I am a big advocate of certification – putting your money where your mouth is – and have been for years. Heck, my first certification exam was “windows 3.11 and dos 6.22 for support professionals”. I’m not joking – it was my first cert and first course I took what seems like EONS ago. When I saw this announcement come in – I had to quickly blog about it.
