IT professionals will benefit from a new partnership between FOCUS on TRAINING and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
The Institute has, through its professional examination arm ISEB, developed a collection of training courses and certifications which are the benchmark for information systems best practice. The exams provide IT specialists with professional development routes in a variety of areas, including IT Service Management, Business Analysis, Systems Development, Software Testing and Information Security.
Visitors to the ISEB website can now access the nationwide schedule for these courses and book places online. The training is delivered by specialist training companies that have each been accredited by ISEB. A central booking service is provided by FOCUS on TRAINING.
Stephen Daniels of the BCS explains: “As the Chartered Institute for IT, we chose to work with FOCUS as they already offer a highly effective search and book facility in their specialist fields of Project Management and IT Service Management. Moreover, the status of 8,000 courses is updated daily. As well as enabling fast and efficient course booking, FOCUS is able to provide expert and impartial advice that will help IT professionals continue to enable the information society.”
The initial phase of this collaboration is in the UK and Ireland providing a comprehensive database of ISEB accredited Business Analysis, Software Testing, IT Governance, and ITIL training courses in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow - and 20 other cities.
For the most popular certification tracks such as the ISEB Business Analysis Diploma, ISEB Software Testing and ITIL, FOCUS offers explanatory guides which can be downloaded free of charge.
Certifications from ISEB such as ITIL® are complemented on the FOCUS website with other widely respected “best practice” training such as PRINCE2® and MSP®.
