Zope Corporation is pleased to announce two substantial initiatives to enhance Zope's market penetration and create additional opportunity for all companies participating in the Zope marketplace:

  • National/International Zope training
  • Zope Certification Program

Zope Corporation and its partners will conduct training courses and seminars throughout the world in 2002. We will ensure that Zope training and materials are available througout the world and in as many languages as possible.

The training effort will be extended with the development of a Zope Certification Program (ZCP). While certifications are no substitute for experience, they are the most standardized measure of expertise in the information management field. The ZCP will provide a tested measure of competence. Organizations from the Fortune 500 to small businesses will be able to rely on this standard as a measure of expertise.
