Why should you choose the ISEB certification route?

23 January 2012

ISEB (Information Systems Examination Board) is the examination body associated with BCS, The Chartered Institute for I.T. By this merit an ISEB qualification is an industry recognised qualification, both in the UK and overseas.

The benefits of such recognition include showing a commitment to the field, to study and to the progress of your career through official channels. The skills and knowledge an ISEB course can offer you, particularly the Foundation in Business Analysis course, can lead into numerous roles with the Information Systems industry.

A helpful diagram from BCS that charts how your career progression might benefit from ISEB qualification is shown below.

There is, however, conflicting opinion about the need for certification in this field at all as many job descriptions do not ask for ISEB qualification as a mandatory requirement in candidates. If this is the case, then why bother?

ISEB qualifications are specific to an individual but many organisations use the ISEB qualifications structure to manage skills development at the corporate level. Your level of ISEB qualification will indicate at what position you may fit into a company and also your level of skill, knowledge and most importantly experience. These factors may be the difference between a successful job application and/or promotion.

The qualifications offered by ISEB are available in various levels:

  • ISEB Foundation Level – offers a broad introduction to the field
  • ISEB Practitioner Level – a more specific discipline
  • ISEB Higher Level – In depth coverage for specialists or managers

Total Training Solutions offer many ISEB courses and modules that make up these qualifications. For a full list of ISEB courses available from Total Training Solutions please browse the course directory. To make a booking please call 0800 612 1299 or email info@tts-uk.co.uk.
