Presentation of the CEPRAL service
COIIPA and CITIPA, in Spanish Colegios Oficiales de Ingenieros e Ingenieros Técnicos en Informática del Principado de Asturias provide the CEPRAL service in order to allow interested people to certify their work experience in computer engineering activities. The main goal of these certifications is to facilitate access to better jobs and academic recognitions by demonstrating one's work experience.
The service is primarily aimed at professionals with an academic background who have gone on to work in their field of study afterwards. Nevertheless, the service is also open to people who have work experience in computer engineering but do not have an academic background.
The main reason for offering this service to people without a degree in computer engineering is to allow them to certify their work experience, which is a good opportunity for people who hold a vocational training certificate and other professionals who plan to pursue university degrees which prepare for these professions. This certification will allow them to obtain academic recognitions.
The other reasons for offering this service to people without a university degree are the relatively new nature of this engineering discipline and the high demand for these professionals over the last decades. These factors contributed to the fact that many people started working in this field without having the desirable academic background, common in other disciplines. The evaluations of the CEPRAL service are designed to ensure that the professionals with a university degree obtain higher grades than people without a degree.
In pursuit of their mission to structure computer engineering professions, COIIPA and CITIPA hope that these certifications will bring professional or academical benefits to the computer engineers who have sufficient demonstrable work experience.
