The next Top Gun Program has been decided to be held in February 2016.
Information-technology Promotion Agency Japan (hereinafter "IPA") will invite Top Guns to Japan for the program from the ITPEC member countries. The Top Guns will be elected two persons from each country; One person from the May exam passers and the other from the October exam passers.
The criteria for a Top Gun are the following:
1) Achieve a top-class score of FE exam or AP exam in each country.
2) Have a good command of English.
3) Have good communication skills.
4) Have a strong motivation to learn from the program.
5) Have a willingness to contribute as ITPEC Ambassador after returning to each country.
The program will be organized to nurture capable people so that they can play leading parts for ITPEC Examination promotion jointly with the examination implementing bodies and also for cooperation with Japanese companies.
In the previous ITPEC Top Gun Program in Feb 2015, a wide range of contents was included, such as project management training, workshops and discussions with Japanese IT companies, and hands-on experience of cutting edge IT services and products of Japan.
The next ITPEC Top Gun Program will have similar contents.
