Are you thinking about earning a Network Infrastructure Training Certification? Wondering about whether it’s worth the effort?
If you’re looking to advance your career and retain up to date, expert knowledge in a field that’s only expected to experience greater future demand, training investment is crucial.
Below we review three key ways that investing in recognized training certifications can advance your career in wireless and cabling infrastructure.
Many infrastructure job positions require experience with CommScope or other similar industry organizations. For example, hiring managers will often indicate that particular training certifications are a high or medium priority during a candidate evaluation process.
HR execs verify certifications among job candidates, and recruiters consider certification as part of their hiring criteria. So, if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, researching the specific certifications required for a role may help you to get ahead.
Recruiters rate certifications as having extremely high or high value in validating the skills and expertise of job candidates.
Certification, training and experience are top characteristics when selecting a candidate for an infrastructure-related position. If you want to become an expert in your field, take note that that recognition often begins with taking responsibility for your own training.
In the network infrastructure industry, employees who hold a recognized training certification can earn more, annually, than their peers.
Training and certification play essential roles in preparing infrastructure professionals for the evolving infrastructure market.
Regarding CommScope Certifications in particular, these are recognized worldwide and as such can help to open the doors to potential job opportunities. When you pass a CommScope Certification, you become a member of the CommScope Infrastructure Academy community, with access to all of the benefits provided through the CommScope program. You can find lots of ways to keep your skills relevant, applicable and competitive.
Of course it should be noted that you as a trainee are at the heart of all of this. When you take a certification course because you want to, rather than ‘because you have to’, the gains can be amazing. You’d be surprised at how quickly you can learn when you have that hunger for knowledge.
Remember, certifications are more than a credential for your employer or potential employer to measure you by. They are a measuring stick that you can use to advance your own knowledge and expertise.
As a training academy, we recommend students continue to develop their own plans for further certifications. Our key recommendation is to prepare, prepare, prepare. Get some experience, attend a course (online or classroom) to try things out.
