Pearson VUE to deliver Turkish CompTIA A+® Exams
Istanbul, Turkey, March 10, 2010 — Computer-based assessment company Pearson VUE has announced that it is one of two testing providers selected to deliver CompTIA’s newly-launched Turkish language CompTIA A+® exam.
This means that CompTIA, which is already a long-standing client of Pearson VUE internationally, will be able to offer the globally recognised CompTIA A+ qualification through Pearson VUE’s network of test centres in major towns and cities across Turkey.
CompTIA A+ is a professional IT qualification held by over 700,000 people worldwide, and is accepted by employers all over the world as a standard of IT competence. CompTIA A+ is also often taken as an entrance to more specific and advanced professional IT licensure, such as Cisco’s CCNA. Its launch in the Turkish language is anticipated to create high demand across the country.
Paul Howarth, Managing Director, Pearson VUE EMEA, said: “CompTIA A+ is the most sought-after qualification from CompTIA and Turkey is a rapidly-growing knowledge economy in terms of skills in technology, so we are sure that this newly-launched test will prove extremely popular throughout our network.”
