What IT certifications do employers recruit, screen and hire for? What types of and what companies require or deeply value these accreditations when hiring employers for open positions? What skills do students gain from the various certification curriculums and training programs? How do I get certified and how much does it cost? Can I get reimbursed and are there special programs for unemployed workers to get certified or retrained?
