LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 30 April, 2013 – Global technical training firm Micro Academy has signed up as a Registered Education Provider to offer IEEE Computer Society software development preparation and training products to customers in India.
Based in Bangalore, India, Micro Academy will offer IEEE Computer Society's SWEBOK Certificate Program (SCP), and the Certified Software Development Associate (CSDA) and Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) credentials in both Northern and Southern India, especially in the states of Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, and West Bengal. Micro Academy Pvt. Ltd. provides high-end technical training and recruitment services to a broad spectrum of customers across India, Africa, and the Middle East.
"We welcome Micro Academy's expertise in offering training products to help fresh graduates secure employment and established computer professionals further advance their careers," said Angela Burgess, IEEE Computer Society Executive Director. "With so much technological innovation taking place in India, it is crucial that employers have a way to gauge the knowledge of candidates and employees—and IEEE Computer Society software development certifications, and educational training products provide a means to do this."
The SCP, consisting of four learning modules with 25-plus hours of instruction each, was created to raise a university student's understanding and proficiency of the 15 Knowledge Areas in the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), which provides the basis for IEEE Computer Society software development certifications.
Each completed module will result in a certificate. By completing the four modules, a student will have a solid understanding of the software development lifecycle. This will give students an excellent foundation as they embark on a career in software development, and provide a stepping stone to the CSDA certification.
The CSDA, designed for entry-level software developers, is intended to provide undergraduate computer science and software engineering students their first credential toward a solid career foundation as a software development practitioner. The CSDP, designed for mid-career professionals, helps software developments demonstrate their commitment to the profession and confirms their proficiency in the software development field.
"We at Micro Academy are happy to partner with IEEE Computer Society to offer trainings that hitherto were not available in India. We feel that both students, and corporate employees will benefit tremendously from these training programs," said Micro Academy CEO Aparajith Bhandary.
