Certification environment is very operating system and engineering technology dependent these days

Erik Eckel has a Tech Republic blog entry on “The 10 Best I.T. Certifications: 2010”, link here.

Leading the list is Microsoft Certified Information Technology Professional (MCITP) (link)

In 10th Place on his list was PMP, Project Management Professional.

What’s interesting is how his list moves away from programming and development disciplines, as with Brainbench certifications, or concepts like “procedural programming”, OOP, and systems engineering, as with the ICCP, with which I was certified in the 1990s. Sun has very elaborate examinations for certifying professionals in java.

But the whole certification environment, while having grown a lot since the mid 1990s (“Before Java”)
