As a follow-up to that announcement on June 10, 2011 CIPS and the ICTC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to partner on the I-Advance certification process.

The I-ADVANCE© program will enable ICT employers to validate and recognize the technical, business and interpersonal competencies that complement the professional experience of their ICT employees. Also, I-ADVANCE© will aim to facilitate the design of a career ladder for advancement and succession of the ICT workforce in their respective areas of interest.

The MOU calls for both parties to work together in setting up a governing body to develop strategic direction policies and to oversee the management and implementation of the I-ADVANCE© program in Canada.
