iACADEMY partners with Unity Technologies, one of the leading cross-platform game engines used to develop video games, making the school its official Authorized Training and Certification Partner Program in the Philippines.
The Unity Certification and Training is the first certification program for students and the only certification for game engines. It is an industry credential that has helped developers worldwide to validate their game design knowledge and skills in Unity to future employers. This gives students a competitive edge in the job market and in the Game Development industry.
“It is the first certification exam that we’re rolling out for students trying to enter the workplace. We’re trying to give them an additional leg-up against all the competition out there. It also gives the companies the ability to find the best talent as well as emerging talent in the market,” says the Head of Unity Education Asia, Mr. Evan Spytma.
To be a Unity Certified Developer, students are given access to the Unity Certified Developer Courseware in preparation for the certification exam. The courseware is a structured online program comprised of instructional videos with game project-based exercises that walks students through the process of making a game using Unity.
iACADEMY is proud to announce that several Game Development students became the first batch of Unity Certified Developers here in the Philippines! With the help of Mr. Evan Spytma, the students took their certification exam on March 20, 2017 and their class had a passing rate of 95.5%.
