For companies, organizations, and employers

Hiring experts in emerging technologies is often very difficult as most tech recruiters and even direct supervisors have difficulty identifying the right candidates due to the shortage of talent and lack of in-depth knowledge and direct experience.

Vendor companies often offer certification to show that a person has an understanding of the functionality of their particular tool or platform.  But that does not guarantee that the person being hired also understands how to adapt, apply, test, and deploy that tool in an the actual business application needed by the hiring organization.  Such a mismatch extracts heavy penalties in cost, time, and most importantly, customer service.

IIKI's certification program gives you added confidence that the person you're hiring can not only successfully develop, test, and deploy applications in a particular emerging technology, but also thoroughly understands how that technology satisfies your critical business performance needs.

Emerging Technologies

Emerging technologies are technologies whose development, practical applications, or both are still in the early stages but are rapidly gaining prominence and more importantly, are increasingly in demand by employers.  However, employers are seeking candidates who not only know the fundamentals and theory behind an emerging technology, but who can also demonstrate the ability to apply that technology by building, testing, and deploying real world applications.

While the number of new technologies keeps increasing, we will focus our efforts on those that are in highest demand, starting with AI and machine learning.

AI/ML Certification

The AI/ML Certification process begins by demonstrating your understanding of foundational knowledge in Machine Learning, AI, and analytics, and the role of those technologies in business performance and decision processes.  This includes AI/ML-based foundations in Statistics, Programming, and other core concepts, technologies, and techniques for developing AI/ML models and their production / deployment platforms.  This qualifies you for Foundation Level Certification.  Three additional levels follow: Maker, Expert, and Master (please see below for qualification requirements for each sub-specialty)…

Foundation Level Certification (applies to all AI/ML sub-specialties)

Candidate needs to pass a foundation exam which include the following topics:

  • 1) Mathematics
  • 2) Machine Learning Concepts
  • 3) Programming (Python/R)- Python is preferred.
  • 4) AI/ML model pipeline (CI/CD) – MLOPS (Data Engineering) Basics
  • 5) AI/ Machine Learning Platform (Main Cloud Platform)
  • 6) AI/ML Application (Use Case Scenarios)
    • 7) Customer Engagement (Knowledge of Business, Customer-Facing)
    • 8) Applied Statistics
    • 9) ML Algorithms (Knowledge of applying different algorithms for appropriate ML use cases)
    • 10) Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) – Data Visualization Techniques

    FAQ'S

    What are the major benefits of IIKI’s Certification Program?

    Our program benefits both employers and workers.

    For employers, they will have high confidence that an IIKI Certificate holder can immediately step in and start building real-world applications in a particular technology.

    For people seeking better employment opportunities, an IIKI Certificate will help them stand out from others who hold only academic credentials but little or no proof that they can actually perform the work.

    How is IIKI’s program different from others?

    The main problem we address is that many certifications require rigorous academic study and passing an exam – however, they rarely give any indication that the certificate holder can actually perform the work in a real world environment, including meeting cost, schedule, performance, and quality constraints.

    This results in employers hiring candidates with strong academic knowledge of a given subject, only to discover that the candidate struggles in applying that knowledge in the real world, including building a final product or even a working prototype.

    We address this problem by requiring our certificate candidates to demonstrate their ability to build working products that apply a particular technology.

    Each candidate’s work is carefully reviewed by an examination Board consisting of a minimum of three individuals recognized as experts in their field.

    What's the minimum eligibility requirement for each certification program?
