Secure Your Future

UKI remains sensitive to the fact that it's imperative that a course still provides the knowledge transfer in a way where industry certifications are achieved at class end with an outstanding pass rate percentage. UKI is an approved Pearson VUE Testing Partner. This makes it convenient for our clients IA and IT Workforce to schedule professional certification exams. UKI will work with your personnel to provide exams at the end of the training course or exams can be scheduled at a later date. This alleviates the necessity of sending personnel to an off-site testing location.
