Ray Camden on ColdFusion Certifications

Ray’s post on ColdFusion Certifications is pretty spot on: The one problem, on top of those outlined by Ray, that I’ve had over the years, is that very few certification courses have a decent break down on what exactly they expect you know.

Combined with the fact that there are so many features in CF which I’ll never need to touch, like exchange integration etc (well, not yet at least) that I fear the weighting in such an exam wouldn’t sit in my favour.

Perhaps they should move onto a peer review model where some assesses an application you’ve written? To me, that would prove you can a) analyse a problem b) come up with a solution and c) implement the solution in CF, along with the necessary skills such as MySQL.
