BCS introduces infrastructure and application management courses

The British Computer Society has introduced IT practitioner certificates in application management essentials and IT infrastructure management.

The British Computer Society has introduced IT practitioner certificates in application management essentials and IT infrastructure management.

The qualifications are based on the best practice guidelines recommended by the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), to which the BCS adheres.

They are aimed at IT professionals responsible for ensuring their organisations' IT services support the requirements of the business, said the BCS.

There are no formal entry requirements for the application management essentials certificate, which consists of a three-day course, followed by a one-hour exam.

However, candidates should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the application management lifecycle and how IT projects and strategies need to be aligned with those of the business.

Those taking the IT infrastructure management certificate need to demonstrate knowledge and practical application of the processes required to manage IT infrastructure.

However, there are no formal entry requirements for the five-day course, which has a three-hour written exam. It is suitable for people with one or two years' experience.

Colin Rudd, chairman of the BCS Information Systems Examinations Board, said, "Successful management of IT infrastructure and applications is fundamental to the delivery of secure, reliable IT services, and to the successful implementation of IT projects."
