Hot IT Certification

Various job indices have indicated that companies are mostly on the look-out for Project Managers, business analysts and developers for .NET and Java-based applications. We've covered some of the hottest certifications internationally for the IT industry, but if you're looking for something a little more useful on the local stage, we recommend taking a look at certifications suited specifically to the aforementioned career paths.

Considering the continuing high demand for project managers - particularly among financial institutions - it is important to ensure you have the skills necessary to enter the workforce and gain the experience required. One way to do that is through the PMI Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) course, a three month period which should see you qualified to take on various projects at any institution.
