What does all this mean?

I sure don't know. It seems to make some people more comfortable if they are hiring a "certified" person. It shouldn't: the tests are pretty meaningless, and I have seen plenty of Certified Folk who I wouldn't trust anywhere near my systems, and conversely I know people who have flunked these exams but who I would not hesitate a moment to employ.

Since it makes some people happy, I guess I'll keep on going and add more "certifications". As other people are more impressed by real ability, I'll try to maintain that, also.

See No Wizards here too.
