One thing the ICCP has always worked on is to try to keep the government from requiring a license to be an IT professional. Because with the government it will turn into more of a good ole boys club than a true competency proof or at least will run it at a lowest common denominator. Also, if they can't stop that to at least make their certification effectively the license since it is skill and experience based with a requirement to stay current.
I wish there was something similar to a CPA. Something recognized within the industry. Is this where we as professionals should take responsibility and push CCP as our stamp of approval or does the government or other organization need to accept responsibility.
Not to pick on you but I noticed that you were certified as a "Assoc. System Operator V4R1" now that fewer and fewer systems are at V4R1 how valuable is it? It shows that you knew the details then but what about the changes all the way to V5R2?
Good point. Actually, V4R1 was the latest cert I could take. But you are correct. The differences between V4R1 and V5R2 are many.
