GlobalPlatform launches smart card training course

03 November 2008  |  1629 views  |  0 Source: GlobalPlatform

GlobalPlatform, the international smart card specifications association, has launched a new, client-customized card technology training offering.

The course has been designed to improve industry knowledge of the smart card specifications available, their function and capabilities, and the benefits gained from implementing standardized technology. This is the first time that GlobalPlatform has leveraged its technical expertise on interoperability standards into a tailored, client-focused training program.

The standard two day GlobalPlatform Card Specification Training Class comprehensively covers GlobalPlatform's role within the industry and its suite of specifications, in addition to a thorough training on 'core' card specifications. The content is then uniquely tailored to concentrate on the specific elements of GlobalPlatform card technology, and how it can be implemented, relevant to the audience and the specific markets in which it operates. The program can also incorporate GlobalPlatform's forthcoming technical releases, including the Universal Integrated Circuit Card configuration which was released last week.

Training will be led by experienced instructors from GlobalPlatform member organizations, who have been carefully selected after demonstrating a detailed understanding of GlobalPlatform technology and its real-world application.

Marc Kekicheff, Vice Chair of GlobalPlatform and Senior Business Leader of Product Technology at Visa Inc., comments: "As marketplaces converge to deliver innovative services to end-users and business models become increasingly complex, the industry is eager to learn exactly what GlobalPlatform offers, how this translates into a common and neutral smart card infrastructure, and the specific benefits that can be achieved by implementing the technology. Drawing on our cross sector membership that includes leading global players in smart card development and implementation, GlobalPlatform is well positioned to conduct independent, tailored training on card specification technology to a wide variety of marketplaces."

The GlobalPlatform tform Card Specification Training Class can be delivered in any location globally. It is fully customized to ensure that the program uniquely meets an organization's business needs and is directly applicable to its products and solutions. Depending on content, the training may be delivered over one, two or three days. GlobalPlatform members are entitled to a significant discount.
