Dubai, October 5, 2011
Pearson VUE, a leader in computer-based testing (CBT), will be showcasing its testing solutions at the upcoming Gitex Technology Week expo in Dubai.
The key solutions will include observational testing, a professional learning online marketplace and a new credential management system, said a company statement.
Pearson VUE will be joined by fellow Pearson businesses at the biggest ICT event in the region, where more than 3,500 vendors will connect with over 136,000 professionals.
With the company’s assessment experts and clients, including Cisco, CompTIA and BCS the Chartered Institute for IT, on hand throughout the event, Pearson VUE will enable attendees to establish beneficial and lasting business relationships.
As part of Pearson VUE’s biggest ever presence at Gitex, the company will also host a networking seminar providing tips on how to grow businesses, offer new training programmes and highlight the latest quality and security requirements.
A series of discussions will also take place, informing of recent developments within the industry.
In collaboration with Society of Engineers - a Pearson VUE Test Centre Select - the company is offering candidates the opportunity to sit Cisco, CompTIA and BCS the Chartered Institute for IT exams at discounted rates during the event.
Tim Cardinal, group product manager, at BCS the Chartered Institute for IT, said, 'This is our first Gitex show and we will be using the event to develop our presence across the region.'
'Our desire is to provide meaningful IT certification to candidates across the Middle East, in the same way we do in the UK and across the globe,' he added.
Suzana Lopes, managing director of New Markets at Pearson VUE, said the assessment industry was changing rapidly and IT sponsors in particular were adopting new technologies and solutions to deliver more comprehensive learning and testing methods.
'These innovations are helping them provide better lifetime testing experiences for candidates in their ongoing professional journeys. Our team of dedicated assessment experts, and colleagues from other parts of Pearson, will ensure our most significant presence at the event yet.,' she added.-TradeArabia News Service
