The Disadvantages of Working with Non-Certified IT Professionals

Common sense dictates that you should be working with a fully certified IT services provider. For emphasis though, especially for those people who prioritize the cost of each service, working with non-certified IT providers has its consequences.

Limited skills

In all industries, skills are indispensable. One such industry that requires specialized skills is IT. This is what provides real value to each client. Most IT skills are obtained through proper training. The certification is the evaluation of the scope or extent of skills gained. says without certification, it would be difficult to gauge the skills level of the provider.

Limited experience

Although the certification cannot necessarily indicate the level of experience the IT professional obtained, the certification itself is key in gaining more knowledge necessary to complete more jobs and projects. If you have limited skills in IT servicing, the experience you will receive will be constrained to that insufficient skills sets you have.

Limited expertise

Limitations in skills, knowledge and experience may also mean limited expertise since there is no room for more opportunities. If you will be employed, the tasks delegated will only be based on what you can do. This may work in two ways. First, you will develop the expertise for one to two particular tasks, which is good. Second, you will be constrained to these tasks, which is a not so good situation. New roles can be given unless you up skill.

Again, if you are a client commissioning an IT work to a non-certified provider, don’t expect too much because of the limited skills, experience, and expertise. It would only be a waste of time, energy and money dealing with them. With that said, to ensure that you are getting your money’s worth, deal with certified providers.
