The Core Value of Apple Certifications


When it comes to winning an IT job, what's more important – certification, or work experience? Until recently, common advice says get certifications to climb the IT ladder. That way, a prospective employer can measure your knowledge. And if you've gained certifications for the technologies you've been working with in a job, you'll be in a stronger position, not just for getting the job, but for negotiation over salary and benefits.

But recent studies * show some IT certifications no longer equal success and higher pay, so it's important to choose your training and certification wisely. iOS devices and Macs are business staples. So are Apple's certifications worth pursuing?

From an employer's perspective, it's important to recognize the value in a well-rounded package of certifications and credentials, rather than limiting yourself solely to Apple. But certification and competencies in support and management of all Apple hardware including iPhones and iPads, gives you the edge in a multi-platform world. The Mac Integrations Basics eBook and certification programme is the easiest way to show cross-platform knowledge and skills. Beyond the basics, Apple offers certifications for Mac support for OS X server. It also offers a consultant's network you can join with existing Apple, Microsoft, or Cisco certifications.

Remember to combine some Windows support with server experience, and consider too the qualifications that will set you up in any specialist area of expertise, such as healthcare or project management, for which CompTIA, the IT certifications powerhouse, has recently begun offering certifications around.

The combination of Apple and Windows certification will certainly stand you head and shoulders above for multi platform expertise - and that's always a bonus for prospective employers.
