British Computer Society offers Green IT course

Training covers regulations, legislation & policies

The British Computer Society (BCS) has announced a new green IT qualification.

Set up in conjunction with QA, a professional provider of training programmes and learning solutions, The Foundation Certificate in Green IT qualification is designed to provide candidates with the necessary understanding of best practice in the burgeoning area of green IT.

The qualification will provide an understanding of the regulations, legislation and policies, carbon energy accounting and how to create a green IT strategy. Other areas covered include business benefit, end-to-end costing, emissions and energy efficiencies, procurement, lifecycle, and disposal planning, managing stakeholder relationships and behaviours.

By the end of the three-day course, candidates will have a fundamental understanding of the importance of IT when trying to achieve an organisation's green objective insists the BCS. The qualification will launch with a three-month pilot period in the UK, before becoming widely available internationally.
