I've been in IT, programming in RPG for over 30 years from the IBM 360 Model 20 through the System/3, through the System/38, and now on the System I(AS/400). I've been a manager, director, etc. I have never taken a certification test, and at this point in my career, I have no intentions too. Tests are all well and good, but some people do better on written tests, and not so well in practical application. I think its up to the individual whether they think that it will be worth their while. When I hire someone, I look at the work experience, problem solving technique, etc. long before I would look at whether they are certified or not.

An interesting thread was started on Slashdot about IT Certifications (http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/10/06/0337209). I'm curious as to how valuable certifications are in the System i market. david
