Certified Practitioners are Trusted Team Members

82% of organizations prefer hiring candidates with certifications. The right certification could be what gets your foot in the door at almost any enterprise.

GIAC certifications are listed as preferred qualifications on thousands of job postings across the globe. That's because employers know that GIAC certifications are a guarantee of critical skill mastery.

A GIAC certification signals to HR teams and hiring managers that you have the specific job-role skills needed to succeed in a real-world work environment. No matter the skill level or specialization that interests you, GIAC has the credentials you need.


Certifications Create Confidence

Ultimately, one of the main motivations for getting certified come from within. Obtaining certifications allows you to quiet the “what ifs” and “if onlys.” When you succeed, you’ll not only be confident in your abilities, but will be proud of what you’ve achieved.
