TCG Hamilton selects Pearson VUE to deliver exams of leading cross-sector certification bodies in new global multi-year partnership
NEW DELHI, INDIA, April 22, 2014 — A new multi-year partnership between TCG Hamilton Group Inc. and computer-based assessment leader Pearson VUE means that professionals working in business process outsourcing (BPO), talent management, IT, hospitality and teaching across 100 countries can now conveniently, and in a highly secure manner, attain certifications from leading credentialing organisations on the TCG Hamilton worldwide network.
The new partnership spurs the outsourcing and ICT-based industries in developing countries by opening a new workforce-qualification platform.
Managed by TCG Hamilton India Limited, part of the TCG Hamilton Group Inc., the partnership means that individuals registered with TCG Hamilton can take certification exams at any of Pearson VUE’s highly secure network of over 5,000 test centres across 175 countries. Potential certification candidates outside major cities no longer have to travel long distances to take their certification examinations, and on-demand testing means complete scheduling convenience for examinees.
Under this arrangement, Pearson VUE will deliver examinations for certifications of the prestigious BPO Certification Institute (BCI) to agents, team leaders, managers, trainers and senior professionals working in the international BPO industry. Additionally, certification exams for the Talent Management Institute (TMI), the Software Qualifications Board of America (SQBA) and the Global Service Quality Institute (GSQI) will also be delivered across the world by Pearson VUE.
