Get Certified

- Overview
- Types of certifications
- How to get Certified
- Certification bodies and certificates


Certifications are earned from a professional society, university, or from a private certifier, for some specific certifications (e.g., Microsoft). Some certifications must be renewed periodically, or may be valid for a specific period of time. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Standard 1100, defines the requirements of meeting the ANSI standard for being a certifying organization. According to ANSI Standard 1100, a professional certifying organization must meet two requirements:

1. Deliver an assessment based on industry knowledge, independent from training courses or course providers.
2. Grant a time-limited credential to anyone who meets the assessment standards

Types of certifications

There are three general types of certification. Listed in order of development level and portability, they are:

- Corporate (internal)
- Product-specific
- Profession-wide

- Corporate, or "internal" certifications, are made by a corporation or organization for internal purposes. For example, a corporation might require a one-day training course for all sales personnel, after which they receive a certificate. While this certificate has limited portability – to other corporations
- Product-specific certifications are more involved, and are intended to be referenced to a product across all applications. This approach is very prevalent in the information technology (IT) industry, where personnel are certified on a version of software or hardware. This type of certification is portable across locations (for example, different corporations that use that software), but not across other products.
- Profession-wide certification is the most general type of certification. Certification in the medical profession is often offered by particular specialties. In order to apply professional standards, increase the level of practice, and protect the public, a professional organization might establish a certification. This is intended to be portable to all places a certified professional might work. An example of this is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), which would not be certified for just one corporation or one piece of accountancy software but for general work in the profession.

Nexus Academy qualifies people in Product-specific certifications and Profession-wide certifications. We are interested to help organizations in developing Corporate, or "internal" certifications.

The purpose of certifications

Certifications were created to meet two related needs:

1. Companies wanted to make sure that the staff working for them could justify their experience, knowledge and know-how. The clients often require that the consultant hired be certified.
2. The employees want their experience and their ability in performing the work successfully to be recognized.
