    Leveraging Your Industry Certification-


    Being a professional you may have witnessed the growth in your industry over the years. To be a part of that growing industry, it has become essential to keep up with the advanced/technological changes which demand that you as a professional build your core competencies and acquire noteworthy credentials for the future.

    For professional as well as individual growth, people today have resorted to gaining deeper knowledge in their respective fields. Many certifications helps you keep up with the rapidly evolving industry. An organization that has skilled and certified human resources not only does better at providing quality deliverables, but also bolsters the company’s reputation in attracting and building new business.

    Acquiring your certification can leverage your career in terms of interesting project opportunities and client acceptance. Organizations having certified personnel have the advantage of getting a better client in-flow as well. From the client perspective, an organization with certified personnel reassures them of their project being in competent hands.

    If you are looking forward to excel and mark your presence in the organization you are working at, being a certified professional may be just the way.

    In this workshop you will learn the value of several certifications within the Talent Development Profession such as CPLP, APTD, HRCI, SHRM and ICF.
