I recently found the web site http://www.expertrating.com, that offer online certifications for various graphics design applications for only $9.95. Anyone has experience with this company?. Is recommendable for improve our reputation as a creative professionals? or is just a money-in-trash inversion?. How compare this certification with the Adobe's ones.
Personally, I say your work is the only proof you should need that you are competent at your craft. This is especially true if you are running a business - for any client to ask if you are certified would be truly ridiculous if your reel is strong.
On the other hand, if your reel ISN'T strong, no amount of certification matters at all. I would avoid paying for such things, even if it is only $10.
