NZCS Consultation Workshop on Professional Certification
Wintec City Campus (Gate 5)
The Bill Gallagher Hub
Anglesea Street, Hamilton
(Assemble from 5pm for a start at 5:30pm sharp)
This is your chance to have your say about the upcoming Professional Certification Programme.
IITP is in the process of designing and implementing a Professional Certification Programme for ICT Professionals.
This internationally-aligned certification has the potential to redefine our profession, and put ICT on equal footing with other professions, such as Accountancy, Medicine and Engineering.
"Professional Certification" is the cornerstone of a profession, and helps define and recognise true professionals. This is an overarching certification and is NOT the same as technical certifications; ie it is similar to "Chartered Accountant" or "Chartered Engineer" certifications for those professions rather than technical certifications (such as Microsoft or Cisco certs), although technical certifications are aligned with it.
This facilitated interactive workshop is your chance to not just hear about the detail of how this programme will work, but to provide significant feedback into the process as well.
Senior IITP staff will work through the details step by step then lead discussion around why particular routes have been chosen and decisions made, other options available, and what the participants believe are the best options.
Everyone is welcome. Professional Certification is for the entire sector - not just existing IITP members - and we encourage everyone to come along and get involved.
Consequently, please pass this invitation along to anyone you believe may be interested in attending.
The full model will be released at the beginning of March and sent to everyone on the IITP Mailing List.
In the meantime, please visit www.nzcs.org.nz/certification for more information, particularly the "Certification Update" document and Frequently Asked Questions.
