Given that an important part of my professional life is focused on IT certification, I regularly spend time digging into and researching available programs and credentials, and keeping up with changes in th overall certification landscape. As I work on such things, my go-to information resource has been and remains Anne Martinez’ terrific GoCertify Website.

For example, this weekend I found myself responding to a request for a list of IT certification training companies and providers for them to target for upcoming advertising. Because the list of cert programs and credentials at GoCertify is so complete and comprehensive, I was able to compile a targeted list of top offerings, and to easily zero in on the best training providers for that collection of credentials.
But that’s just the tip of the huge berg of information available at GoCertify. You can use it locate certifications by topical area, level of expertise involved, and distinguish vendor-neutral from vendor-specific certs. You can also read current cert news and cert-related articles, check out the GoCertify blog, find links to quizzes, practice tests, books, and training providers, and a whole lot more.
I simply don’t know of any better general clearinghouse for IT Cert information, and I think you should know about it, too. If you don’t already visit GoCertify.com regularly, check it out! But be prepared to lose some time as you explore its many treasures and information troves.
