Thanks to a post from the Pinoy Java Users Group (PinoyJUG), I found out the Annual ICT (EDP) Proficiency Tests for Computer Programming and Systems Analysis and Design (SAD).
The National Computer Center (NCC) is holding this due to:
the need to have qualified ICT manpower in the government to implement its Information Systems Plans. Furthermore, there is a need for qualified ICT manpower in the country to support E-governance and E-commerce efforts under RA 8792 (E-Commerce Act) and Government Information Systems Plan under EO 265 (series of 2000).
This certification exam is equivalent to level 1 Civil Service (CSC) eligibility.
Do you think this is the same as the other certifications discussed here in PinoyTechBlog, or is this for a different career? How is an IT career in government service?
