    Certifications

    I am trying to improve both my marketability as well as the image of my employer. In doing so, I have been looking at gaining some certifications. Primarily, I have looked at both the Zend PHP certification and the MySQL ceritifcation.

    What are your opinions on the advantages/disadvantages of industry certifications -- Not just the ones I listed, but really any?

    Re: Certifications

    I think it would be much better to have a portfolio, I really doubt these certificates mean anything to companies.

    The certificate may not be accredited worldwide, but having it shows some level of knowledge. It couldn't hurt, even if it doesn't help.

    If you're referring to Web Languages (HTML/xHTML, CSS, JS), then certification could be outdated in months/years probably as it's always in a state of flux.
