First foreign student to pass the difficult SAP certification consulting exam

Two international students from KCGI passed the difficult "SAP Certified Consultant" exam.This is the first time that a foreign student studying in Japan has passed this exam.SAP is the world's largest producer of ERP packages*1, and the certification exam enables you to become a consultant for companies implementing ERP systems*2.The accomplishment of these two students, who overcame language barriers and other obstacles to pass the exam, which is considered difficult even for Japanese working adults, is an encouragement not only to other international students but also to the students.

The successful applicants are Mr. Kuang Tai Bai (28 years old, from Taipei, Taiwan, graduated from Chinese Culture University, completed KCGI in March 2008, currently working for IT Service Team of SANYO Electric Co.Both of them passed the exam in February this year, and Mr. Bai was a student at KCGI.

The two students, who entered KCGI to study the most advanced and practical IT and management fields in Japan, encountered ERP systems, which are very effective in corporate management, and studied hard to obtain qualifications related to the SAP ERP system, which is used by major companies around the world.Although they had a lot of difficulties such as the fact that the exam questions were given in Japanese, they achieved their goal with the help of KCGI faculty.

Ms. Bai has already found a job where she can use her qualifications, and Mr. Chen has received a job offer from the same company.All of them expressed their aspirations, saying, "In the future, I want to gain experience and make the most of my skills to play an active role on the world stage.

KCGI has fully implemented SAP's ERP system "R/3" for education and training.There is no other example of its introduction to educational institutions.Normally, it is necessary to go through a five-week training course held by SAP to obtain this certification, and many working people in Japan try to obtain this certification.KCGI has the same level of lectures as this course, and you can learn it carefully over a year.

In addition to these two students, four other Japanese students passed the SAP Certified Consultant Examination in 2007.
