Q1. What motivated you to obtain the AIC certification?

Q2. Do you have any memorable experiences from the AIC training and examination?

A2. During the AIJC, it was all classroom learning, but the AISC, being two days long, allowed me to deepen my interactions with other participants, which have remained valuable connections. The AIMC was especially enjoyable as it involved real consulting experiences through interviews with top management.

 

Q3. What activities have you been involved in since obtaining the AIMC certification?

A3. As an AIMC instructor, I have been actively teaching AIJC and AISC courses as an AIPA instructor, which has been well-received by students. Additionally, as an AI and IoT consultant, I have had the opportunity to work on public projects, give lectures, and write articles, for which I am very grateful.

 

Q4. What benefits have you experienced after obtaining the AIMC certification?

A4. Thanks to the association, my professional network has expanded, leading to more job opportunities.

Jun Takagi

Q1. What motivated you to obtain the AIC certification?

A1. The IT vendors around me were actively promoting IoT, and some of my clients were interested in IoT, which increased my interest. Therefore, I decided to challenge myself by obtaining the AIC certification to learn the basics through a formal qualification.

 

Q2. Do you have any memorable experiences from the AIC training and examination?

A2. The ability to step up from AIJC to AISC and AIMC is very appealing. While AIJC and AISC need to be renewed annually, it is crucial to collect the latest information and gradually upgrade the certification level since this is a cutting-edge field within digitalization. Each stage was very practical, which stands out in my memory.

 

Q3. What activities have you been involved in since obtaining the AIMC certification?

A3. Although my work has not changed significantly since I already hold qualifications as an SME consultant and IT coordinator, learning about AI and IoT has broadened my perspective on utilizing IoT data with AI. The AIC training and examination provide systematic learning of both IoT and AI through the DX Consulting Process (DXCP), which is effective for companies' DX initiatives.

 

Q4. What benefits have you experienced after obtaining the AIMC certification?

A4. While I originally recognized IT management promoted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry as my strong suit, I have now expanded my consulting activities to include the latest technologies. This allows me to better assist SMEs that understand the importance of integrating AI and IoT.
