Through a PASSHE initiative, IUP students are now eligible to obtain Microsoft Fundamentals Certifications, free of charge.

IUP students are able to obtain these certifications to enhance their marketability in the job market. All course content is delivered online in a self-paced format. 

This initiative provides access to eight Microsoft Fundamentals certifications with subjects including Microsoft Azure, Power Platform, Dynamics 365, and Microsoft 365. Students are also eligible for discounts on other Microsoft courses not included in this initiative. 

Algorithms used by LinkedIn to find qualified candidates prioritize skills achieved through certifications or badges on a user's profile. After completing these courses, you can add a badge to your LinkedIn profile to improve your ranking in job searches by employers.
