Tracks Hitachi Certification Professional (HCP) - Storage Foundation requirement Credential validity and recertification rules 2-tier assessment system combined with 4 levels of credentials
The new Hitachi Data Systems Certified Professional program features a 2-tier assessment structure in which low-stakes and high-stakes testing is used in combination with 4 credential levels. This gives IT professionals the most appropriate assessment method for their role and provides them with an upgrade path to accompany career growth, allowing candidates to validate their evolving expertise through exams of increased complexity.

1. Qualification-level testing
This level of testing leverages low-stakes exams typically used in 2 contexts:
Validation of broad and general expertise on subjects that evolve rapidly and for which a flexible assessment mechanism with short development cycles is needed.
Validation of basic and fundamental technical knowledge acquired academically, usually through course attendance, and for which entry-level testing is appropriate.
Typical Hitachi Data Systems qualification tests include 25 to 35 multiple-choice questions, may or may not be proctored and can be delivered as closed-book or open-book, either as end-of-course tests or in a stand-alone format.

Passing a qualification test leads to a Qualification credential. Two levels are available:
Associate: a recognition of expertise acquired in an academic format for a given subject area. This entry-level credential validates introductory-level technical knowledge.
Professional: a validation of general and foundational knowledge for a given subject area and aligned to a specific job role. Qualified professionals can perform general level work in selected subject areas.
2. Certification-level testing
Certification-level exams are designed to effectively and accurately validate that candidates have the skills, knowledge and abilities to perform tasks specifically identified as relating to their job in real-life situations. In order to pass certification exams, candidates are expected to use knowledge acquired through multiple means and experiences including various formal and informal training and learning methods.

Hitachi Data Systems certification exams typically include 55 to 60 multiple-choice questions. They are closed-book proctored exams delivered at Prometric test centers.

Passing a certification test leads to a Certification credential. Two levels are available:

Specialist: a validation that the candidate has the required technical knowledge, skills and abilities to perform advanced tasks in given subject areas. Certified certified have multilayer technical skills, can handle complex solutions and are usually specialized in 1 or more areas.
Expert: a recognition of very high levels of technical knowledge, skills and abilities in several areas. Certified experts combine their solid experience in the IT industry with strong expertise and business acumen to deliver high-value services in complex environments.

Killexams : Hitachi Professional test plan - BingNews Search results Killexams : Hitachi Professional test plan - BingNews Killexams : Weekend Essay: I sat a professional exam

Last Spring, I had a chat with a journalist from one of our competitors who had been/is taking adviser qualifications.

I found her efforts admirable and this conversation really gave me food for thought.

In the next few months, I mulled over the idea of preparing for a professional certification myself and shopped around, because there are plenty of professional bodies and exams out there.

I wanted something that would interest me but also be useful at the same time. Therefore, it would have to be a certification in investment.

I first considered the CFA Level 1 as it was the investment qualification I had heard the most about.

However, the fees ($900 to $1,200) and the low pass rate (37%) had the effect of a repellent on me. I thought it was not reasonable to spend that much money for something that would in all likelihood end up being a complete disaster.

You may call me pessimistic, I will answer that I am just not self-delusional. If even financial professionals find it hard, my chances were close to none and the technical level is probably way above what a financial journalist needs.

I had a look at the other programmes listed on the CFA’s website and came across the Investment Management Certificate (IMC).

After further research, I had made my decision. This was the right certification for me in many regards.

It aims to provide the foundations in investment management and acquiring the baseline knowledge. It is all I need for now.

Also, while the CFA is not related at all to financial advice (from what I know), the IMC does look into this profession, albeit superficially (it is primarily aimed at investment managers rather than financial advisers). As a result, it still had some relevance to my job.

Last but not least, the IMC is relatively UK-focused in comparison to the CFA which is global in its nature. As I am not a complete stranger to the UK financial industry, that would play in my favour.

I have not completely abandoned the idea of sitting the CFA Level 1 one day. Life is still long (hopefully) and the IMC will enable me to test the water. If I cannot complete it, then the CFA Level 1 is completely out of reach.

As soon as I moved house to a more comfortable and quiet place, there was no excuse and I had to walk the talk.

At the time of writing, I have just passed the first unit ‘The Investment Environment’.

I will not deny it, it is a great relief, but I am only halfway there. I will need to successfully pass unit 2 ‘The Investment Practice’ to complete the certification.

