    IT professionals urged to update qualifications

    ICTTech qualification relaunched to address stagnant job market

    The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) has relaunched a qualification originally introduced a year ago in a bid to stimulate the IT jobs market.

    The professional registration category is an internationally recognised qualification awarded by the Engineering Council to Information and Communications Technology Technicians (ICTTech).

    It is designed to recognise the expertise and hard work of ICT professionals in areas such as hardware, software or system installation, operation, maintenance, incident/change/problem management, administration, security, fault diagnosis and fixing.

    The IET is putting greater emphasis on promoting ICTTech and its other professional qualifications to encourage IT pros to maintain and update their qualifications, given the intense competition for fewer IT jobs in today's economic environment.

      Hi Ken,

      Sounds to me like an English version of CompTIA. :twisted:

      These articles actually wind me up quite a bit.

      If you wan't to sell me your product then do so, do not insult our intelligence by pushing the re-launch of a product that failed to take off originally as an attempt to stimulate the I.T market.

      At least it's a change from the monthly warning from the usual suspects (a study has shown that 50% of all wireless blah, blah, blah etc.........) about the dangers of viruses, malware and replying to e-mails from helpful nigerians wanting to give you cash.

      Slightly different, alot of qualifications just show how well you do at taking exams. However the ICTTech mark (like the CITP, IEng, CEng, etc) show's/demostrates that you work at a certain level, something that can't be braindumped. So it works hand-in-hand with certifications as well as your experience.
