Again I had a chance to talk with John Voorhees the man behind the new direction of ASPE-IT. John has been working diligently to bring some new and exiting courses to ASPE-IT.
John, what are some of the new things we can look forward to in the coming months from ASPE-IT?
To start off we will be offering the new security CISSP certification through CISSP certification prep courses. Now Governments and major industries are establishing standards around security making it the next big IT job market. Compliance in securing data will result in the government pushing billions of dollars towards the security field, which will help spread it to the industrial and private fields as well. The security field is not a short-term concern, it’s the start of a new issue that every major company and government in the world will have to deal with from now on. CISSP is the highest credible certification, and proof that an individual is competent in managing a companies security needs. There is no other certification like it at the moment and it is being updated all the time. New security certifications will emerge due to its popularity, but I suspect they will be more vendor specific. I look forward to developing more skills based courses as they come into fruition.
Obviously we can not fail to mention the courses that have already been really exciting so far this year. SharePoint Project Management and Administration 2010 training courses have been in great demand, and I’m really excited for the courses we have scheduled.
Some other courses we will be offering in the coming months include Windows 7 MCITP and MCTS certifications, along with an expanded Windows 7 curriculum, which will include a variety of new courses.
