The certifications offered by MyComputerCareer address the growing need for smart, skilled and experienced professionals to assist organizations and businesses in protecting their infrastructure and digital assets. The pandemic accelerated the trend of skills-based hiring, especially in the tech industry, as organizations realized the possible mindset shift from the traditional 4-year higher education experience. The surge in skills-based hiring allows postsecondary education institutions to design experiences around workforce skills, assess those skills and help learners foster those skills, a priority MyComputerCareer has maintained since opening its doors in 2007.
