London, UK, January 2, 2014 – OpenERP, the leading open source business applications provider, is partnering with Pearson VUE to deliver new certifications for its global partner and community networks.
A 2012 Deloitte Technology Fast50 winner and awarded most promising Belgian company by Ernst & Young in 2013, OpenERP is now the most widely used open source solution of its kind. Its new on-demand certifications have been developed in consultation with its 200,000 strong user network, many of which have sought the opportunity to formalise their skills and expertise in both developing and using the application platform.
Fabien Pinckaers, CEO of OpenERP, said: “These certifications will provide validation of knowledge and competency for both operational users and developers, which have real value to our users but also increasingly to employers across many different sectors.
“To successfully launch a certification, we need a reliable partner who can offer the widest test centre choice for candidates, particularly in Europe. Pearson VUE has the best reputation for helping their clients grow their certification business over time, particularly in the IT certification space.”
Bob Whelan, President and CEO of Pearson VUE, said: “We’re looking forward to helping OpenERP establish and grow the number of certified professionals and so further enhance the reputation of their software solution.”
OpenERP’s certifications will be optional for users and mandatory for its 500 plus partners, a number which is growing significantly each year.
