CompTIA will create a certification program for technicians at seven printing and document imaging organizations.
The Computing Technology Industry Association announced Feb. 21 that it plans to develop a new certification of IT skills that focuses on the printing and document imaging industry.
The seven companies that plan to support this certification program are Xerox, Specialized Solutions, Canon U.S.A., Konica Minolta Business Solutions, Lexmark International, Pitney Bowes and Sharp Electronics.
"A uniform standard of performance for printing and document imaging technicians results in greater productivity; higher first time fix-rates; and better results for the customer," said Richard Rysiewicz, vice president of services at CompTIA, in a company release.
The new certification program plans to concentrate on skills related to printers, multifunctional printers, scanners, faxes, copiers, networking, connectivity and color theory, as prime candidates are expected to be entry- to mid-level technicians with six to 12 months of experience in the installation, connectivity, maintenance and repair, and support of devices in the printing and document industry.
