Announcing New IT Specialist Exams

We're proud to announce the three new certification exams in the Information Technology Specialist (IT Specialist) program: Artificial Intelligence, Computational Thinking, and Cloud Computing. These new exams are a way for students to validate entry-level IT skills sought after by many employers.

The exams are 50-minutes with approximately 35-55 questions each. The core concepts covered in these exams include building a security plan, assessing data quality, understanding data algorithms, explaining cloud computing value, creating virtual machines, and managing cloud security.

“At Certiport, we are dedicated to helping people succeed through certification. Future careers will depend more and more advanced technology skills. Over the next ten years, demand for cloud computing skills are expected to grow nearly 15%, and artificial intelligence skills are expected to grow over 40%,” said Ray Murray, General Manager of Certiport. “With these new IT Specialist certification exams, educators can introduce students to these in-demand skills before they enter the workforce.”

The IT Specialist Artificial Intelligence exam will be available in October, with Computational Thinking and Cloud Computing exams available starting in December, with additional learning resources and practice tests available those same dates.
