Revanalytics to Offer CSDA and CSDP Certifications

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 17 June, 2010 –The IEEE Computer Society has signed a partnership agreement with Revanalytics, part of a Sri Lanka-based training consortium, to offer the Certified Software Development Associate (CSDA) and Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) training and certifications.
 
Under the agreement, Revanalytics will provide CSDP and CSDA training and certification in Sri Lanka at very affordable prices. The first CSDP training course will take place in mid-July at the Colombo International Nautical & Engineering College (CINEC) Maritime Campus, a state-of-the-art training facility in Malabe.
 
A qualified team of trainers from India will conduct the course. Training and assessment programs will be available to help college students and recent graduates pass the CSDA exam. Software developers with at least four years of work experience can prepare for the CSDP exam. 
 
The availability of the IEEE Computer Society’s CSDP and CSDA training and certification programs in Sri Lanka will provide a tremendous boost to the government’s declared aim to make the country a center for knowledge-based business activities. Officials also expect that it will help Sri Lanka attract business process outsourcing, knowledge-process outsourcing, and software development work.
 
The Computer Society’s CSDP program for mid-career professionals and CSDA credential for recent college graduates both confirm the skill and knowledge of those working in the field. The certifications are not only globally recognized but also help computer professionals seek lucrative employment and contracts in North America and Europe.
 
The Computer Society is also the producer of the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), which is the basis of both certifications. The guide can be purchased at http://www.computer.org/portal/web/swebok/purchase.
 
Companies that employ holders of CSDA and CSDP credentials not only enhance software quality processes within the organization, but also raise competence levels and grant recognition.
