Accelerate your students' learning

Enhance your BYU education and bulk up your resume with industry certification through Certiport.

The job market is tough, so anything you can do to make yourself stand out in a stack of resumes is important. Employers and hiring managers notice and recognize the value of certification. In a recent study, 85 percent of supervisors said that certified employees are more productive because of their certification and therefore more desirable to hire.

Certification has educational benefits too. If you are a BYU undergraduate in Information Systems, you can fulfill your computer proficiency requirement for spreadsheet skills through a Microsoft Office Specialist certification! Additionally, the American Council on Education (ACE) offers college credit for Microsoft® Office Specialist, Adobe® Certified Associate, and IC³® Certifications.