In short, it is half time, I am leading 1-0, but there are 45 further minutes to play.

What was on the menu?

For those who are not familiar with the IMC, the first unit is structured in six chapters: 1- Financial markets and institutions, 2- Ethics and investment professionalism, 3- The regulation of financial markets and institutions, 4- Legal concepts, 5- Client advice, 6- Taxation in the UK.

‘The regulation of financial markets and institutions’ is arguably the most important chapter and is also by a far and wide the longest one. Of the 85 questions at the exam, between 25 to 35 will be allocated to this chapter.

Luckily, it was no terra incognita for me as it extensively deals with the role, status and powers of a very familiar organisation: The Financial Conduct Authority.

While working at Money Marketing certainly facilitated the study of this chapter, I still had to digest extensive extracts from the FCA Handbook.

The chapter also covers, albeit in a much more concise manner, the rest of the UK regulatory bodies.

Some were totally unknown to me such as the Panel of Takeovers and Mergers and the Competition and Markets Authority.

Others sounded familiar, but I did not know what their role was prior to my study. That would include the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) or The Financial Policy Committee.

The difficulty of this chapter was definitely its length and the importance of the information it contains. Almost every single line is crucial and there is no other way than learning by heart.

Some questions in the test simply test the knowledge of the regulatory principles but others require one to apply those same principles in case studies.

It means learning everything verbatim is not enough, you also have to understand what you are learning.

The second and fourth chapters also involve learning the material by heart, but they are thankfully much more succinct.

The first chapter was probably the most destabilising one to me. It smoothly starts with an introduction explaining how the financial system works, who the different actors are and how money circulates between them.

It then abruptly delves into a world that was completely unknown to me: investment exchanges and their infrastructures.

It required a lot of back and forth between Investopedia and the study book to understand what things such as central counterparties, market makers, clearing houses, SETS, SETSqx, bid-ask spread were.

Chapter 5 was the sunshine after the rain. It purely focuses on investment, which was the reason why I chose to study for the IMC in the first place.

It gives a description of the different categories (and sub-categories) of clients and asset classes.

There is also a limited (but interesting) financial advice piece. It includes among others fact find, establishing investment objectives and how to allocate a portfolio based on those objectives.

The chapter also looks into the asset allocation in different types of pension funds, general insurance and life insurance.

I really enjoyed the strategical dimension in this chapter. It was, at least to me, more stimulating than regulations and it also means that I did not need to review this chapter very often.

But against my initial expectations, chapter 6 is the one I preferred.

As it deals with UK taxation, I feared it would be incommensurably dull, but there was also this strategical dimension that made this chapter as stimulating as the previous one.

Obviously, you have first to learn all the UK taxes that are relevant in an investment context, but once it is done, that is when it becomes interesting.

First of all, you have to learn all the computations to calculate those taxes but also strategies to mitigate them.

Maybe tax planning was my true calling, who knows?

How I prepared

I had a lot of apprehension while preparing for this exam. Of course, I have sat exams in an academic context before, but professional exams were something new to me. I did not know what to expect.

Also, I had to deal with a time constraint. The study material is renewed every 1 December and I started in late August, which means I had to successfully pass the test for this unit 1 before 30 November. I was not too eager to start all over again almost from scratch and I am not sure my bank account would have liked me to pay the fee for a second attempt.

As a result, I followed the recommendations provided by CFA UK (the body organising the IMC) very scrupulously.

It advises at least 100 hours of study for unit 1. Since I am not a finance professional,  I knew I would need more.

Therefore, I aimed for 100 hours just for what I called the “initial phase”, which was about memorizing the study book five times and writing down things I had trouble memorising. It’s time consuming, but I find it makes it easier to process information.

It is very tempting to read passively, it happens instinctively. But writing (especially in your own words) forces you to actively engage with the content.

After an initial skim read of the study book, I had a rough of idea of the length and complexity of each subchapter.

I then allocated those 100 hours for this “initial phase” between late August to 28 October. The point was to ensure I would have two weeks left before the test to focus on my weaknesses.

On 28 October, the result was below the requirement threshold. While the recommendation is that you should score at least 75% at the mock exams, I only got 71% at the mock test I took immediately after completing this so-called initial phase.

But it was a good opportunity to identify my areas of weakness and the two final weeks were dedicated to remediate to those shortcomings.

I read over and over all the subchapters I had not well assimilated and practised the mock exams again and again until I scored above 90%. In total, I have spent around 150 hours to prepare for this exam.

