A professional certification is becoming more valuable in today’s workplace because employers value a standardized set of skills and qualifications to perform the job – especially in the fields of IT and healthcare.
For workers, certifications offer a competitive edge in a cut-throat job market and heighten career advancement opportunities. In fact, research from CompTIA shows that employees who hold certifications are more confident and knowledgeable, reach job proficiency quicker, are more reliable, and perform at a higher level than those without.
The study also found that high school graduates with a professional certification have median earnings 22% higher than high school graduates without, while associate degree holders with a certification have median earnings 18% higher than those without.
