In the seminar held in June last year, we summed up the achievements and experiences we had garnered in Computer Information Technology Testing (“CITT”) since 20 years ago. For a year, provincial occupational skill testing authorities have regarded CITT as one of their key tasks under the guidance of Occupational Skill Testing Authority under MHRSS. With join efforts of all stakeholders, remarkable improvements have been achieved in this regard: nearly 820,000 candidates took the test last year, reaching a new record high. By the end of 2016, the number of test takers had surpassed ten million.
This seminar was convened at a time when China was reforming the occupational qualifications. Under this backdrop, there have been heated discussions among participants on the previous year’s work performance and the opportunities/challenges facing the CITT, as well as how to boost development through innovations. With in-depth interactions and exchanges of views, the seminar set a clear direction for our future work, and promoted experience sharing and mutual learning among different local authorities in the work of CITT, which will play a positive role in enabling the examinations to leapfrog at the new starting point.
