The new certifications include pools of exams from which learners can choose to create a certification that is more relevant and pertinent to their immediate needs. The ability to effectively customize expert-level certifications allows learners to choose the skills and knowledge they need, rather than following a rigid curriculum that may not be directly relevant, as often happened under the previous certification structure.
