In addition, the agreement places PUE as the only Gold Solution Provider in the entire EMEA region (Europe, Middle East & Africa). “For us it is a challenge and at the same time a confirmation of the good work done by promoting the Certiport certifications market,” says Javier Domínguez, CEO of PUE. Also, he adds: “we believe in the added value of official training aimed at certifying students as a safe bet for their professional development, qualification and increasing employability statistics”.

With the recruitment of more than 1.200 Certiport Authorized Certification centres in the last 20 years, PUE has become a key player in the deployment of official ICT certifications in different areas, such as Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS), and Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA). A task recognized by Certiport that has led the multinational to designate PUE as its strategic partner in Spain.

Thanks to the new agreement signed between both organizations, PUE will bring certifications distributed by Certiport to educational centres and the academic community, including examinations for multinational companies such as Microsoft, Adobe, Autodesk, EC-Council and Apple, among others.
