IEEE launched the Certified Biometric Professional (CBP) program in 2009. In July 2012 it launched version 2.0 of the training program that is used by candidates preparing for the 150-question multiple choice exam. Version 2.0 includes updates to sections including compliance and standards, methods and applications, system design and implementation as well as new descriptions and case studies.
IEEE now has certified professionals on six continents and the numbers continue to grow, says Kelley Johnson, IEEE CBP program.
The next test window is Nov. 17-Dec. 31.
