CertNexus, United Training, and Logical Operations Join Forces to Develop Emerging Tech Workforce
May 23, 2022 Rochester, N.Y.

CertNexus is focused on increasing alternative learn-to-earn pathways by driving adoption of Emerging Technology certifications that feature Cybersecurity, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet of Things, and Ethics in Technology topics. A recently launched campaign is designed to create awareness and provide easy access to training options. United Training has joined the campaign to support training inquiries with a dedicated product page showcasing a complete lineup of CertNexus classes (https://unitedtraining.com/find-training/certnexus). Each class is delivered live via virtual instructor-led training by one of United Training's subject matter experts.

The CertNexus portfolio is focused on Emerging Technology topics that are driving digital transformation. “There are millions of unfilled emerging technology positions right now,” says Jeff Felice, President of CertNexus. “Reports show that demand for digital skills will only go up as companies around the world continue to drive initiatives that rely on data, analytics, artificial intelligence, IoT, and machine learning. With all that data being leveraged throughout organizations and the increasing volume of cyberattacks, cybersecurity remains a critical concern. Finally, ethical use of data has become a hot topic as organizations challenge themselves to be responsible with how data is used.” CertNexus certifications and supporting training materials are designed and tested by industry experts actively working in their respective disciplines.

Logical Operations has partnered with United Training since the company was formed over two years ago. “United Training is a thought leader,” says Jim Gabalski, Vice President of Logical Operations.  “From the moment we started working with them, we saw a forward-thinking mindset which makes them a fun partner to work with.” While Logical Operations provides the courseware materials that power the CertNexus offerings, United Training provides the training classes. “United Training was founded on the principle of providing modern training solutions,” says Jamie Fiely, Founder. “Our portfolio of training includes emerging technology topics, and we actively seek to have solutions ready before our customers even know they need them.” United Training has brought together a leadership team with over 100 years of Learning and Development experience and over 100 expert instructors that can teach on almost any topic imaginable.

The campaign is designed to reach out to individuals and organization leaders. Each organization brings best-in-class capabilities to support the skills development of the customer/student. United Training provides the expert-level training, while Logical Operations provides the training materials, and CertNexus provides the subject matter expertise and certifications. The program is funded by CertNexus.
