The main project objective, which arises from the new business strategy focusing on the external market, is to increase the company competitiveness and strengthen its current market position.

The most of the world renowned hardware and software manufacturers offer to advanced users of their technologies the option to demonstrate their expertise skills through obtaining specific certification titles, and thus obtain many benefits, either from the manufacturer, customers or employers. In some areas, the certification is not only a guarantee of holder’s professional qualities, but also becomes a necessity for cooperation with both the manufacturer and customer. Certificates are therefore a unique criterion of professionalism, in addition to the international validity.
