Measuring the value and return on investment (ROI) of certification training programs is a critical undertaking for organizations today. As the importance of certifications grows, so does the need to accurately assess the impact and effectiveness of these programs. However, many organizations face challenges when it comes to measuring the value and ROI of their certification training initiatives.

A 2020 research study on student perceptions of barriers to professional exam success shows that those who passed their exam attribute their accomplishment to beneficial tools such as purchased review manuals and online exam simulators. These tools included practice questions, quizzes, and other interactive components and proved more effective than their own notes and materials. Unsuccessful respondents, in turn, cited feeling unprepared and distressed as reasons for their lack of achievement.
