The Philippine National IT Standards Foundation was previously known as the JITSE Phil Foundation Inc. which is a non-stock, non-profit, non-government organization implementing a certification program from Japan.
The Department of Trade and Industry and Japan proposed the implementation of the certification program to the Information Technology professionals to measure their IT skills and provide opportunities and additional credential in applying for jobs abroad.
Hence, the faculty of CCICT took the initiative to make them competitive in information technology not only in the Philippine context but also in Asia.-Rowanne Marie Mangompit/UICPA
