Certification is invaluable to individuals as they move through all stages of their careers. It is a formal recognition that an individual is an expert in their field and keeps up to date with current technologies and direction of the industry. Certification can also present a competitive edge and provide new opportunities to take individuals further in their career journey.

Certification is also beneficial for employers and businesses, helping them to provide clients with assurance that the work they carry out will be to high industry standards and will cement their position as trusted advisors.
