Well, it's a good investment for my business, & it looks great to customers. :D :^:

As long as we are discussing certifications, we've been looking at getting PayPal Developer Certified. So I've been reading & studying up :)

I wonder what other certifications are others looking into?

I received 4 CIW certs while going to school.. Has anyone else completed any CIW programs? What are your thoughts on them?

To stick with the op, I think that I would be interested in the HTML one.. Just for good looks :)

In my opinion, this certificate is only "nice to have".. Looks good but no-one sees a need for it.. :blink:

I was thinking of getting the HTML and CSS certs from W3C. I was also thinking of getting J2EE certs since my company has a huge need for Java programmers, as well as getting a .Net cert and C++ cert. Was at one point thinking of getting MSCE, and a couple of ther MS certs. My company loves for you to have acronyms behind your name, even to the point that we are required to get Life Insurance certs even if we are techs!

I was reading on their site (because I just might do the XML Cert) and it says on one of the pages that you can elect a "supervisor" to watch you take the test and make sure you don't cheat, and then their name and title are printed on the certificate. That does add a certain level to the certificate I would think. Does anyone agree that this is worth doing?

It depends whether or the not the manager knows anything about IT or not. I have had managers who thought an A+ certification (which is about as dumb and pointless as you could get) really meant something.

After this experience, I realized that if the market was full of like minded people, then I'd better get certified so the spreadsheet expert would know he wasn't hiring a dummy. lol.

This. Generally with hiring, we are dealing with managerial/HR types, who are some of the most frustrating people in the world to deal with.

I thought you were interested in anything with a pulse and body. Didn't know you wanted only the bodies.
