New versions of many IT certifications are released as products and technologies improve. By staying up to date with your certifications, you are giving yourself the ability to work with the latest technology and removing many barriers. Updating your IT certification can lead to a bigger paycheck, but even if that doesn’t happen right away, you’ve strengthened your position for future financial gain.
6 Reasons to Update your Certification
1. Withdrawn Certifications
Did you know that Certifications can be withdrawn?
Certifications become withdrawn and retired when there is a new certification with current information, current products and versions. It is important to stay aware of retired certifications and get ahead of withdrawal dates by preparing for the new certification. This also shows that you are in touch with the industry.
2. Learn Something New
In all career paths, there is always room for professional growth. Learning the latest technology or techniques can help you stay on top of industry changes and apply your knowledge to your job and tasks.
Whether it’s a desire to perform better, expand your skill set and knowledge base or increase your marketability. The presence of updated IT certifications on your resume demonstrates that you are dedicated and able to keep up with change in the industry.
3. Improve Productivity
Outdated certifications can leave you with inefficiencies and a lack of productivity.
Pursuing and earning an upgraded certification presents you with the ability to learn new skills and you may discover a few tricks to increase speed and efficiency in your current processes.
4. Career Enhancement
Updating your IT certification can lead to a bigger paycheck, but even if that doesn’t happen right away, you’ve strengthened your position for future financial gain.
You can also consider pursuing a certification in a new product to broaden your knowledge of multiple products and technologies. An employer’s knowledge of your newly upgraded skill set can be an advantage and enhancement in many work environments.
5. New Certification Version
New versions of many IT certifications are released as products and technologies improve. By staying up to date with your certifications, you are giving yourself the ability to work with the latest technology and removing many barriers.
IBM Certification Program works to ensure that the latest technology is available to members and certifications are released often to help you work with these technologies.
6. Stay Current
Staying up to date with your certifications will keep you on your technical toes.
Certifications are a great way to show your dedication to your career and technology but did you know that it’s important to stay current and updated with your certifications. Vendor-specific certifications are often related to a product version, so when a newer version of the product is released, it’s important that you upgrade your certification to keep your skills up to date.
