IEEE, a technical professional association, announced that enrollment for the next testing phase of its Certified Biometrics Professional program is now open. Testing windows for 2010 are scheduled for April 24 to May 31 and November 20 to December 31, with corresponding registration periods open from Jan. 11 to May 26 and from Aug. 9 to Dec. 28, respectively.
IEEE and some of the world’s biometrics experts developed the program to help meet training, hiring and evaluation needs of professionals and organizations throughout the biometrics industry. The IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional program focuses on the relevant knowledge and skills necessary to apply biometrics to real-world challenges and applications.
Individuals who will benefit from the IEEE CBP program include biometrics professionals, practitioners and engineers from a wide array of industries. The program consists of two components: certification through the IEEE CBP Exam, and training through the IEEE CBP Learning System.
By passing the 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.
