"Certiport aims to improve the real-world technology skills of individuals all over the world, and we are excited to approach the milestone of delivering 10 million certification exams," said Ray Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, Certiport. "We want individuals to celebrate with us and realize that certification helps to open doors, improve opportunities, increase efficiencies and establish relevance. And that's worth celebrating."

Certiport's milestone campaign includes the Power of 10 Video Challenge and a Power of 10 Guessing Challenge, both launching today. Video submissions should detail the value of certification and can be submitted until May 31, 2011, when 10 finalists will be chosen for voting. The grand prize video will be announced on June 10.

"The value of certification is not just in a piece of paper, it is in the way it changes lives," Kelly added. "Certification validates computing excellence, in-depth knowledge and real-world skills. It differentiates and elevates the individual from the crowd."
