"Industry-recognized certifications can have a significant impact on a student's career prospects in Micronesia by demonstrating industry-relevant skills, increasing job opportunities, improving earning potential, enhancing professional credibility, and advancing career progression."

"Globally, employers continue to report a shortage of qualified workers, and although employers have many job openings, they struggle to find skilled, qualified applicants to fill those positions. Certification helps close the gap, benefitting not only individual learners, but also our country and its economy," said Jim Arenovski, Owner of Island Training Solutions. "Certiport is the sole provider of some of the world’s biggest academic certification programs, and we are excited to be able to offer their full portfolio of certifications to the people of Micronesia."
