Open Group certifications to count towards Chartered IT Professional status

Open Group certifications to count towards Chartered IT Professional status

Initial review and interview part of the CITP process can be skipped

Article comments

BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT has signed an agreement that will enable certifications from The Open Group to be accepted towards Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status.

Holders of The Open Group Certified Architect and Certified IT Specialist certifications at Level 2 Master and Level 3 Distinguished will not have to do the initial review and interview part of the BCS CITP process, under the new agreement with The Open Group.

"We have assessed The Open Group's Certified Architect and Certified IT Specialist certifications and we are happy that the criteria and processes established by The Open Group meet the level of experience and competence demanded for CITP," said Adam Thilthorpe, director of professionalism at BCS.

However, in order to achieve CITP status, applicants will still need to be professional members of BCS and pass the BCS breadth of knowledge test.

According to the Institute, around 6,000 IT professionals globally will benefit from the new partnership.

To gain CITP status, applicants need to have eight to 10 years' experience, with at least three of the last five years in a complex IT role requiring business insight.

Those with the relevant Open Group certifications can register their interest in achieving CITP status at www.bcs.org/citp-theopengroup.
