Opening up a new route for the development of ICT competences, EXIN and Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd are joining forces for the development of ICT professionals based on the e-Competence Framework (e-CF).
As the first Chinese firm to sign, Huawei will become one of EXIN’s launching partners for the e-Competence Solutions, based on the e-CF. The Shenzhen-headquartered Huawei will align its training content with the e-CF competences. Additionally, there are plans to offer Huawei clients worldwide the EXIN assessments, based on the e-CF, providing companies with an overview of the competences and proficiency levels of their IT staff.
Not just focused on testing knowledge
After signing the agreement, Robert Jan Willemsen, Chief Commercial Officer of EXIN, explained: “An e-CF qualification is not just focused on testing knowledge; it plays a vital role in the development of talents and organisations within the ICT industry. All parties will benefit from the use of the e-CF and set higher standards for its development in turn.”
He continued: “EXIN is very pleased with this new partnership. Huawei is a large international company and China is an important market for EXIN. The e-CF assessment is a new and upcoming product and I am certain that with Huawei as launching partner it will become successful in China.”
Tu Wenjie, Vice President Global Training and Certification Department Huawei, said that: “EXIN and Huawei signing the agreement is a win-win situation; our co-operation combines the EXIN e-CF qualifications with Huawei certification. We believe it will open up a new route for the ICT competence cultivation in the industry.”
