I have to ask, other professions have certifications and courses, some
required to work in certain professions and for job advancements. Why is it
that certifications in computer related professions have a reputation as
being unnecessary and somehow beneath qualified people? My partner is a
teacher and he had to take courses and certifications to advance in his
career, and I recall my Aunt having to take an exam to earn a certification
in her loan officer position to advance as well. Aren't certifications and
the like just a normal part of a professional career?
