According to a recent article in Network World, “having a broad array of certifications is even more important for giving job-seekers a needed edge.” That’s good news for ECPI students. The latest additions to the ECPI University List of Approved Certifications now include Microsoft technology operating systems certifications 070 series-410, -411, -461, -462, -680 and -685, and Certified Internet Webmaster (CIW) exam ID0-571.
Certifications are highly-recommended by both faculty and employers who serve on Advisory Boards. Recommendations are reviewed by the Academic Deans and proposed to the University’s Curriculum Committee on a continual basis throughout the year.
Once approved, certifications are available at deep discounts for students who meet the eligibility requirements. To make certifications even more attractive, a Testing Center is available at most ECPI locations and campus libraries can provide print and eBook format certification study guides.
The current list of ECPI University-approved certifications includes 103 certifications for the School of Business, School of Criminal Justice, and the School of Technology and professional licensure exams in support of the School of Health Science programs.
