PRESS RELEASE: Microsoft Office and Technology Certifications launch in Finland

XoomPoint Corporation provides Microsoft’s Office and Technology software certifications to training organizations in the Finnish market. The XoomPoint - Certiport partnership makes the globally highly recognized and extremely popular certification programs of Microsoft software available to the Finnish market.

Certifications are valuable, professional credentials which are globally recognized standards for digital literacy and desktop computing proficiency. In today’s rapidly internationalizing labor market the advantage of holding globally recognized certifications will only grow. In labor markets outside Finland, Microsoft Office (MOS) and Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certifications are already hard currency. In 2015 alone, roughly 1.2 Million MOS certifications were taken. "One of the benefits of globally recognized certifications are, that every candidate has gone through exactly the same testing routines. The digital literacy and proficiency of the certified candidates are 100% comparable", says Riikka Hagman, CEO of XoomPoint. "Certiport is the largest provider of certifications and their portfolio is very impressive, so we certainly are proud of this partnership," Mrs. Hangman continues.

"Certiport feels particularly proud and happy to have achieved an agreement with Xoompoint to be the Certiport Solution Provider in Finland. Xoompoint, with its history of illustrious experience in the Learning field, is the perfect partner to make sure that students find the right match between what they learn and what they can show to have actually learnt. Yes, we definitely consider this agreement one of the most important achieved in the recent years and look forward to this cooperation." says Alessandro Macri, Certiport’s General Manager for DACHs, Nordics and Eastern Europe.

There are over 14,000 Certiport Authorized Testing Centers (CATCs) worldwide, of which 6,000 are in Europe. "We are very excited to be able to offer Finnish training organizations the possibility to set up Testing Centers," states Hagman. "The opportunity to provide certifications as a part of the training supply is a great addition to existing training services and is definitely a positive thing for the students/customers."

Early Spring this year, XoomPoint launched its eLearning Webstore with focus on eLearning tools and products. The Webstore enables customers to buy their certification vouchers online, which makes the purchase process really easy and fast. At the initial stage, Certiport support material such as guides, tests and learning material can be purchased solely by contacting XoomPoint sales.”
