Find me on:

Last night Radtac was proud to be a part of the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, launch of new Agile Certifications at both Foundation and Practitioner level. The certification programme has been developed specifically working with the industry to meet the demands of those utilising Agile. Radtac has developed the Foundation course on behalf of the BCS.

Jose Casal, Director of Radtac Training, says “The Foundation Certificate is aimed squarely at giving organisation wide understanding of Agile methods. As Agile becomes a tool to effectively change organisations there was a clear need for a course that brought rigour to the understanding of the whole subject rather than individual methods alone. Radtac Training is delighted to be working with the BCS and, having taken many people through the pilot courses, we have now made the course a formal part of our training offering. It is available as a public course and for in-house client delivery.” BCS Agile Foundation Certificate

Adam Thilthorpe, Director for Professionalism, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says: “The introduction of the Agile Certification is a great addition to our already extensive portfolio. Agile has become an integral part of the way we do business and has made the transition from next practice to good practice." He added “As an organisation, we are continuously exploring the new trends and business models that drive digital advantage. Partnering with Radtac has been a great opportunity to utilise their expertise and ensure we are delivering a rigorous Foundation Certificate that exceeds the high expectations of our potential candidates. We have already had excellent feedback from those who participated in the pilot scheme. With IT professionals at the heart of business there is a growing demand for independent certification of their knowledge and capabilities. Our new certifications will enable Agile specialists and those using Agile in their everyday roles to achieve the grade of certification required for the areas they work in.”

The certification programme is designed to effectively embed agile practices within an organisation. It provides a wide curriculum and offers the knowledge, tools and capability for people to better manage change, and deliver products and services. With the introduction of both Foundation and Practitioner level, the scheme enables all those working with Agile to become certified and means organisations can ensure an Agile approach is adopted across multi-discipline projects.

Peter Measey Chief Executive Office, Radtac, says: “Following the success of the Agile pilot scheme, it is fantastic to be launching the full Agile Certifications programme. Working with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, we have utilised our 15 years’ worth of experience to contribute to these Agile certifications. These new certifications are a key enabler, as businesses seek change.”
