Certification and Certification

The past decade has seen a proliferation of certification programmes. Some are better and some are ****.

There as a time when I had friends who sought out any and every certificate they can collect. I think there is a slowing down. One reason is the economic recession that makes people and employers more careful here they put their money. Another is the realisation that jobs depend on more substation life things than just certificates.

Certificates are still useful. But you better be good in the subject that you are certified in. I think the days of getting jobs based on certificates of subject matter that one has no knowledge beyond the exams is largely over. And that’s a good thing, for employers and also for genuine training providers and certification bodies’ reputation.

Hmmm….. do you smell a fish?
