Why is an Industry Certification important for my career?

Did you know that industry certified professionals earn more than their non-certified counterparts. According to a study by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, workers with an industry certification earn an average of 12% more than those without one. Certifications also contribute to job security as they make you more marketable to potential employers and can help you keep your job during an economic downturn. Not only do industry certifications show employers that you are committed to continuous learning and professional development, they also demonstrate your expertise to potential employers, clients, and colleagues.
