No. All our courses are developed to prepare you for the specific certification exams you wish to pursue. Once you complete a course series, we will provide you a certificate of completion that stands as proof that you completed and passed our training, but it does not certify you.

Continuing Education Units are required by some certifying organizations to measure your current and continuing learning. Organizations may require you to meet a given number of education units in a specific period in order for your certification to be considered valid. By completing a Tech Training course series, you will be rewarded with a certificate of completion. This certificate will show how many CEU’s that particular course series was worth. Students may provide this certificate to their certifying organization to provide proof of participation and completion of a Tech Training Academy course series.

Please Note: The acceptance of CEU credits through completion of a Tech Training course series is solely the decision of the certifying organization.

Cybersecurity courses for example remain the fastest growing IT sector.

Obtaining the actual certification amplifies your skill credentials, helps your job search, gets your noticed by potential employers, increases your earning potential and separates you from other job seekers looking to get hired without an industry recognized certification. However, most hiring managers are additionally going to also want experience which you can get through temp/contract or project work to start with if you have no industry experience.

Accreditation is a term designated for schools that have credits associated with their courses. Therefore, such schools would have to provide degrees. We, however, provide training for industry leading/professional certifications and not degrees. We supply you with the total exam prep and training for the certification exams and you will receive a certificate of completion from Tech Training Academy. All certification exams are administered by the actual 3rd party governing bodies at an additional cost and are not included in the cost of the training.

If you do not have a university degree, then you will need 7500 hours.
