Don't believe him: the only Real Advanced Perl Certificates are to be ordered from me. They come in full colour prints (you may even choose the text colour yourself) on thick cream-coloured paper with (of course) Gothic lettering and hand-signed by myself. To make sure that these certificates are the real stuff, they come with a certificate stating that they are real and valid for any legal purpose. You cannot get them any more official than that!

    Well if you really HAVE to have a Perl Certifcation that is from someone that an Employers HR Dept. MIGHT respect, you could try the one from CIW. It used to be just a test of Perl that was part of another Certification, but now it is a Certification on its own, CIW Perl Specialist.

      Sure, a Perl test on a PHP page: that seems legit. ;-)

      I was just curious, but I got Bad Request (Invalid Hostname) and same for http://www.ciw-certified.com/store/perl.php.

      maybe they could not sell enough certificates ? ;-)

        Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.

        No, CIW is quite alive and well, although they were revising their website back then.

        http://www.ciwcertified.com/Certifications/Web_Development_Series/perl.php

        It's actualy part of a trio of exams that you have to pass to earn the CIW Web Development Professional certification, the other 2 being CIW JavaScript Specialist & CIW Database Design Specialist.

        The HR types love certifications, and the CIW Web Development Professional combination of a front-end scripting language certification, a back-end programming language certification, a database certification, and a web development certification is an easy way for them to check off the boxes for a position in Web Programming and Development.
