The Irish Computer Society are delighted to announce that we have been nominated for a Tech Excellence Award in the Professional Development category. This is a tremendous honour for the society and we are grateful that our efforts to upskill the IT profession through initiatives like the e-CF and CPD are being recognised by the wider IT community.
Our Deputy CEO, Tom O'Sullivan, commented briefly on the nomination:
"We are delighted that we have been shortlisted for a Tech Excellence Award, particularly in a category like Professional Development. Developing the IT profession is a mission we have taken on since this company was founded 50 years ago, and there is still a long way to go. Initiatives like Continuous Professional Development and the e-Competence Framework are paving the way for a competency-based IT profession, with its own distinct identity. We are grateful that our efforts are being recognised by the wider IT community."
The Awards Night is being held on May 18th in the Citywest Hotel, Dublin. We're all very excited to be attending, and we're hoping to bring home the award.
