“As companies navigate within the fourth industrial revolution, multi-vendor solutions are the norm to provide best in class results, ranging from customer experience to IT infrastructure. 

“Whether it is a high value innovation using an IoT solution or maintaining secure access to protect customer data through security protocols, it is the people responsible for maintaining and implementing the solutions that provide the greatest value and highest risk to an organisation. As technology becomes the defacto solution across all industries, the need for critical training standardisation is more crucial than ever.

“We  therefore  find CertNexus’ certifications suitable for employees and companies who are willing to create a comprehensive, proactive approach to cyber security training. This is because they have track record in  providing certification programs that ensure employees have best-in-class skill sets to match their organisation’s critical technology solutions.”

He said: “We have  developed courses, certifications, and micro-credentials that offer standardisations in the world of data security, IoT and artificial intelligence .

“More so, the fact that the centre has expanded its  offerings to include our courses further exemplifies the necessity to certify skill sets. We’re excited to join forces and utilise its expansive network of locations to make this possible.”
