HubSpot, the customer relationship management (CRM) platform for scaling companies, announced that its World Certification Week event will take place from 2- 6 August 2021.
First introduced and founded by HubSpot as World Certification Day in 2020, the event has grown into a week-long global, virtual event that encourages professionals around the world to dedicate their entire week to learning by completing HubSpot Academy certifications.
For every certification awarded, HubSpot will donate $5 to an education-focused nonprofit (up to $35,000); certifications secured in Australia and New Zealand will count toward a donation to the GO Foundation, with all other regions going to Teach For All’s Global Girls’ Education Fellowship. In 2020, HubSpot donated $20,000 to UNICEF thanks to certifications completed on World Certification Day.
Spitfire Inbound is taking part in a couple of ways and you can get involved too!
Our staff have been waiting for this day for a while, taking training courses and preparing ourselves to get certified within the first week of August. We aim to spend time each day taking certifications.
We believe in the power of our Youth so we will be embarking on a truly South African initiative to support Youth Employment Services (YES).
For every certification a Spitfire team member or Spitfire client completes as part of World Certification week we will donate 10 minutes to YES to allow them to use our HubSpot support, consulting or training services. Up to a maximum of 60 hours will be donated to support this project that is close to our hearts.
Last year, in just ONE DAY we managed to complete 73 certifications so we are hoping that between Spitfire and our clients we can achieve 360 certifications over the week and donate the maximum number of hours to this cause.
HubSpot Academy offers a wide variety of courses that will help you learn and grow, for an excellent cause. The topics covered include:
Interested participants can get a head start now by going to HubSpot Academy, choosing the certifications they want to complete, and starting their courses and videos but only complete the certification exam during the first week of August. Each certification completed between August 2 and August 6, including recertifications and multiple certifications achieved by the same learner, represents $5 toward supporting education around the world.
Sign up below to join our Certification Day where we will have staff available to assist you with any certification related queries!
Spitfire Inbound Academy will be holding a full day of support where we will have a Spitfire team member available at all times who can assist with answering any questions and where we can encourage each other in taking as many certifications as we can. Let us all dedicate Wednesday 4 August to a day of learning!
You can send an email to email@example.com or reach out to your Spitfire inbound contact if you have any questions.
YES is business-led collaboration that seeks out ground breaking ways, through innovation and technological best practice, to reignite the economy and give youth a dignified first chance.
The YES 12-month quality work experience equips unemployed youth with a toolkit to be a beacon of hope for their families, households and communities. The CV & reference letter they get at the end of their 12-months gives them a 3 x greater chance of an interview call-back.
