12AC COMMON Certification Program — What You Need to Know
As technology professionals we have the responsibility to help the organizations we work for conduct business in a way that is efficient, timely, accurate, and compliant. Certification is a way for us to measure our ability and the abilities of those who work for us. The COMMON Certification Program does just that in the realm of Business Computing. The COMMON Business Computing Associate (CBCA), and its follow on the COMMON Certified BusinessComputing Professional (CCBCP), are the only credentials that measure our ability to effectively support our organizations. This session covers requirements for the certification program and walks through some of what you may find on the exams. Certification is important to your career and important to your employer. Getting started on the CCBCP now will give you the extra edge you need to get to and exceed your life goals.
