PEOPLECERT co-founds Lean IT Association to set global standard for Lean IT Education and Certification

March 2015 – PEOPLECERT is proud to announce the co-founding of the Lean IT Association (LITA), a consortium of global leaders in the IT Training and Certification Industry. LITA’s mission is to establish the global standard for Lean IT education and certification, setting a new reference point for professionals across a broad spectrum of knowledge and competence skills.

LITA’s board is comprised of Senior Directors of its founding members - three global Examination Institutes (PEOPLECERT, EXIN and APMG) and three leading Training Organizations (Pink Elephant, ITPreneurs and Quint Wellington Redwood) in technical education. This joint effort is set to provide the definitive knowledge center for Lean IT and universal Lean IT certifications.

PEOPLECERT will deliver LITA’s newly developed Lean IT Certifications, through its global network of training organizations across 140 countries. The first exams will be available in March 2015 and training providers can immediately apply for accreditation. The quality of their training program, materials and trainers will be assessed against the highest quality standards applied by PEOPLECERT and LITA.

“We are proud to be part of an initiative that will evolve IT practice and the careers of IT professionals by providing them with the necessary skills for effective and efficient IT infrastructures. The Lean IT certifications will be a perfect addition to complement PEOPLECERT’s existing portfolio of internationally recognized exams”, says PEOPLECERT’s CEO, Byron Nicolaides.
