David Brennan, General Manager, Etisalat Academy, said: "CompTIA certifications will build Etisalat Academy and the Gulf region's competitive differentiation because of their broad global market acceptance.

Keeping in view the existing and emergent technology trends, these certifications will go a long way in catering to market needs and making ETAC a leader in offering customized IT certifications."
Todd Thibodeaux, Chief Executive Officer, CompTIA said: "In the IT industry professional certification is a clear differentiator when it comes to hiring, promotion and wages.

We're pleased to team with Etisalat Academy for the delivery of our cutting-edge foundational certifications, which provide a comprehensive measurement of the core technology competencies and knowledge that should be in any IT professional's skill set."
The value of CompTIA Certification means improvement in career outcomes for ETAC participants as they qualify candidates for high growth IT jobs, increased compensation and promotional opportunities.
Participants who complete the program successfully will be issued Certificates by CompTIA. The trainings will be delivered in English language at Etisalat Academy.
Etisalat Academy is committed to high quality standards, with its ISO 9001 certification. We are constantly re-engineering the learning process in order to bridge the divide between the training environment and the workplace.
