ABSTRACT
Examination board OCR has launched itself into the IT professional certification market. Last month, it released four qualifications under the iPRO brand, featuring elements of Cisco Inc., Comptia and Microsoft Corp. exams with OCR-devised material. Since the four qualifications are eligible for public funding, OCR believes the exam will be a lot cheaper than rival offerings. 'It is up to the provider or college how much they charge. Some will obtain extra funding and might charge nothing,' says Steve Ladlow, OCR's senior communications co-ordinator. 'Whatever the charges, a more cost-effective rate should be charged, to both candidates and businesses, by providers offering iPRO qualifications and the subsequent tests.' The iPRO qualifications are split into two streams, software development and systems support, both of which are available at two levels.
