ISACA offers new ‘emerging technologies’ certification

By Staff Writer

ICT professional association ISACA is offering a new certification which it says gives IT professionals the scope to boost their skillset in top emerging technologies and ensure their knowledge is up to date.

ISACA announced on Thursday its Certified in Emerging Technology (CET) certification, noting that "emerging technologies are essential to digital transformation and business progress, whether it is blockchain used in supply chains and in the financial industry, or artificial intelligence in driving efficiency across sectors".

“Established IT professionals, students and recent grads alike can set themselves apart with employers and gain foundational knowledge about the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and cloud without having prior experience,” ISACA says.

“The CET certification is unique in offering a vendor-agnostic, hybrid learning model which incorporates a stackable series of certificates. It features both performance-based and knowledge-based learning, including live labs in a virtual environment.”

ISACA says the certificates “can be achieved at one’s own pace from anywhere” and provide both an examination of each technology and a holistic view of the connections among the emerging technologies, allowing IT professionals to upskill and cross-skill in the following domains:

  • Cloud Fundamentals Certificate
  • Blockchain Fundamentals Certificate
  • IoT Fundamentals Certificate
  • Artificial Intelligence Fundamentals Certificate

“It is important for professionals in IT audit, risk, security, governance and privacy to have an understanding of emerging technologies and how they intersect with their work, as well as impact their organisations at a business level,” says ISACA CEO David Samuelson.

“With the new Certified in Emerging Technology certification, ISACA is pleased to offer our global community the tools to gain this knowledge and skillset and continue to take their careers to new heights.”

According to ISACA, the CET certification is a good fit for professionals at different levels and job functions—from students and recent graduates wanting to build their résumés, to those already established in roles in governance, risk and compliance; IT audit; network administration; software development; information security; enterprise architecture and business management who want to learn more about emerging technology and how it applies to their roles and organisations.

“Continual up-skilling is a strong signal of professionalism in all IT fields,” said Caitlin McGaw, Principal, Candor McGaw.

“Hiring managers are actively looking for people with emerging technology skills. However, since companies are still ramping up these technologies, many professionals have not yet had the chance to gain that experience.

“Being able to demonstrate the accomplishment of high-quality training and hands-on work with emerging technology will be a substantial competitive advantage for experienced professionals and recent grads alike.”

The CET certification program offers study guides, self-paced training courses, virtual instructor-led training, additional lab packages and exams for each certificate, available at discounted rates to ISACA members.

Custom training packages for up-skilling IT teams are also available and, once all four certificate exams are completed, the CET certification is awarded.
