Passed two more certifications

I have this year passed two more CRM certifications

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Customization and Configuration
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Installation and Deployment

it’s interesting because I sometimes wonder how valuable certifications are but I have certainly learnt a lot of information about the product and I think I know have a broader knowledge of the subject.  Where as before I had a working knowledge of the product.

Personally the value I put to certifications is it gives me something official to show for the hours of effort I have put in.  There are many people who have read a technical book but you can’ t put that on your CV (although you can add it to linkedin!)

I also think Certifications are a good way to get some experience in a product which you might not be using everyday in your work or maybe are using certain parts of it but you want to learn about other sections.

I also read that people who are certified get 5 to 10 percent higher wages.  I don’t think this is just about the certifications but it shows that those people are willing to put extra effort in outside of work , ambitious and are trying to get ahead in their career.
