Challenges Faced

Ericsson operates in an incredibly fast-paced ICT industry. To ensure their employees exceed industry standards, Ericsson Academy offers Ericsson Technical Certification Program (ETCP) but faced several challenges.

Lack of skill validation - Ericsson was unable to quantify and validate the skills of their employees. They were unable to identify the champions and give them measurable recognition.

Unavailability of niche skill assessments - Skill assessments for niche skills in the program from diverse areas of technical competence and telecom domain were unavailable.

Lack of flexible solutions - The complex certification mechanism of the program needed highly customized skill assessments to suit their certification tracks with three defined levels: Associate, Professional, and Expert.

Ericsson partnered with iMocha to deliver an employee-centric skill assessment ecosystem crafted for complex technology learning tracks, different proficiency levels and specific job-roles.

Ericsson Technical Certification Program (ETCP) was designed to encourage technical engineers and solution architects at Ericsson explore latest technologies and innovations. The Technical Certification Program initially started with people from Business Managed Application Services Unit and excel in areas like Technical Sales, Design, Configuration, Integration, Operation and Support.

To issue the certificates for those who scored a steep threshold of 80%, assessment reports were generated showing areas of strengths and areas of improvement along with proficiency level.

The certification mechanism of the program needed highly customized skill assessments to suit their certification tracks with three defined levels: Associate, Professional, and Expert.

Skill Content Consulting Services: Ericsson loved iMocha's Skill Consulting Services. The question calibration process ensured super-fast delivery of tests that are peer-reviewed and extensively quality checked by subject matter experts. This helped Ericsson achieve a high degree of customization for skill assessments with a quick turnaround time.
