Vendor qualifications

We decided today to develop five new Professional Development Awards (PDAs) linked to vendor qualifications. The awards are:
  1. Certificate in Computing Concepts (ComptTIA A+, Network+ and Server+)
  2. Certificate in Desktop Support (Microsoft Certified Desktop Support)
  3. Advanced Cert. in Systems Administration (MS Certified Systems Administrator)
  4. Advanced Cert. in Network Administration (CISCO Certified Network Administrator)
  5. Diploma in Systems Engineering (MS Certified Systems Engineer).

We're also planning on producing a database qualification linked to Oracle.

The qualifications will consist of units selected from the HNC/D Computer Networking and HNC/D Computing frameworks. I'm hoping to have them available to centres from August. More information from Caroline.
