SkillUp Online helped me a lot during my training and placement. They were always ready to help me as a guide and a mentor. They have provided a wonderful atmosphere for learning.

Keshav Kumar Jha, Placed Learner

SkillUp Online’s training was great, with interactive classes and useful doubt clearing sessions. We also received placement assistance for both HR and technical interviews and I was able to clear all my doubt

IBM certification courses enable you to gain knowledge and skills in a specific area and demonstrate to employers that you have a particular level of competence in certain role-related tasks and activities. Also, as you complete IBM certification courses and gain a professional certificate, both your colleagues and your managers are able to correctly gauge your level of expertise. Certification also provides evidence that you have a good level of proficiency in the related IBM technologies.

Yes, IBM online courses and program are mentored. As part of our mentoring service, you will have access to valuable guidance and support throughout these IBM online courses and programs. We provide a dedicated discussion space where you can ask questions, chat with your peers, and resolve issues. Depending on the payment plan you have chosen, you may also have access to live classes and webinars, which are an excellent opportunity to discuss problems with your mentor and ask questions. Mentoring services may vary package wise.

Many IBM online courses and programs are self-paced, which means they don’t run to a fixed schedule with regard to completing courses or submitting assignments. However, as long as a particular IBM course or program is completed before the end date, you can work at your own pace. The materials for each course module will become available when you start a particular IBM online course.

Yes, IBM Professional Certificate courses and programs offered through SkillUp Online are 100% online. You do not need to attend any classes in person. As long as you have the required technology to access the internet and use the course/program materials such as articles, videos, and Q&A knowledge checks, and as long as you are able to do all the assignments, it will be possible to complete the courses and programs wherever you live in the world.

However, please don’t worry or feel that you are learning alone. Assisted mentoring and contact with others taking the courses and programs is available via the discussion space. So, if you have any questions or are stuck on something, this is the ideal way to get help.

On SkillUp Online, any IBM Professional Certificate course you take will earn you a badge (Professional Certificate). Thus, if you enroll for a program, for example, the IBM Data Science Professional Certificate Program, then you will gain an IBM Professional Certificate for each course you complete within the program. Plus, you will gain IBM Data Science Professional Certification once you have successfully completed the entire program.

All certificates are issued electronically, and you are then able to upload them to your social media profiles. IBM Professional Certificates are extremely valuable additions to your LinkedIn profile.

Once you’ve built up some solid background knowledge in a field, you need to start studying. There will be opportunities to learn through a work placement but getting some qualifications under your belt will help secure those positions. There are two main routes to consider: taking a degree in an associated subject, or gaining valuable alternative qualifications, such as professional certification.

Degrees : A degree will enable you to apply for a good entry level position once you’ve graduated. However, degrees take time, they are costly, and you need to have the right qualifications to enroll onto a degree course in the first place.

IBM Professional Certifications : Certifications give you an excellent grounding in a subject and provide you with the startup skills you need to begin your career. They’re ideal if you prefer to learn as you work, or you don’t have the financial means or qualifications to take a degree. Over time, you are able to build a sought-after skillset and become an attractive proposition to employers.

IBM Professional Certification is recognized and valued by employers around the world. IBM Professional Certificates enable learners to earn credentials in a specific area, and these credentials clearly demonstrate to employers that an individual has a particular level of competence in certain role-related tasks and activities. When you gain an IBM Professional Certificate, both your colleagues and your managers are therefore able to correctly gauge your level of expertise. 

For example, the IBM Applied AI Professional Certificate Program is an excellent way for individuals to begin a career in AI. Certification demonstrates that you have a firm understanding of AI, its applications, and its use cases. It also provides evidence that you have a good level of proficiency in the related IBM technologies.  

IBM Professional Certificates earned through SkillUp Online are issued by IBM.
