CertNexus is pleased to announce that their Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (ITP-110) Exam has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute meeting the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard. In addition, CertNexus’ CyberSec First Responder accreditation with ANSI has been extended to include updates to the newest version of its CFR-310 exam.
“We are very pleased to have the only IoT certification which has achieved this standard of excellence and for the continued recognition of our work in cybersecurity”, said CertNexus Chief Product Officer, Megan Branch. “As emerging technologies, IoT and cybersecurity are facing significant talent gaps. Tools to educate and validate our workforce require excellence in development and maintenance that the ANSI accreditation signifies.”
ANSI National Accreditation Board accreditation process is designed to increase the integrity, confidence, and mobility of certified professionals and represents the global benchmark for accreditation body practice. Both ANSI accreditations highlight CertNexus’ commitment to emerging technology and its ability to meet the most rigorous technology certification standards in the industry today.
“The ANSI National Accreditation Board commends CertNexus for achieving accreditation and demonstrating its commitment to the continual improvement of its certification program,” said Dr. Vijay Krishna, senior director, credentialing programs at the ANSI National Accreditation Board. “Accreditation by the ANSI National Accreditation Board demonstrates compliance to a rigorous internationally recognized accreditation process and creates a valuable market distinction for these credentials.”
The Certified Internet of Things Practitioner exam validates that a candidate possesses foundational knowledge of IoT concepts, technologies, and tools that will enable them to become a capable IoT Practitioner in a wide variety of IoT-related job functions. It is ideal for individuals seeking to build a vendor-neutral, cross-industry foundational knowledge that will enable them to design, implement, operate, and/or manage an IoT ecosystem.
The CyberSec First Responder certification validates that a candidate understands and can execute tactics, tools, and procedures to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, evaluate the organization’s security, collect and analyze cybersecurity intelligence and remediate and report incidents as they occur. CFR is also DoD-8570 compliant. To view DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certifications, click here.
