“Aspiring developers, who are looking for a job in the games industry and may not yet have the benefit of years of experience or an extensive portfolio, are looking for a way to communicate their skills to potential employers, for this reason we developed the Unity Certification Program, and at GDC 2016 we were thrilled to announce that the first level, Unity Certified Developer, is now available! – Unity Team
During the second half of 2016, students will be given the opportunity to achieve this prestigious certification. The Unity Certified Developer Exam was designed to provide a credential that validates foundational skills for making a game with Unity, spanning key concepts in both technical art and programming. This globally recognised credential will help students communicate their skills to employers and successfully transition into a professional career in games.
“This is just one of our major course content updates and releases we will be rolling out during 2016, there’s much more in the pipeline. It’s definitively an exciting time for ICE Malta and for upcoming talent who select ICE Malta as their training partner. – Nikolai Sammut, ICE Malta Co-Founder.
