Registration Opens for Next Testing Phase of IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional Program

18 October 2012 – IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization, today announced that enrollment for the next testing phase of its Certified Biometrics Professional™ (CBP) program is now open. The testing window runs from 17 November to 31 December 2012.

The IEEE CBP Learning System has been updated to reflect current best practices of the biometrics industry. Version 2.0 highlights new biometric methods and applications, the latest biometric standards, and recent developments in system design and implementation. The learning system also includes new case studies and examples and combines print materials and online interactive software including 600 online test questions to help individuals prepare for the IEEE CBP certification exam.

By passing the three-hour, 150-question exam and earning the CBP credential, biometrics professionals, practitioners, and engineers can differentiate themselves in this rapidly evolving field.

IEEE and some of the world’s leading biometrics experts developed the program to help meet training, hiring, and evaluation needs of professionals and organizations throughout the biometrics industry. The IEEE CBP program focuses on the relevant knowledge and skills necessary to apply biometrics to real-world challenges and applications.
