IFIP IP3 Accredits First Non-English ICT Certification
Information Processing Society of Japan’s CITP Scheme Now Recognised Internationally
Thursday 15 March 2018: IFIP, the global federation of ICT professional associations, has recognised the first non-English ICT Certification with the accreditation of the Information Processing Society of Japan’s (IPSJ) Certified Information Engineer (CITP) System.

IFIP’s International Professional Practice Partnership (IP3) announced the accreditation this week, affording international recognition to Japanese professionals holding the CITP designation.
Under IP3’s Accreditation Program, national ICT societies that have qualified for the program offer reciprocal recognition to professionals from other accredited societies, improving international mobility for ICT professionals.
IP3 Chair Moira de Roche said the mutual accreditation framework was established to provide a global standard for ICT professionals, to which professional bodies from around the world can map their local designations.
“With the addition of the Japanese CITP Scheme – our first accreditation of a non-English speaking certification – the IP3 program has become truly global,” she said.
