The demand for professionals in information technology (IT) is high. Certification exams are gaining more and more importance as the competition for jobs intensifies. They are going to open the doors for the dream jobs. As Oracle quotes, “In a recent salary report of certified professionals by Certification Magazine, Oracle Certified Professionals were found to earn the highest average salaries as compared to any other DBA or Developer professionals.”
Research indicates that certified individuals have increased competence, productivity, and credibility with their employers, co-workers, and clients. For employers, the certification provides skill-verification tools that not only help to assess a person’s skills in using Microsoft Office programs but also the ability to quickly complete on-the-job tasks across multiple programs in the Microsoft Office system.
