Registration Opens for Next Testing Phase of IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional Program
Date:1/13/2010

PISCATAWAY, N.J., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- IEEE, the world's largest technical professional association, today announced that enrollment for the next testing phase of its Certified Biometrics Professional™ (CBP) program is now open. Testing windows for 2010 are scheduled for April 24 to May 31 and November 20 to December 31, with corresponding registration periods open from January 11 to May 26 and from August 9 to December 28, respectively.

IEEE and some of the world's leading biometrics experts developed the new program to help meet training, hiring and evaluation needs of professionals and organizations throughout the biometrics industry. The IEEE CBP program focuses on the relevant knowledge and skills necessary to apply biometrics to real-world challenges and applications.

"We strongly encourage the biometrics community to get involved in the next test group of this important program," said Matthew S. Loeb, staff executive, IEEE. "The IEEE CBP program provides the industry with an unbiased measure of the baseline level of knowledge held by an individual, and is a by-product of the evolving field of biometrics and the growth this industry has seen over the last 10 to 15 years."

The IEEE CBP program was recently named #2 on its list of top 10 biometrics stories of 2009 by Third Factor, a leading publication offering news and insight into biometric identification and authentication technologies.

Individuals who will benefit from the IEEE CBP program include biometrics professionals, practitioners and engineers from a wide array of industries. The program consists of two components: certification through the IEEE CBP Exam, and training through the IEEE CBP Learning System. 

"This program is of vital importance to the biometrics community," said Vincenzo Piuri, chair, IEEE CBP Certification Committee and professor, Department of Information Technology, University of Milan. "The IEEE CBP program helps organizations meet the increasing demand for skilled professionals who can successfully implement biometrics in a wide range of applications."

By passing the exam and earning the CBP designation, biometrics professionals demonstrate that they have the level of proficiency needed to perform in a competent and effective manner, and meet the demands of this rapidly evolving field. The IEEE CBP Learning System combines print materials and online interactive software to provide effective biometrics training and CBP exam preparation.

Professionals who want to register for the exam and organizations that are interested in registering multiple employees should visit www.IEEEBiometricsCertification.org.
