Business Professionals of America (BPA) is pleased to announce Certiport, a Pearson VUE business, as Presenting Sponsor of the 2022 National Leadership Conference that will be held May 4–8 in Dallas, Texas. Certiport, a Pearson VUE business, is the leading provider of performance-based IT certification exams that accelerate academic and career opportunities for learners.
BPA’s National Leadership Conference, presented by Certiport, will bring together an estimated six thousand students (from middle school to post-secondary), educators and professionals from across the country. Students in attendance will vie for top honors in business, finance, technology, marketing and health administration skills competitions. They will also have opportunities to attend leadership and professional development workshops, receive awards for community service activities and elect BPA’s 2022–2023 national student leadership team.
“Certiport has been a valued partner for many years—providing tens of thousands of BPA student members and advisors with an opportunity to obtain relevant workforce-demanded certifications and we are delighted to have them as our 2022 Presenting Sponsor,” said Steve Darnell, BPA’s Interim Executive Director.
“At Certiport, we are dedicated to helping people succeed through certification. We are thrilled to partner with BPA to give their students an opportunity to grow and learn through certification,” said Ray Murray, Vice President and General Manager, Certiport.
“For our student members and their advisors, the trip to Dallas is the culmination of a year’s work,” Darnell said. “Generous support from partners such as Certiport who believe in our educational mission helps us create learning and career development opportunities through the year.”
Certiport will offer nearly 50 software and technology certifications, including the industry standard Information Technology (IT) Specialist certification, during the conference in Dallas. Many certifications are aligned with BPA’s Workplace Skills Assessment Program (WSAP) events in which student members are competing.
