British Computer Society launches mainframe qualification

The British Computer Society ( BCS ) has developed a new qualification for mainframe technicians.

The Mainframe Technology Professional qualification ( BCS MTP ), which has been developed in conjunction with RSM Technology, offers three levels of certification; Assistant, Engineer and Consultant.

The BCS says that contrary to predictions that the mainframe would be obsolete by the 21st century, it is proving to be as relevant and critical to industry today as it has always been.

Pete Bayley, BCS director of qualifications said: "We've introduced the BCS MTP qualification in direct response to demand from industry. More and more organisations want appropriately qualified employees to give them a competitive edge as well as offer reassurance to customers and clients that mainframes are being maintained by top quality professionals. This is particularly important when downtime of a mainframe can literally mean the loss of millions of pounds of business."
