ITEE was first administered in 1969. ITEE is becoming one of the largest-scale national examinations in Japan, and to date more than 15.4 million people have taken this examination and approximately 1.78 million have passed.
The objectives of ITEE are…
1) To create goals for IT engineers and provide motivation to improve individual technical competence;
2) To set clear skill criteria for IT engineers, thereby contributing to the establishment of educational standards in school education, vocational education and corporate in-house education; and
3) To establish objective criteria for companies and government agencies to evaluate IT engineers’ skills and competence upon employment, with the aim of raising the social status of qualified engineers. ITEE is widely used and highly valued by businesses and schools as a way to ascertain and improve one’s skill levels.
A total of 12 examination categories, ranging from entry-level tests to examinations covering comprehensive technologies, have been established. Passing the examination allows for the objective certification of IT knowledge.
