display your certification through a digital badge. Digital badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome. Representing your credential as a badge gives you the ability to share your skills online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time.
IT Specialist certified individuals have a lot to be proud of. Badges validate skills and allow individuals to show the world what they’ve accomplished.
Digital badging helps individuals move forward professionally by quickly establishing credibility for opportunities in higher education and the job market. Each badge contains verifiable data that tells employers and admission committees what you did, who says you did it, and why it matters.
