GlobalPlatform Delivers Training to Align with Cartes in Asia 2010

11 January 2010 – GlobalPlatform has announced that it will hold a one-day card specification training session at The Langham Hotel, Hong Kong on Tuesday 16 March 2010, to educate delegates on the benefits of adopting open and interoperable specifications for mobile UICC implementations.  The session will coincide with Cartes in Asia (16-18 March 2010, Hong Kong) to accommodate delegates that are attending this new regional industry gathering.

Delivered by an experienced GlobalPlatform instructor in English, the training is designed to improve knowledge of GlobalPlatform's technology, its function and capabilities, and the benefits gained from implementing a standardized smart card infrastructure.  The session will outline GlobalPlatform's suite of card specifications as well as its UICC Configuration - a technical guide which outlines a common and neutral environment to facilitate the secure delivery over-the-air of new and creative mobile services to consumers.  It will also reveal GlobalPlatform's forthcoming technical releases.

Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform, comments: "Since launching its open card training sessions last year, GlobalPlatform has received an overwhelming response from the industry which underlines the demand for this specialist training.  GlobalPlatform invests considerable resources in the ongoing development of its educational program, and in light of the positive feedback received, plans to continue to hold training sessions at key locations across the globe during 2010 and beyond."

The cost of the training session is US $995 for GlobalPlatform members and US $1,295 for APSCA members and EMVCo subscribers.  The cost for all other attendees is US $1,495.  Only a limited number of seats are available to ensure a dynamic learning environment.  To view the full agenda or to register your attendance, please visit:
