Vendor Certifications

Are you committed to retaining current skills and knowledge in the constantly changing technological landscape?

Vendor Certifications give you specific ICT skills and knowledge and authorise you as a certified user for Vendor products. They are an extra tool to have in your job-seeking tool box and we know that they put you ahead of people without them.

We know that employers look for new recruits who have Vendor Certifications which is why they are embedded in our exams.

Vendor Certifications are an indication to employers of professional development and increase opportunities for employment and career advancement. They are fast becoming a fundamental part of IT education.

Computer Power students can sit their Vendor exams when  they have completed the relevant Project/Checkpoints, sat the internal exam with results over 70%, used Measure Up tests (averaging results of 80% or more) and upon receiving a recommendation from an Instructor that they may sit the exam.

With a diploma, Vendor Certifications and Job Placement advice and support, Computer Power ensures you are job ready!
