Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme - 2022

Many people working as professionals in the digital economy do not have formal qualifications in an ICT-related discipline.  The JCSE offers a coherent series of Wits University accredited short courses that are aimed at equipping the working professional with a relevant body of knowledge and a coherent set of core skills. We call this the “Continuing Professional Development“, or CPD, Programme. 

The CPD Programme is structured around two tracks: 

  • The Management Track: aimed at those who intend to develop their career as team leaders, project managers and thereafter into middle and senior management roles.
  • The Technical Track: aimed at those who see their future in senior technical roles.

Dates for 2022

  • Software Engineering Principles and Methods – 4 May 2022 to 15 June 2022.
  • Software Project Management – 29 June 2022 to 10 August 2022
  • (New) Digital Transformation Lifecycle – Starts May … 6 weeks . To be taught online via Wits Digital Platform
