in reply to Perl Certifications ??

Certifications are very controversial.

In terms of Perl (and other open source projects), there's no "official" certifying organization the way states will certify engineers, or the way companies will certify users of their products (ie, Microsoft, Sun, Novell, etc.).

And assuming a respected third party does certification tests, there are still lots of problems:

So you can tell I'm anti-certification.

What to use in place? Go to training courses and conferences. That's a better way to demonstrate you've been keeping yourself up-to-date on the technology.
