CertNexus, an IT certification company, is thrilled to announce the availability of both the Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP) and CyberSec First Responder™ (CFR) beta exams. CertNexus is committed to providing certifications that validate the skills and knowledge needed for cyber security and IoT emerging technology. Our flagship exam, CIoTP, will ensure that candidates have a foundational, vendor-neutral knowledge of concepts within an Internet of Things (IoT) eco-system. CFR validates a candidate’s ability to assess, analyze, and respond to cybersecurity incidents. Both high-stakes exams are offered online through our partnership with Assessment Systems, allowing the convenience of 24/7 scheduling at one’s home or office.
Intended for professionals in IT, engineering, data, and project management whose organizations are embarking on IoT initiatives, CIoTP candidates will be able to efficiently identify the applications for IoT within a market and identify the benefits and challenges that IoT would present. The CIoTP exam covers risk management for IoT as well as IoT safety concerns. CertNexus ensures that candidates will have a proficient understanding of the characteristics of an IoT ecosystem such as end-point devices, edge/fog computing, networks, and the cloud.

“Rolling out the beta versions of the exam is a valuable step in our exam development,” says Megan Smith Branch, Vice President for CertNexus. “It allows us to collect feedback on the exam and comply with our high standards as we seek ANSI (American National Standards Institute) accreditation. It is highly unusual for a certification body to launch two exams at once, but it allows us to be relevant to changing technologies.”
The CIoTP beta exam is now available on the CertNexus store for $40 ($250 MSRP) through August 6. The new online delivery provides remote proctoring allowing the candidate to take the exam from home. Upon passing the exam, the candidate will become CIoTP certified. The new CertNexus CyberSec First Responder (CFR-310) beta exam is available through July 17th.
CertNexus focuses on providing certifications specifically for IT professionals. Through training and certifications, we address the massive skills shortage throughout information technology. CertNexus certifications have been developed to meet the growing demand for skills validation and personal growth, and designed to ultimately narrow the widening skills gap within cybersecurity and the IT industry.
