Green IT Gains Cert Traction

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Although there’s not much going on at CertCities.com anymore — except for Emmett Dulaney’s long-running and always informative “Dulaney on Certs” column — I still make a regular habit of checking on what he’s up to, and what he has to say. This morning, my regular check-in produced a couple of unexpected benefits (thanks, Emmett!) in that it taught me something I didn’t realize, and reminded me of a certification technology niche that’s incredibly worthwhile in and of itself. That cert niche is green IT, and what I never realized was that CompTIA’s Strata certification in Green IT aims at technology managers and implementers rather than total newbies, as do its other Strata credentials. So please, check out Emmett’s “Focus on Green Certification” (10/16/2012) piece, and then go visit the CompTIA web page for its Green IT credential (as an added bonus this is a short — 60 minutes — and cheap — US$100 — exam, as CompTIA offerings go).

There’s lots more where this came from (and seeds for an article for PearsonITCertification.com or perhaps TomsITPro.com have been planted) but this should be enough to get anybody started. Go Green!
