In its latest effort to safeguard the integrity and organic growth of the burgeoning, global Managed Service Provider (MSP) industry, the MSPAlliance (MSPA) (http://www.mspalliance.com) today announced that it would be launching a certification standard for individuals employed in the managed IT services industry. The Managed Services Professional Certificate will be formally launched at MSPWorld in Orlando on April 30, 2009.
"Just as the Managed Services Accreditation Program exam has become the de facto standard of excellence in the managed services world so do we believe the Managed Services Professional Certification will also become an accepted standard amongst individuals in our profession," said Jim Swoyer, president and CEO of Data Device and MSPAlliance board member.
"The Managed Services designation will be available to individuals who wish to demonstrate high levels of professionalism and accountability in their careers," said Mark Scott, CEO of The Utility Company and member of the accreditation/standards committee. "By focusing on the individual certification we now will be able to effectively communicate trust and professionalism to the end-user community."
Additional details about the certification will be made available at the MSPWorld Orlando event. Anyone wishing to take the MSPC exam should contact info (at) mspalliance (dot) com for more information.
The MSPAlliance is a professional association comprised of more than 8,000 managed service providers (MSPs) and service enabling technology vendors, which work in a collaborative effort to define, promote and educate the Managed Services Industry and the end-user consumer on the adoption and successful use of technology through Managed Services. The MSPAlliance is committed to increasing reliability and dependability in the industry surrounding the value and benefit of using Managed Service Providers to provide a wide range of mission-critical services.
