MTAM member, Mobile Comply, To Unveil The Connected Vehicle Professional™ Credentialing Program In Detroit At SAE World Congress 2015

Mobile Comply, The Connected Vehicle Trade Association (CVTA), and The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International will unveil their jointly developed, vendor-neutral training and credentialing program in connected vehicle technology, The Connected Vehicle Professional™ (CVP) Credentialing Program this year at SAE World Congress. The program helps professionals build a valuable skill set and increase credibility by signifying that an individual has the requisite foundational understanding necessary to perform tasks involving connected vehicle and intelligent transportation best practices, in-vehicle safety, infrastructure, communication protocols, security and more. 

There is an unfilled need for skilled workers across the country.  Currently, more than 80,000 skilled and technical jobs are unfilled in Michigan.  Additionally, an estimated 500,000 new jobs will be created within the connected vehicle industry by 2020, with an almost sevenfold increase in the number of new vehicles equipped with factory-fitted mobile connectivity over the next five years.  To meet this demand, professionals will need the proper education, training and credentialing within the connected vehicle space. 

“With the potential for hundreds of thousands of jobs in the connected vehicle space in the next few years, and the growing participation of non-typical automotive industries such as insurance, IT, analytics and telecommunications, it has become imperative to have a common frame of understanding, and a mechanism to establish competency in this field” said Elaina Farnsworth, CEO of Mobile Comply. 

“Credentials are one important and universally recognized way to do this.  With the structured and scalable training Mobile Comply can provide, the knowledge CVTA can impart, and the adjudication of that learning independently by SAE International, we have a robust, consistent and multi-sector learning environment that is crucial for professionals entering into and working in this space,” Farnsworth added. 

The CVP™ Credentialing Program’s blended learning approach incorporates instructor led lectures, online activities, videos, and other interactive elements to provide the experienced professional with the necessary understanding of Vehicle-to-Vehicle, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure, and Vehicle-to-X connectivity inclusive to the rapidly advancing field of connected vehicles.  Those who successfully complete the end-of-course learning assessments are awarded the SAE International/CVTA Certificate of Competency. 

The series consists of three courses:

  • CVP I – Function, Protocols, and Architecture
  • CVP II – Standards, Organizations, Programs, V2X
  • CVP III – Data, Markets, Policy and Regulations 

Mobile Comply, a Michigan based, internationally recognized, mobility training firm, is staffed with industry leading subject matter experts specializing in hands-on mobility training, implementation, and development.
