ABIS and APG: to certify or not

Kris Van Thillo (ABIS) - 6 December 2012


ABIS interviews Robert Erdkamp (APG) on a Java certifcation training programme.

To certify or not ...

In some areas of technical ICT, APG decided some time ago to have its staff members certified. Obviously, because certification demonstrates professionalism. But also because it allows APG to stress the fact that both company and employees themselves are jointly responsible for employee evolution, including evolution within the area of ICT. It is something in which company and employees need to invest together.

An employee interview, followed by a careful inventarisation of any existing employee knowledge, allowed ABIS to develop a tailor-made training and coaching plan, aimed at Java certification. Collectively offered to all employees concerned, and based on a specific set of teaching methods.
