Re: Seems extensible
Lucius, Do you see employers willing to invest in keeping their employees' certs up to date, and in new certs? I was a bit surprised to see in our salary surveys how many IT people do get company-paid training. Maybe they do it on their own time, but at least it's not on their own dime. The downside from an employer's POV would be that these workers are then attractive to other employers, and job hopping is the best way to get a nice salary bump.

Seems extensible
As high school diplomas become increasingly worthless on their own, from a hiring perspective, employers have people coming in with certificates for everything from project management to HVAC -- this isn't just an IT issue. Seems like a standard way to rate extended ed that's in between HS and an Associate's is really valuable.