That was sufficient this time around.


It was an interesting experience and I feel relieved my efforts bore fruit. I am not getting complacent though. I know I have only completed the easiest unit of a relatively “beginner-friendly” certification.

I have learnt plenty of things, some of which will, I hope, be useful in my work.

It also answered some questions I had been asking myself for a while. For example, I did not know much about the UK regulatory bodies beyond the FCA.

I guess I also now have a vague idea of what advising clients on investment requires and how to structure their portfolio (I am not saying I would know how to do it, I just roughly know how those things work).

The most immediate benefit I gained from this unit is a solid overview of the UK tax system. With the upcoming Autumn Statement, I hope to be able to make good use of what I have just learnt.

However, I do wonder what I will remember of it in say six month’s time. This is especially true of the contents that had no relevance or link to what I do in my everyday (all the things related to investment exchanges for example).

But I suppose, even pros do not retain everything they have learnt while studying for their certifications.

As I have not had any free evenings over the past few months, I will give myself a break until December. Although I must say, it already feels strange not having to study after work. It just does not feel normal.

I look forward to start learning for unit 2. From the few I could see, it will be much more mathematical than unit 1. I hope time has not eroded my numeracy skills too much (I used to be an accountant a while ago).

Hopefully, this Weekend Essay will have a part II in a couple of months.

Killexams : Investment Banking Series 79 Exam

Passing the Series 79 test is required for applicants of entry-level jobs as investment banking representatives. In addition to the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam, this test is a necessary step to obtaining registration for the job. Both tests are administered by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

The Series 79 is considered a lighter version of the Series 7 exam, but don't be fooled because it's deceptively difficult. Keep memorizing to learn more about the Series 79 exam, including prerequisites, what you'll need to pass, and the breakdown of the test.

Key Takeaways

  • Financial professionals who want to work in investment banking are required by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority to pass the Series 79 exam.
  • Candidates must be sponsored by a FINRA member to take the exam.
  • The test is a multiple-choice test with 75 questions covering syllabus like debt and equity offerings, mergers and acquisitions, and financial restructuring.
  • The test takes 150 minutes and is taken on a computer.
  • A passing grade is 73% and above.

The Basics of The Series 79 Exam

Focus on Investment Banking

The Series 7 was required of all financial professionals, including those who wanted to become investment bankers prior to 2009. Investment banking is only a small portion of the Series 7 exam, most of which is more relevant to the functions and services of retail securities firms. An investment banking committee agreed on the major duties, job functions, and tasks associated with those working in the field after conducting a job analysis. This allowed for changes to be made.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the new Series 79 exam in 2009. This test, which is also known as the Investment Banking Representative Qualification Examination, is commonly referred to as the Limited Representative Investment Bankers exam because it was designed for entry-level investment bankers.

There are specific areas of finance for which one will likely need the Series 79 license. FINRA Rule 1220(b)(5) defines the different types of representative categories, and section (i) Limited Representative-Investment Banking gives a thorough explanation of the areas.

Series 79 test Prerequisites

The Series 79 test satisfies the Series 24 prerequisite as a representative exam. Since the test focuses on investment banking, the Series 24 General Securities Principal is limited to investment banking supervisory responsibilities if the candidate only has passed the Series 79 exam.

Testers generally need the Series 79 registration even if they already have the Series 7. This is one of the only cases where the Series 79 can be used as a prerequisite instead of the Series 7. Candidates may need the Series 79 to work in a number of key areas, including debt, equity, or mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Debt or Equity Offerings

Companies have several options available to them when they need to raise money. Along with borrowing money from a financial institution, they may issue a debt or equity offering:

  • A debt offering normally comes in the form of a coupon or corporate bond, in which the issuer promises to pay the bondholder or investor their principal investment along with interest by a certain date.
  • An equity offering, on the other hand, involves the issuance of new shares of corporate stock. Doing so gives investors an ownership stake in the company.

