Information Technology Managers Academy XII

ITMA XII logoITMA XII: The State of California's Information Technology (IT) Strategic Plan acknowledges the need to develop and rebuild the State's technology workforce. In support of Goal 5- Objective 3 of the California IT Strategic Plan, the members of Information Technology Managers Academy (ITMA) XII developed a training curriculum and course catalog for IT personnel.

The project was entitled "Professional Development for Technology Personnel". To document the competencies for each IT functional area, a survey was developed validating results from a previous classification study performed in 1999 by the Department of Personnel Administration. The curriculum and catalog were developed based on a detailed analysis of the survey results for the following functional areas: Application Software Development, Customer Technical Support, Database Development and Administration, Emerging IT, Enterprise Systems Support, Information Systems Security Administration, IT Business Consultant, IT Technical Document Writer, Network/Client Server Administration and Web / Internet Development.
