Offering secure online exams will help certification bodies continue to increase the scale of their programs
November 2, 2021 — The pandemic has caused employers to embrace digital technology like never before. But many are struggling to find the technical talent they need to make the most of it. Questionmark, the online assessment provider, can help certification bodies continue to help meet the demand for more technical skills by making it easier and more secure to test candidates online.
Researchers have cited a lack of tech talent as the biggest global barrier to the adoption of new technologies in the workplace.1 The number of job vacancies in the UK technology sector has reached its highest level since 2016.2 But attracting and securing technical talent has never been more challenging.
The increased demand for modern technology skills creates a huge opportunity for IT certification providers. Employers are looking to invest in a wider range of relevant skills and workers are recognizing the value of certifications to their career development. Certification bodies are helping to meet this increase in demand by scaling up their programs.
John Kleeman, Founder of Questionmark, said, “The pandemic has increased the scale of digital acceleration across the workforce. But firms can only take advantage of new technologies if their technical teams have the skills to make use of the latest innovations. And that talent is in short supply.
“Certification providers are working hard to help meet the skills shortage by offering more certifications and delivering them more quickly. A great way of reaching more candidates more quickly is to deliver secure online exams.”
