Byron Nicolaides, Chairman & CEO of PEOPLECERT (www.peoplecert.org ), was invited to speak at the annual meeting of the Association of IT Training Providers (www.voi.nl), the exclusive community of professionals who represent the leading organizations within IT training and certification in The Netherlands.
Byron talked about the current trends and opportunities within the certification industry and the need for organizations to focus on both product and service innovation to meet changing demands. ‘It is all about simplicity and the ability for an organization to monitor global trends and invest on both ‘hot’ certification needs and innovative services. This is what PEOPLECERT continuously invests on. For example, we recently introduced the updated Professional Certification in Management Systems in ISO 20000 to meet today’s industry trends. At the same time, we launched a new Reporting tool, fully integrated in our web based exam administration system which enables our partners to monitor their exams real time and create exam reports at an instant, allowing them to really stay in control of their exams’.
‘The ability to continuously deliver on different levels and offer simple, quick, yet quality solutions, is what, ultimately, differentiates us for our partners. And being present in key industry events gives us a greater insight into local requirements and ensures that we continue to add value to their business’, says Byron.
