New Accreditation Enables Software Engineers to Officially Qualify in ARM MCU technology
What: ARM has launched a new accreditation as part of its ARM Accredited Engineer (AAE) program. The new " ARM Accredited MCU Engineer " (AAME) accreditation will focus on software aspects of ARMv6 and ARMv7 Cortex-M architecture profiles and is aimed primarily at embedded Microcontroller Unit software engineers who are familiar with the ARM Cortex-M processor series and want to demonstrate their knowledge of ARM MCU technology.
Why: The AAE program is the only global exam-based accreditation program that offers engineers, trainers, consultants and students the opportunity to gain credible evidence of their knowledge of ARM technology. It offers individuals a way to validate their skills and differentiate themselves and gives employers a reliable benchmark that helps in recruiting new staff and developing existing staff.
The new AAME accreditation complements the existing AAE accreditation (focused on Cortex-A and Cortex-R technology) to offer a professional qualification to the growing community of embedded software engineers using ARM Cortex-M based MCU devices in their products.
At a time when the rapid growth of the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is driving ever wider adoption of Cortex-M based devices for their impressive combination of performance, cost, power, size and ease of use, the need for good quality engineers is imperative.
Companies that place a strong emphasis on quality (especially those with ISO Certifications) may also wish to use the AAME accreditation as part of their formal learning and development process for engineers working on ARM MCU technology.
When: This new AAME accreditation is officially launched on
The ARM University Program is also working with universities around the world to support learning on ARM Cortex-M based MCU devices. Please see www.arm.com/university to find out more. Where: The AAE program is a global program administered by ARM's delivery partner, Prometric, who operate a network of 10,000 test centers in over 160 countries around the world. Candidates will be able to attend any of Prometric's Authorized Testing Centers in order to take their tests.Exam registration/scheduling for this accreditation will go live on the Prometric website (www.prometric.com/arm) on the launch date, so candidates will be able to start scheduling their tests immediately.
