After signing the agreement, Robert Jan Willemsen, Chief Commercial Officer of EXIN, explained: “An e-CF qualification is not just focused on testing knowledge; it plays a vital role in the development of talents and organizations within the ICT industry. All parties will benefit from the use of the e-CF and set higher standards for its development in turn.”
He continues: “EXIN is very pleased with this new partnership. Huawei is a large international company and China is an important market for EXIN. The e-CF assessment is a new and upcoming product and I am certain that with Huawei as launching partner it will become successful in China.”

We believe it will open up a new route for the ICT competence cultivation in the industry.”
