Gov't approves e-biz licensing system
By Park Jae-hyuk
The government has authorized a licensing system for e-trade and e-commerce, the Korea Institute for Electronic Trade and Commerce Promotion (KIETaC) said Wednesday.
"Korea should train e-commerce experts to integrate Korea, China and Japan's digital markets into a single one and make the country a leader in global e-commerce," KIETaC Chairman Shim Dong-sup said. "Licensed experts should bring industry innovation, through being hired by related firms or running their own businesses."
In order to introduce the licensing system, KIETaC enacted several rules this April related to management and operation of the system.
The government has strictly examined the rules and finally approved the system to take effect on Nov. 11, KIETaC said.
KIETaC said it will recruit applicants for the license through its website kietac.or. kr from Nov. 14 to Jan. 31 next year.
Each applicant will get 80 hours of education on weekends between Feb. 4 and Mar. 25 next year and successful ones will be certified in April, according to KIETaC.
They will take 16 general electives, including courses on the Electronic Trade Facilitation Act, electronic finance and 22 specialized subjects, such as electronic trade simulation and an introduction to global B2C and B2B.
More details on registration and courses will be available on KIETaC's website.
KIETaC said it will provide full support and give various benefits to licensed experts on e-trade and e-commerce.
It plans to add points to firms hiring licensed experts, when it selects companies to invest in.
If the experts establish their own businesses, KIETaC will add points to their businesses during their investment assessments. KIETaC will also recommend the licensed experts to related businesses.
When an incumbent worker takes courses for the license, KIETaC will cover tuition costs, cooperating with the Ministry of Employment and Labor.
Established last November under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, KIETaC aims at training human resources specialized in electronic trade and e-commerce and plans to establish an integrated platform for e-commerce markets in Korea, China and Japan.
