The Certified Ethical Emerging Technologist (CEET) is designed for individuals seeking to demonstrate a vendor neutral, cross-industry, and multidisciplinary understanding of applied technology ethics that will enable them to navigate the processes by which ethical integrity may be upheld within emerging data-driven technology fields (such as artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), data science and information security).

Technology professionals now face growing demands to identify and mitigate ethical risks to human rights and the environment, as well as to navigate ethical tradeoffs between qualities such as privacy and accuracy, fairness and utility, and safety and accountability. This course provides the tools to identify and manage common ethical risks in the development of emerging data-driven technologies. It distills ethical theory, public regulations, and industry best practices into concrete skills and guidelines needed for the responsible development of digital products and services. By following the course's practical, problems-based approach, learners will become adept at applying theories, principles, frameworks, and techniques in their own roles and organisations.

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the CET-110 exam, which is included in the course and get your CertNexus Certified Ethical Emerging Technologist (CEET) certification. As a CertNexus Authorised Training Partner, you’ll learn from certified instructors, and get access to official courseware and exams.
