IASA launches certification programme

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.

The UK chapter of the International Association of Software Architects (IASA) has launched a certification programme for IT architects.

The organisation aims to certify over 100 IT architects by the end of 2011, to either foundation or professional level. After completing a course and examination, a successful candidate will be recognised as a “Certified IT Architect” (CITA).

The programme commences at the end of June 2010, and will be delivered in partnership with Skills Matter, and in association with Microsoft UK.

“This is a very significant moment for IASA UK and for the UK IT architect profession as a whole. It represents the culmination of over five years effort in defining a program of education and certification for IT architects that scales world-wide,” said Matt Deacon, UK IASA Chair. “We are now in a position to offer existing IT architects a way to demonstrate their professional credibility, as well as providing aspiring IT architects with a platform to manage their careers and understand how best to progress towards professional status themselves.”

Further information is available from the IASA.
