Promwad team becomes one of the first ARM Accredited Engineers in the CIS

Promwad’s team of programming engineers has successfully passed an exam for the ARM Accredited Engineer (AAE) certification program. Today it is the only certification program available in the system of evaluating engineers who work with processors based on ARM architecture.

ARM Holdings, based in Britain, launched its certification program in 2012, selecting twelve different fields to evaluate engineers from beginner to expert level, some of which will be available for the exam this year.

AAE is an entry level certificate which covers the software aspects of ARMv7 architecture and focuses on the processors Cortex-A and Cortex-R (additionally it covers general subjects such as programming tools). The AAE certification program is designed for developers of embedded systems and embedded software, which have extensive knowledge in ARM technology and make use of real-time and application processors in their projects.

]]>The entry-level exam syllabus]]> for ARM Accredited Engineer certification includes the following sections:

  • Architectural (30%)
  • Software Development (30%)
  • Software Optimization (15%)
  • System (10%)
  • Software Debug (8%)
  • Implementation (7%)

The certification exam is carried out by Prometric, a well-known American company which evaluates the knowledge of experts on the criteria of educational systems by a number of global technology vendors such as Apple, Microsoft, IBM and other companies. Promwad experts are ready to prove their knowledge of ARM architecture at Advanced and Specialist levels as soon as these exams are available in certification centers.

ARM Accredited Engineer certification is not a requirement for working on projects using ARM, but this certificate is an added advantage and demonstrates the high qualifications of Promwad engineers, which helps deal with customers’ tasks using top world-class solutions: computing architecture big.LITTLE, multi-core ARMv7 and Cortex-A9 processors, etc.
