This assignment is designed for you to take some time to explore the different certifications that several professional organizations offer. Obtaining a certification relating to your desired career interest is highly recommended, if not required when applying for jobs. This assignment will help you decide which certification would be most beneficial to you and your career; by exploring these different certifications, you will also get an understanding of the requirements to take the certification exam, as well as the material that you will be tested on.
Thinking back to the job listings you found for Job Listing Assignment, find and research one certification or license that are required/recommended by those employers – or one that you feel will benefit you in that field.

What a professional with this certification does, works with, and/or what it prepares you for
The requirements and process to sit for the certification or license exam (also include cost)
Overview of the domains and components the exam covers (exam content outline)
**I would highly suggest finding the certification handbook
