I reallt dont think that the certification that people take is
really a reflect of their knowledge i mean why is there
certification..
cause there is people that want to make money out of it.
Certification should be issued by a non profit organisation that
would
really take time and build test that test the users and it not
related to $$$ witch is one of the reasons why the industrie
right
now is
divided betwen people that know what they do and other people
that
think they know cause they where tought and are certified. No
all
certified people are certified for money but alot and ALOT of
them
are cause they could do the same job whitout being certified but
by
being certified they can just make the big bucks..anyhow that
was my
less than 2 penny opinion.
