Telecom network maker Nokia announced the launch of two new professional level 5G certifications.
Industrial Automation Networks and Distributed Cloud Networks are part of Nokia’s program to train and certify industry professionals on 5G technology, from network access to application management.
Registrations for the first two courses in Nokia’s 5G learning program totaled more than 22,000 globally across many industries since their launch last year.
The new certifications highlight the potential of 5G to revolutionize industries from manufacturing to transportation, to healthcare and more. The Nokia 5G Readiness Report found that by 2030, 5G will deliver $8 trillion in value to businesses, economies and societies.
Together, the Distributed Cloud Networks and Industrial Automation Networks trainings reveal how 5G can greatly improve industry performance. Its enhanced speed and ultra reliable low latency produces tangible increases in safety, productivity and efficiency.
Over the next five years, 71 percent of companies will invest in 5G technology – with the potential to add $8 trillion in value to businesses, economies and societies globally by 2030. The
“5G Certification program help business leaders and technology professionals to plan and adapt their business processes to take advantage of Industry 4.0,” Sergio Fasce, vice president of People Services, the learning and development branch of Nokia, said.
The Nokia Bell Labs 5G Certification Program focuses on the knowledge and skills professionals need to make the most of 5G’s capabilities. Gaining a certification by passing the associated exam will establish industry-recognized professional credentials.
Two additional professional level certifications in Network Slicing and Secure Networks will be released later in 2021. Each course has approximately a 6-hour run time which can be completed at the learner’s own pace.
