Are My Courses Certified?
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   9 years ago

Nope. Sorry. My courses are not certified by any other organization. My courses are offered for your personal enrichment only. I don't claim to get you ready for any certification testing (here's why).

I do guarantee, however, that after finishing my courses you WILL know the material. If you follow along with my lessons, build the project that I build (spreadsheet, database, whatever), follow all of my instructions, and ask questions in the Student Forums if you get stuck, I guarantee this is the best way to learn.

When you finish my Excel course, you WILL know how to build professional-quality spreadsheets. When you finish my Access course, you WILL know more about databases than most people I've interviewed for database developer jobs!

Now, if you need a piece of paper to show your employer, or you want to add 599CD to your resume, that's fine. You can use this link to print out a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION for any courses you've taken. However, speaking as a former employer of tech people, a certificate doesn't mean anything to me. I've interviewed people with LOTS of degrees and certifications who don't know anything... and other people with little or no formal education (LIKE MYSELF) who know Access, Excel, Windows, etc. inside and out.

I would hire the latter person every time!

An email confirming I have completed your courses (i.e. once I have completed them!) is all I am going to need in terms of certification. And yes, I agree with you: Degrees & Certifications cannot be equated with Knowledge. Regards... Read More...
