PeopleCert acquires QAI Certifications

This acquisition underlines PeopleCert commitment to continue enhancing people’s lives through globally recognised certifications.


PeopleCert has completed the acquisition of Quality Assurance Institute (QAI) certifications in Business Analysis, Software Testing and Software Quality. This comes shortly after the successful acquisition of Axelos in 2021, through which the company became the first “unicorn” company of Greek origin.

The globally recognised QAI certifications complements PeopleCert’s portfolio in IT & Digital Transformation, Project Management, Business and Languages and expands its Software Development product suite. This acquisition further solidifies PeopleCert’s position as a global IP-house of frameworks and certifications and its commitment to enhancing people’s lives through globally recognised best practice solutions.

“The acquisition of QAI certifications further strengthens our product portfolio, our share in the professional skills certification market and our commitment to offering world-class certifications to our community” said Byron Nicolaides, Founder, Chairman & CEO, PeopleCert.

Founded in 1980, the Quality Assurance Institute (QAI) is a US-based global training and consulting organisation. Over the last 40 years, QAI has been a pioneer and thought leader in the Software Quality, Software Testing and Business Analysis certification space and is recognised globally as the preeminent provider of products and services in this sector of the IT industry.

“We have been a PeopleCert partner for a decade. PeopleCert is the global leader in the certification of persons and the best custodian and natural home of the QAI certifications” said Navyug Mohnot.
