Kuala Lumpur (3 December 2018) - Trainocate (M) Sdn Bhd and EPI announced a strategic partnership for the EPI IT Training Framework.
The EPI IT Training Framework is the FIRST and ONLY vendor-neutral competency-based IT Training Framework in the world for IT professionals who more than ever are required to keep up-to-date to remain relevant in the fast-paced and increasingly complex industry. It is also the first and only IT Training Framework aligned to the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF).
The program offers a career track at three levels; CITP (Certified IT Professional), CITS (Certified IT Specialist), and CITE (Certified IT Expert).
CITP is the first level and focuses on the skills, knowledge and competences required of the modern IT professional working at the entry level of IT. A person who has achieved the CITP certificate will be able to become instantly more productive having gained knowledge and understanding of the fundamental demands in modern IT infrastructures, increasing efficiency and significantly reduce the risk for errors.
CITS is the second level and designed to teach skills, knowledge and competences required of the modern IT specialist working at the senior engineer, team-leader, supervisor or management level in IT. A person who has achieved the CITS certification will have the competencies required to supervise/lead/manage IT teams successfully and deliver added value to their organisations.
CITE is the premier level that prepares candidates for senior leadership positions in IT. Candidates who have passed the CITE exam will be able to provide leverage in discussions with their senior peers translating business requirements to create a high quality IT strategy and governance model aimed at supporting the business.
According to Ruby Kaur, Country Manager, Trainocate Malaysia, “We are very excited about the CITP, CITS and CITE programs. It is a very comprehensive and unique training program covering the competences for junior IT executives to C-level executives and is fully aligned with a vendor-neutral IT competence framework. The courses will bring great benefits to the Malaysia IT workforce and help businesses navigate and be successful with the onslaught of digital disruptions.”
According to Jan Willem Mooren, Project Lead Developer for the CITP, CITS and CITE, “We are experiencing a range of ground breaking technology trends - from Blockchain, Big Data, to AI - which will have a profound effect on businesses. Businesses will need to be prepared and transform quickly or risk becoming irrelevant in their own industry. The same goes for any individual working in an IT related role from junior technician all the way up to senior IT managers. The CITP, CITS and CITE, courses are based on the e-Competence Framework (e-CF), designed to help IT professionals at all levels keep updated and stay relevant.”
According to Edward van Leent, Chairman & CEO, EPI Group of Companies, “It is my greatest pleasure to welcome Trainocate Malaysia as an EPI IT Training Framework partner.
