Citrix is betting that recent favorable press about its certifications program will attract IT professionals to the programs: A Foote Partners' Pay Index report placed the Citrix Certified Administrator on the "hot certifications" list, stating that it grew more than 15 percent in 2004. According to the company, a key selling point of its program is that the new model eliminates costs of unnecessary training and allows users to secure critical, real-time credentials that can be immediately applied to an IT professional's current workplace.
