CIS Program Industry-Recognized Certification

Many students ask specifically which industry certifications are mapped to UCC Computer Information Systems courses. The list below outlines certifications by vendor and by course.

You must create a profile for yourself as part of the certification exam registration process. You should record your username, password, and site URL so that you can log into the site when you next need to do so. You will most likely create profiles at the CompTIA, Pearson Vue, and Prometric certification exam sites (see below).
