The IEEE and some of the world’s biometrics experts have developed a new certification and training program for biometrics professionals and their organizations. The IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional (CBP) program focuses on the relevant knowledge and skills to apply biometrics to real-world challenges and applications.
The IEEE certification program was developed to help meet the training, hiring and evaluation needs of professionals and organizations throughout the field of biometrics. Individuals who will benefit include biometrics professionals, practitioners, and engineers from a wide array of industries.
The program consists of two components: certification, through the IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional (CBP) Exam; and training, through the IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional (CBP) Learning System.
By passing the IEEE CBP exam and earning the CBP designation, biometrics professionals demonstrate that they have the level of proficiency needed to perform in a competent and effective manner, and meet the demands of this rapidly evolving field. The IEEE CBP Learning System combines print materials and online interactive software to provide effective biometrics training and CBP exam preparation.
In 2009, the CBP exam will be available from October 26 – November 22, and registration is open. Professionals who want to register for the exam and organizations that are interested in registering multiple employees should visit http://www.IEEEBiometricsCertification.org for more information.
