Why not allow a "None" option? Very active in Linux, it's basically my career, but I'm not of the job category which has certifications.

Gentlepeople, I think it's perfectly safe to say that all of these certification programs are created by professional instructional designers. In the right contexts, e.g. Oracle-oriented training in an Oracle shop, Red-Hat-oriented training in a Red Hat shop, all of them might be "wunnerful, wunnerful." (Pardon me, Lawrence [Welk] ...)

But, notice that I said, training. Not, certification.

"Continuing education" is a wonderful and important thing. I've spent many evenings for many years teaching that very thing. But it isn't the same thing "to pass the test that would be given at the end of the course," than "to take the course, sit in the classroom, and learn from both the instructor and your fellow students." And, as many a 4-year college graduate has painfully discovered, "a diploma don't mean squat" unless you cause it to become an asset for you. (Just as many other people have done quite nicely without one.) "It's what you do, not what you have."

Determine what it is that you want to learn, why you want to learn it, and all of the options you have. (For instance, in USA, the community-college system is still alive and well.) Your employers probably do have programs that will defray the costs, such as they are. Don't put your hopes in a piece of paper .. no matter where it came from .. that might become a dart-board.

Funny I initially felt a little hesitant in requesting "None", but now I look at the early poll results ...

None. Though the only job I had in which I used Linux it wasn't relevant, sadly.

That 'None' entry is doing pretty well! I'd be willing to bet that several of it's entrants are vastly less rusty than I!!

None, I am an amateur enthusiast -- but I suppose that must be obvious by now...

What are member's thoughts on having the next poll be a single choice "Which Linux Certification Would You Most Like To Obtain"?

How about an Expired, Bizarre, or Defunct option? Some of us had to pioneer that mess .

Sair Linux/GNU Certified Professional #5636EC

Last edited by EYo; 01-17-2015 at 02:00 PM. Reason: P.S. "None" currently. Training swag deck of cards had young Linus on the face cards and Gates the joker.

While it's unlikely we'll add these as poll options, those members who have certs like this should feel free to post about them.
