PEOPLECERT today announced that, via its partnership with Plexent, the company is now a proud supporter of the Headway program, set to help unemployed professionals within the ITSM industry through subsidized training and discounted certifications.
The purpose of the Headway program (http://www.plexent.com/headway-program/) is to provide fast-tracked, subsidized ITIL and Project Management training and certification for unemployed IT professionals, aiming to strengthen their certified skills and thus increase their employment opportunities and competitiveness within the ITSM market.
According to this partnership, PEOPLECERT will be offering discounted access to its ITIL Foundation and Intermediate exams for those professionals who participate in the program. Professionals can choose to take a web or paper based exam, in one of the 19 languages available through PEOPLECERT, or they can take a web proctored exam, which offers them greater flexibility and convenience, as they can choose where and when they can take the exam, without having to travel to an exam location.
Professionals who participate in the program will also benefit from access to the full suite of e-services PEOPLECERT offers to all of its candidates, including a simple step process to book their exam, the ability to download their e-certificate and an online certificate verification service for potential employers.
‘Professional certifications are proven to increase employment opportunities and in today’s competitive market, employers seek for such certifications that differentiate candidates, make them stand out and thus enhance their potential. PEOPLECERT is a strong advocate of initiatives that aim to help those professionals get a globally recognized certification that proves their know-how to potential employers and thus maximize their career prospects’, says Dimitris Nicolaides, Business Development Manager.
