The British Computer Society has rolled out its first information technology-related foundation certificate in project management, in response to the growing number of information technology professionals (IT) looking to enter the field. The certificate is targeted at anyone involved in IT projects or new to project management and looking to get a grounding in the subject. There are no prerequisites for taking the certificate, although a basic working knowledge of IT is essential and it is recommended that candidates attend a suitable training course with an accredited training provider to prepare for the exam.
