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.

What do such machines really do? They increase the number of things we can do without thinking. Things we do without thinking — there's the real danger. (Frank Herbert)
