Certification       

Certification helps to judge competency and measures ability to use technology.

Becoming professionally certified ​is an intelligent career move for an IT professional. Unlike college or university qualifications, taking a professional certification offers you many more career opportunities.  
Professional certifications are current and allow you to provide your employer with the skills they need to run their information systems. On obtaining a vendor-approved certification, you show your employer that you have the depth of knowledge and hands-on skills required to support core products according to a rigorous standard established by ​each IT vendor.

ORACLE

The Oracle Certified Professional Program is valuable to hiring managers who want to distinguish between candidates for critical IT positions. Hiring certified professionals has a direct impact on a company's bottom line, as these conclusions from a research study conducted in 1997 by International Data Corporation suggest:
  • Certified professionals handled 40% more support calls per person, per day, than uncertified staff.
  • Companies that advocated certification reported 49% less downtime than those that did not.
  • For the majority of companies surveyed, the savings from increased effectiveness paid the costs of certification in less than nine months.
