CompTIA Welcomes AMA Education System to its Academy Partner Program

QUEZON CITY, Philippines, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CompTIA, the information technology (IT) industry trade association and the leading provider of vendor-neutral skills certifications for the world's IT workforce, has welcomed AMA Education System (AMAES) to its CompTIA Authorized Academy Partner program.

According to AMAES Chairman Dr. Amable R. Aguiluz , AMAES is "proud to become an academic partner of CompTIA. It couldn't happen at a better time than now."

Dr. Aguiluz said he will integrate CompTIA training and certification courses into the AMAES curriculum as early as Senior High.

"Education for all is what I dream for all Filipinos," Dr. Aguiluz said. "Not just education, but quality education, so tie-ups like this ensure that AMAES students learn the latest and most in-demand IT programs and skills in the workplace."

With this collaboration students can graduate with both an academic degree from AMAES and internationally-recognized, vendor neutral IT skills credentials from CompTIA. CompTIA certifications will help enhance AMAES graduates' employability since most skilled jobs require technology knowledge and hands-on skills.

"We are extremely pleased and honored to partner with AMAES, because it helps CompTIA fulfill one of its primary missions – to prepare the IT workforce of today and tomorrow," said Dennis Kwok , vice president, Asia Pacific , CompTIA.

"AMAES is recognized throughout the region as an education leader in many career disciplines, including IT," Kwok continued. "Together we can prepare new generations of students to fill jobs in IT technical support, cloud computing, networking, cybersecurity, mobile technologies and other high-demand skills."

Professional certifications such as those awarded by CompTIA are increasingly important in the hiring and promotion of IT workers. Hiring managers and HR professionals believe having IT job candidates with industry certifications saves time and resources in evaluating applicants, ensures a candidate's credibility, and demonstrates that they have a baseline set of knowledge.

Once hired, certified IT professionals get up to speed more quickly, are more likely to stay with the company long term, have a higher likelihood of being promoted, and generally perform better than non-certified IT staff.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
