AIA offers machine vision certification

Share this on social media:

Individuals can now attain certification as a machine vision professional (basic level) through a new programme launched by the Automated Imaging Association (AIA), the global industry's trade group.

To earn 'CVP' status, individuals need to pass a test based on the basic tutorial programmes AIA offers in the fundamentals of machine vision, beginning lighting and optics, basic vision software and algorithms, and camera and image sensor technology basics.

The first round of tests will be offered during The Vision Show and Conference in Boston, 24-27 May 2010. Each of the tutorials will be offered during the conference as well.

AIA stated that individual certification is the first step towards certification of system integration companies. 'The idea for certifying integrators was brought to AIA by our member integrators who want to be able to demonstrate their experience and capabilities via certification,' said Jeffrey Burnstein, AIA's president.

'End users also agree that integrator certification has value and are looking to AIA to provide this. While all of the details of company certification aren't finalised yet, we do know that one key element will be the qualifications of individual employees at integration companies, which is why we've established base level certification right now. Soon, we will roll out more advanced level certification courses for individuals and finalise our company certification criteria,' Burnstein explained.

Individuals that work for machine vision suppliers or user companies also will benefit from becoming certified, Burnstein said.

'We believe that achieving certification will be an asset to individuals who want to establish their knowledge base within their company and industry. As the world's leading machine vision trade association, AIA certification will be a very impressive achievement for career advancement,' he asserted.
