QAI Crosses the 35,000 Mark in Software Certifications in the Field of Quality Assurance and Software Testing
Individuals Certified in 43 Countries, Organizations Sending Employees in Large Numbers
Orlando, Florida, United States, Wednesday, February 11, 2009 — (Business Wire India) — QAI Global Institute (www.qaiworldwide.org) having established the international standard for Software Quality and Software Testing Certifications including the Certified Software Quality Analyst (CSQA) and Certified Software Tester (CSTE) announced that they have certified in excess of 35,000 professionals worldwide in 43 countries including Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom, Thailand, Philippines, United Arab Emirates and the United States. And also, now with QAI’s partnership with Prometric, the software certifications are available in 135 countries which has increased the reach and frequency of the examination even more.
Software certifications (www.softwarecertifications.org) are increasingly being taken up by large organizations to give their employees global recognition. Accenture has over 2000 and Infosys has over 4400 professionals certified, which is testimony to the growing trend. These certifications are taken to consistently assess the employee’s skill sets. The growing demand of individual certifications models itself on the success of organizations undertaking assessments at company levels, like CMMi® and COPC® which become the defacto standard for quality and consistency.
Tom Ticknor, Chief Operating Officer, QAI said, “The recognition of the CSTE and CSQA certifications by many of the world’s largest IT organizations has greatly increased the value of the certifications. In fact, many corporations require the CSTE or CSQA for continued employment.” Mr. Ticknor went on to say, “the longevity of the program has allowed many of the CSQA’s and CSTE’s to reach high management levels in their organizations and now encourage their QA and testing staff to become certified.”