Debt or equity activities that may require a series 79 include:

  • Pricing of securities in debt and equity offerings
  • Origination, which deals with equity capital markets and debt capital markets
  • Underwriting
  • Marketing
  • Structuring
  • Syndication
  • Managing the allocation and stabilization activities of offerings

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) and Restructuring

Advisory services are a very important part of an investment banker's role, especially when it mergers and acquisitions. M&A refers to the consolidation of companies or assets. This can take place through a number of financial transactions. Some responsibilities that a Series 79 might be required for under this category can include:

  • Tender offers
  • Selling assets
  • Corporate reorganization or divestitures
  • Transactions involving business combinations, which might include rendering solvency and fairness opinions

Series 79 Exceptions

Series 79 registration may not be required for professionals who have limited involvement in investment banking activities. There is some leeway, though, in some jobs in which new associates rotate among various business areas and departments for training purposes. These financial professionals are generally given a six-month grace period while they are training. For a complete guide to exemptions, look at FINRA Rule 1230.

The genuine Exam

A tutorial on the test is provided prior to taking it. The test is made up of 75 multiple choice questions and is completed on a personal computer. Each candidate’s test includes 10 additional questions that do not contribute to the candidate's score.

Candidates are given 150 minutes to complete the exam. The results are available immediately after the test as a pass or fail grade, with a breakdown of the candidate's performance in each section. Individuals need to answer 73% of the questions correctly for a passing score.

Candidates must be sponsored by a FINRA member to take the exam. Requirements for eligibility include taking the appropriate qualification examination. Individuals are required to pass both the Series 79 and SIE exams in order for test-takers to become registered.

You don't need to be take the Series 79 and the SIE exams at the same time.

Test Sections

There are three sections to the test. The 10 additional questions are scattered throughout at random and are not identified as such.

Collection, Analysis, and Evaluation of Data

This is the largest section, taking up 49% of the test with 37 questions. It includes identifying the relevant data and knowing where to find it. For example, you may need to know what will be in proxy statements Form 14A or Form 4s for beneficial ownership of directors.

This section also goes into communicating with various departments and clients, using metrics and ratios, and analyzing trends to evaluate what you have found in the firm and sector data.

Candidates are also tested on their understanding of due diligence activities in this section, such as the regulatory requirement for the buy and sell sides.

Underwriting/New Financing, Offerings, and Securities Registration

This section has 20 questions, making up 27% of the test.

It deals with regulations for filing and registering securities. This includes forms, such as the prospectus, as well as rules, and required financial statements.

This section also covers the distribution of marketing materials and any associated rules.

M&A, Tender Offers, and Financial Restructuring

With a total of 18 questions, this section is roughly 24% of the exam.

Some of the issues covered in this part of the test relate to buy-side and sell-side transactions, the fairness opinion, and SEC rules and regulations. It also tests a candidate's knowledge of tender offer regulations and financial restructuring.

All About the Investment Banking Series 79 test FAQs

Is the Series 79 Easier Than the Series 7?

The Series 79 and Series 7 are two different exams required by financial professionals who wish to obtain registration by FINRA. While the Series 7 is required by all securities representatives at the entry-level, the Series 79 test is a requirement for anyone who wants to work as an entry-level investment banker. The Series 79 test is 75 questions and takes 2.5 hours while the Series 7 is made up of 125 questions and takes three hours 45 minutes to complete.

How Hard Is the Series 79 To Pass?

The Series 79 test is more difficult than the Securities Industry Essentials exam. The SIE test is commonly considered an introductory test while the Series 79 involves concepts that may be more complex required by those who need a higher degree of skills in the investment banking industry.

How Do You Prepare For the Series 79 Exam?

There are a number of Series 79 prep courses you can take in order to prepare yourself for the exam. These courses provide you with study materials and practice tests that you can take. Many of them come at a cost, ranging between $200 to $300.

Who Needs to Take the Series 79 Exam?

Financial professionals who wish to work as entry-level investment bankers are required to take (and pass) the Series 79 exam. Candidates must also pass the Securities Industry Essentials test in order to obtain registration, although it isn't required that the exams are taken together.

The Bottom Line

Anyone who wishes to perform certain duties in the financial industry must become a registered representative with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. In order to become registered, individuals must pass certain exams. The type of test depends on the type of position they seek. Professionals who want to become entry-level investment bankers must pass the Series 79 exam, along with another test—the Securities Industry Essentials exam. The Series 79 tests an individual's knowledge and skills in a number of areas, including debt and equity offerings, along with tender offers, mergers and acquisitions, new financing, and financial restructuring.

Killexams : The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization Launches Certified CMMC Professional Exam

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.--()--The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization (CAICO) today announced the formal launch of the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) test that is now available to qualified candidates within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Ecosystem. The CCP examination verifies a candidate’s knowledge of the Department of Defense (DoD) CMMC framework and the roles and responsibilities of various positions within it. This is a key milestone for the program, as having trained and certified assessors ready to support Certified Third-Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAOs) is paramount for the successful scaling of assessments across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).

