QAI Global Institute to improve candidate experience and grow software certifications with Pearson VUE
DELHI, INDIA, November 6, 2013 — QAI Global Institute, the global program administrator for the International Software Certification Board (ISCB), is partnering with Pearson VUE to meet the growing demand for both entry-level and management-level software certification worldwide.
QAI offers 11 certifications covering software quality, software testing, project management, process engineering and business analysis, and the partnership with Pearson VUE will facilitate the growth of test volumes across the globe. The partnership also offers complete candidate convenience to test when and where they require. Previously, QAI’s pen & paper tests were delivered on fixed dates, whereas candidates can now schedule and sit their tests at their convenience at test centres across the globe, and also at 300 test centres in India.
Navyug Mohnot, CEO, QAI Global Institute, said: “Certified software experts are in high demand in many markets as the reliance on software in all sectors of industry has grown to unprecedented levels and in turn there is a greater need to drive standardisation of competency. Through Pearson VUE, we will be more able to meet the demand for certified professionals, not only through their extensive test centre network but also through their expertise in growing volumes.”
Bob Whelan, President and CEO, Pearson VUE, said: “We have a heritage of supporting global IT certification bodies to both target and reach their candidates and we look forward to applying our experience to meet QAI’s goals.”
