Why 2019 is the year you should pursue Aruba certification

By Jenna Godsil, Sales Enablement Leader

A recent survey shows Aruba Certified Mobility Expert (ACMX) is the most highly compensated Wi-Fi certification, beating out Cisco’s CCIE-W and CCNP on a global average to the tune of $30,000.

“We are growing at three to four times the market rate, which is driving a great demand into the market for Aruba Certified Professionals. Our customers and partners are looking for the top talent in the industry – and they are looking to our ACMX certification as the new bar,” said Chris Gaito, head of worldwide sales enablement at Aruba.

This does not surprise me at all…Why? Because Aruba continues to grow as a visionary in the wireless networking industry, attracting new customers with our innovative solutions to create smarter digital experiences for their customers. More and more organizations are turning to Aruba for IT solutions that empower the growing market of consumers who rely on cloud-based apps in their daily lives.

Now while you may know about the amazing experiences Aruba creates for our customers, what you may not realize is the wealth of experience, knowledge and skill that it takes to design, implement, troubleshoot and maintain a complex enterprise network. Becoming an Aruba Certified Mobility Expert (ACMX) is no walk in the park.

“It takes a special type of IT professional to dedicate the time and practice it takes to become an Aruba certified expert and it is great to see these professionals rewarded for their knowledge, experience and expertise,” added Gaito.

That's why employers are shelling out the big bucks to hire an Aruba certified professional. As organizations continue to look to Aruba for innovative solutions, they will continue to look to the pool of Aruba certified professionals to tackle enterprise mobility projects.