“The CCP test represents the foundation of an individual’s journey to becoming a CMMC Assessor or Instructor and can open a wide variety of career opportunities,” said Kyle Gingrich, the CAICO’s Interim Executive Director. “CCPs, bringing their industry knowledge and expertise, are like apprentices who are continuing to build upon their prior experience with new CMMC skills and knowledge. They learn as they go— not only through training and exams, but also through hands-on experience in the field.”

The beta test program for the CCP test was conducted from August through September of this year. The CCP beta test enabled the CAICO to gather the qualitative and quantitative data required to assess how test items were performing so that development could appropriately refine and enhance the test to ensure it validates the knowledge a CCP is expected to demonstrate.

“With the launch of the official CCP exam,” Gingrich noted, “we are validating that those individuals who achieve the CCP certification have a standard and consistent working knowledge of CMMC as a whole and how it is implemented in the context of assessments.”

CMMC certification exams are not publicly available. To gain access to the test registration process requires successfully completing CCP training through a CAICO-approved Licensed Training Provider (LTP), which are organizations that deliver formal CMMC professional training. Individuals seeking CCP training to pursue their certification can select an LTP through the Cyber AB’s Marketplace. More information on the qualifications and timelines for CCP and CCA certifications can be found on the Cyber AB’s Assessing and Certification page.

To find out more about the CCP test itself, the CCP Blueprint can be found on the Cyber AB’s website at

About The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization

The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization (CAICO) is the dedicated CMMC entity facilitating the training, examination, and professional certification for individuals within the CMMC Ecosystem. The CAICO is a wholly owned subsidiary of the CMMC Accreditation Body, Inc. and operates as a nonprofit organization with federal tax-exempt status.

Killexams : Hitachi Energy debuts wireless grid tech that prevents wildfires

Hitachi Energy just launched wireless Spark Prevention Unit indicators that help prevent wildfires by enabling remote monitoring.

According to the US Department of Energy, approximately 10% of wildfire ignitions are sparked by faults on electrical infrastructure or electric equipment failure. Hitachi Energy’s new Wireless SPU Indicators allow utilities to monitor the grid remotely, in real time, with automated visual inspection rounds.

The SPU monitors the current and thermal load of surge arresters – which protect equipment from surges in the power system – installed in wildfire risk areas.

If there’s a thermal overload in the grid, the SPU interrupts the current flow and disconnects the surge arrester, thus preventing any arcing – which is when a circuit becomes overloaded and overheats – sparking, or ejection of hot particles that could potentially start a wildfire.

Hitachi Energy’s new Wireless SPU Indicator

A visual indicator on the SPU lets the utility field crew know that it needs to be replaced. Hundreds of thousands of SPUs installed in some of the world’s most wildfire-prone areas, such as in the United States and Australia, have had a real impact in preventing wildfires. Being able to monitor them remotely is only going to Excellerate wildfire prevention.

No fewer than 11,629 candidates participated in the second batch of the 2022 Teachers Professional Qualifying Examination, PQE, conducted by the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN, nationwide on Saturday.

This was disclosed by the TRCN’s Director of Examination and Licencing, Dr Jacinta Ogboso, who monitored the exercise at SASCON International School Maitama, Abuja.

Ogboso revealed that Abuja had the highest number of candidates, with 982 teachers, followed by Lagos and Anambra.

“We have a total of 11,629 candidates who registered for this examination nationwide, and in FCT here, we have 982 candidates who are registered,” she said.

Speaking on the importance of the exercise, she said apart from academic qualifications, teachers’ professional qualifying examination is important for teachers to obtain licenses for their practice.

“So, we no longer depend on the academic qualification; after the educational qualification, we are sure that people who are going to the classroom to teach our children are actually professionally qualified; so that is why this test is important.

“If you do not pass this exam, you will not be registered by the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, and once you’re not registered and identified as a teacher, you will not be recognised as a teacher in Nigeria and anywhere in the world.

“So that is why this test is very necessary and crucial; no professional qualifying examination, no teacher registration certificate, and no licensing by Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria,” she said.

Ogboso added that candidates who fail the PQE would be given three opportunities to write, noting that no teacher who went through teacher education should fail the test more than twice.
