Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Academies (TAG-Academy), Dubai, in cooperation with Pearson VUE, announced today the launch of its first Pearson VUE Authorised Testing Center, which will provide computer-based test delivery for ICT certification. This will be the first of a number of test centers as part of this agreement. The announcement at GITEX, which is one of Middle East's largest IT events, comes as a reflection of the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization's commitment to the region's education sector, and its ongoing efforts to assist in the development and certification of professionals in the areas of both language and technology. The initiative will help bridge the gap between the skill requirements of the area and those available in the local market.
According to the agreement signed between TAG-Academies and Pearson VUE, the vision behind the testing center is to draw on Pearson VUE's experience in education and computer-based test delivery for the benefit of the region's emerging generation of professionals. 'Through this agreement and cooperation it will be easier to create a talented pool of highly qualified technical resources which are very much in demand in this region,' said Salah Abu Osbeh, Regional Executive Director of TAG-Academies.
