LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 11 July, 2013 – Portable around the world, the Certified Software Development Associate and Certified Software Development Professional are the first two certifications that conform to the ISO/IEC 24773 standard, which stipulates methods of certifying software engineering professionals worldwide. The basis of both certifications is the Computer Society's Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK).
The CSDA credential, intended for graduating software engineers and early-career software professionals, serves to bridge the gap between educational experience and real-world work. The CSDP credential, intended for mid-career professionals, confirms professionals' proficiency with established software development practices and demonstrates commitment and professionalism. IEEE Computer Society also offers a SWEBOK Certificate Program
(SCP), which students can take to prepare for the CSDA.
"At Siemens Development Center, over 3,500 technology professionals and domain experts focus on delivering technologically advanced, innovative software products with high quality, on time, and within budget. We have found the SWEBOK-based SCP, CSDA, and CSDP certifications from IEEE truly effective in preparing professionals to achieve these objectives. Considering the significant value SWEBOK courses have been bringing, we would prefer SWEBOK-certified engineers while hiring for new positions" said Dr. Raghu Nambiar, Associate Vice President, Technology Evaluation & Competences, Siemens Development Center, Siemens Technology and Services Pvt.
