Reducing the region’s IT carbon footprint
BCS has developed certifications surrounding Green IT
With the growing importance of organisations’ needing to reduce the carbon footprint of IT, BCS, The Chartered Institute, has partnered with Pearson Vue to deliver its certificates in Data Centre Management and Green IT.
Andy Doyle, International Director at BCS, says: “There has been a significant amount of discussion and concern today in a booming economy around recruiting IT professionals with the skills who can help organisations deliver energy efficient and low carbon IT.
“The market in the Middle East for training in IT efficiency is valued highly and there is an opportunity for training providers within the region to partner with us to gain BCS accreditation and help meet this growing need.”
Doyle continues: “Carbon legislation is starting to tighten business practices, led by International treaties and national regulations, it is crucial that organisations equip themselves with the knowledge to deliver energy efficient and sustainable IT.”
Supporting expert networks through its Green IT Specialist Group and Data Centre Management Group, BCS has developed certifications for professionals to understand legislation and best practice surrounding Green IT, including the Foundation Green IT Certification and The Intermediate Certificate in EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres, both delivered through Pearson Vue.
