Ask Away Blog: The Importance of Online Certifications

The Importance of Online Certifications

Sunday, May 24, 2020



Whether someone goes to college or not, there are many times in any given career path where you can benefit from certifications for your field specifically.  Maybe it's for job skills for your current job or maybe it's for skills that will help you get a promotion, but either way, online certifications are a great thing these days.  Rather than having to go away for a trip to take a week long class followed by an exam, you can actually do it all from the comfort of your own home by getting an online certification such as one from Scrum Institute.  The International Scrum Institute is an independent education provider that has affordable online certifications.  So what are the benefits of this type of certification? Well, let's take a look.



Convenience is obviously a huge factor because you don't have to leave your home or even your town if you can do the certifications while at your current job.  That means you can have more of a work life balance and really set your own schedule when possible. 


Finances are another huge win with an online certification like this.  You generally don't have to take out a loan for it and your current employer may even cover the costs if it's for a way to advance you in your current role.  Either way, you're saving money to end up making more money eventually because you'll have the certifications earned. 

It's also an enriching experience to learn more and become certified in something.  For many of us, we've been out of school for so long that an actual education setting is a foreign thing to us.  It really does feel satisfying to learn something new and to officially get certified on that topic. 

You also get to primp up your resume with your certifications which is certainly an impressive thing if you're looking for a new career path or even just to get promoted within a company you currently work for.  Getting online certifications also shows you are a go getter and are willing to learn new things. Better yet, in an interview when they ask if you know how to do something that you don't, you can proudly state that you are more than willing to learn it because your certification history will show that. 

Sometimes a career requires a college degree up front but during the course of your career there are other certifications and new skills your employer wants you to learn so online certifications make that much more easy and convenient plus it's so affordable you don't really have an excuse not to do it.  

For some that get nervous in classroom settings, doing it in the comfort of your own home is much easier on the nerves and allows you to focus and concentrate even better.   So whatever you choose to do, never forget that online certifications exist and can be a wonderful option for you to get further in the working world.
