Addressing a ceremony of signing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for establishment of CERTIPORT AUTHORIZED TESTING CENTRE (CATC) at newly established F-11 Campus of OPF Girls College Islamabad, the Advisor said that it is really commendable that OPF is doing a magnificent job in providing quality education to the children of overseas Pakistanis and general public throughout Pakistan.

Managing Director, OPF briefed the Advisor about the project and stated that in this competitive market, it has been witnessed that certifications give an edge to degree holders when they compete for jobs. In recent years, it has been observed that students during their studies also focus upon these certifications in order to enable themselves to compete in a job market immediately after securing their degrees. Certifications are usually awarded by credible organizations such as Certiport. It is a third-party assessment of one’s skills and knowledge for a given subject. He said that the establishment of CATC will help OPF to market these certifications amongst its students. Children of overseas Pakistanis will be offered discounted rates for certifications.
