Why should I take vendor-authorized training?

With ExitCertified, you will only receive vendor-certified training. Sometimes gray-market vendors are more interested in simply “teaching to the test,” and create a curriculum that is so focused on certification test preparation that they lose sight of the fact that training is also supposed to help people improve at their job. Find about more about the case for vendor-authorized instructor-led training
