The Center Partnership
International affiliations and international participation are essential for any country, business and, indeed, individual who wish to be a player on the world digital stage. Reinventing the wheel is an approach which condemns those who do so to always lag behind. Never more so has this been the case than with the digital revolution. It is unacceptable to continually lag behind, and the only way we can overcome this quickly is through partnerships/associations with those who are at the leading edge of the technological revolution. Not only must we accelerate technology transfer but also our voice must be heard by those who lay down the rules under which the electronic game is played. To serve this objective, Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Cambridge Information Technology Training Center (TAG Cambridge IT) was established as a result of an agreement that was signed on June 18, 2001 between Talal Abu-Ghazaleh & Co. International (TAGI), and Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) to deliver IT training courses through an Internet website, as well as additional learning resources. The aim is to prepare prospective candidates for the International Diploma in IT Skills tests. Individuals who successfully complete this course are awarded the International Diploma in IT Skills.
The Center’s objective and studentship: The aim of the Diploma is to assess and certify a candidate’s ability to use Information Technology effectively when using specific software applications. Within each application area, candidates are required to enter and manipulate data, work closely to given specifications and successfully complete a range of tasks as specified. During the assessments, they are required to edit, copy, save and/or print the data on which they are working, as appropriate.
