AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2022/ EINPresswire.com / -- Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet and Iasa Global announced today a strategic partnership to deliver business technology architecture skills and certification programs to Irish businesses.
This initiative builds on long-standing partnerships with Iasa Ireland chapter members and the Irish Computer Society, as well as the Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet MSc in Software Solutions Architecture, which is developed and delivered by Technological University Dublin with accreditation from Iasa Global.
This strategic partnership begins later this month and will initially focus on two initiatives:
• Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet will fund part of the per person cost of attending the upcoming Iasa CITA-Foundation ( https://www.ictskillnet.ie/training/iasa-foundation-course/ ) level course being held in Dublin during the week of October 3.
• Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet will fund part of the cost of client specific Iasa CITA-Foundation courses scheduled before the end of 2022 for private or commercial semi state organisations registered in the Republic of Ireland. These classes will be delivered onsite with clients and require minimum attendee numbers.
Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet and Iasa Global plan to expand this partnership through 2023 and beyond to incorporate community activities, events, and additional programs to broaden the skills of the business technology architecture community. Additional programs will include the CITA-Foundation and CITA-Associate architect career pathway courses, short courses on Architect skills for Business People, Introduction to Architect Skills for Developers, Value of Architecture for C-Suite and CITA-Professional/Distinguished architect board certification programs.
