What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution ?
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is a digital revolution characterised by extraordinary technology advances and the merging of digital, physical and biological environments that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another.
Role Based Certifications
Having a job role certification identifies the learner as having the skill for a particular job role and this is what recruiters are looking for. For the employed person, it shows that they have job relevant skills and will be able to perform the tasks required for a specific job role, thereby making them more productive in their jobs.
With computer-based developments changing at a rapid pace, employees need to align their skill sets with the requirements of an ever-changing ecosystem. CTU offers qualifications that align to multiple jobs that cover the aforementioned technologies of the future. This will ensure that graduates gain the necessary skills to secure jobs which will be relevant in the coming years.
