What a headline! 5 Reasons Certifications Aren’t Worth It. This definitely got my attention. I had to read more. The 5 reasons according to the author, David Bolton are:
Technology Moves Too Fast
2. The Certifiers Are… Who?
3. Employers Don’t Really Care
4. It’s a Rip-Off
5. It Only Proves You Can Pass Tests
We believe certification isn't a waste of your time. Here's why.
If your business is in IT Services or Support keeping your skills and knowledge up-to-date is critical. The fast pace of technology is actually a good reason to stay-up-date with your certification. There's great personal risk of becoming obsolete by not keeping up with new features and new technology.
An Oracle Certification is industry recognized, We have 2 million people across the globe who have achieved an Oracle certification credential. This is a certification that won’t be worthless when the next big thing comes along. 97% of the Fortune 500 companies run Oracle solutions.
Our experience is that employers care very much about certification. Your personal reputation definitely helps, but what about when you are trying to win business or go for a new job? We learn in many ways these days but certification is still an industry recognized benchmark of knowledge and technical skill.
We try hard to keep it fair. It’s true some people are better at test taking than others. In all our exams the odds of passing are low without hands on experience. Oracle Certification exams are developed by a group of Subject Matter Experts who follow the strict industry standard process. A lot of work goes into building an exam. Exams are repeatedly reviewed following psychometric guidelines to ensure only the best questions are used.
According to “Value of IT Certifications,” CompTIA, October 14, 2014, 93% of hiring managers believe an IT certification is worth it too.
