(IBMResearchBlog) IBM Quantum is excited to announce the world’s first ever developer certification for programming a quantum computer.
One market research report predicted that quantum computing will be a $65 billion industry by 2030, resulting in an influx of new quantum jobs, as well. With tne IBM Quantum Developer Certification, IBM Quantum is offering a path for people with all development backgrounds to earn a certification in programming with Qiskit, allowing them to leverage their quantum coding skills into a potential opportunity in this exciting new workforce.
The IBM Quantum Developer Certification is a 60-question certification exam offered on the Pearson VUE platform. Those who pass the exam will have demonstrated experience using Qiskit to create and execute quantum computing programs on IBM quantum computers and simulators, and the ability to perform these tasks with little to no assistance from product documentation, support, or peers. The exam is available globally and is in English.
As part of this mission, IBM understands that cost can serve as an impediment to those hoping to receive credentials; please stay tuned as IBM plans to roll out scholarships to developers interested in the certification.
