XML Certifications

Posted 29 September 2010 - 04:24 AM

I am currently aware of 2 certifications XML Master and W3Schools. XML Master is given through Prometric testing centers, while W3Schools is given online. W3Schools has the option to have a "Supervisor" watch you take the test to make sure you don't cheat and then his/her name and title are printed on your certificate, while Prometric is a known and respected testing center that has very strict no cheating policies. For the W3Schools cert I could get the Vice President of Research and Development for my company (Dr. so and so) to "supervise" it.

My question is, which looks better to future employers? Are either one of them actually worth spending the money on?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

What do those out there with hiring experience think when they run across a certification that they have never heard of before? Does it peak interest or just get blown off as a lame attempt to get attention?

I wasn't aware there were xml certifications. Isn't that like being certified in HTML?
