Is 2020 the year you get certified?

This live online-delivered workshop/webinar is designed to help you answer that question and if so, help you get started.

Chartered IT Professional NZ (CITPNZ) and Certified Technologist (CTech) are the two professional certifications offered by ITP. But why do we offer them and do they really matter?

CITPNZ and CTech are professional certifications as opposed to technical certifications. This means that rather than assessing whether you can do specific tasks with specific technologies, they independently confirm that you:

  • Know what you're doing (in your chosen area)
  • Keep up to date in your field
  • Are trustworthy
  • Are bound by a Code of Ethics, and
  • Can demonstrate actual results

In short, you're someone that the professional body of the sector has independently assessed and can endorse as a bona fide professional. It's not a guarantee that you'll always get it right; but it is a commitment that if you breach your ethical responsibilities, the professional community can hold you to account.

This webinar starts with a run-through of what they are and why (from a high level), followed by a detailed walkthrough of how to apply and plenty of time for Q&A.
