Continuing its path of growth and development, PeopleCert has also completed its acquisition of QAI certifications.

Fitch also upgraded PeopleCert to B+ from B with a Stable Outlook and expects Free Cash Flow (FCF) to remain strong over the next four years.

In addition to the upgrade, PeopleCert has completed the acquisition of QAI certifications in Business Analysis, Software Testing and Software Quality.
