Anybody who’s read this blog for any length of time (or any of my other cert-related blogs for Tom’s IT Pro or PearsonITCertification.com) already knows how often and reverently I refer to Anne Martinez’ GoCertify.com IT certification website. Simply put: it’s a rare gem of useful, current information about nearly every IT certification program known to man amidst an ocean of incomplete, inaccurate, and out-of-date information. In the past couple of days, Anne has granted me permission to share with my readers her ongoing quest for more cash-ola with which to run GoCertify, so she can continue to deliver the great news and information she’s compiled about IT certification programs from Access Data (A) to Zend (Z), and many points in-between.
The GoCertify.com logo and some of its banner info tell only part of the story
Over the past decade, I have come to rely on GoCertify.com as a thorough and comprehensive source of IT certification program and credential information, built upon a database with great search capability. I’ve used that database to look for credentials by vendor, by name, by category, and even by specific word searches in the certification name. I’ve used it as a primary source to compile my annual Security Certification Survey for SearchSecurity.com, my annual Networking Certification Survey for SearchNetworking.com, and to find and learn more about dozens of articles on Top 5 Certification programs for Tom’s IT Pro, plus various “Cert by Category” articles for PearsonITCertification.com.
I believe that GoCertify.com is an invaluable source of IT certification information, and entirely worthy of purchase or investment from somebody with the vision to see and appreciate what’s there — which I personally have aplenty — and the necessary cash to buy into or buy up this treasure trove of IT certification and training information — which, alas, I do not have in anywhere near equal measure. So spread the word if you want to keep this nonpareil web site available and healthy: GoCertify needs a buyer or investor. I’m sure something will come up sooner or later to get Anne the funding and resources she needs to keep up the great work. Perhaps with your word in the right ears, it could be sooner, rather than later. Thanks! If you’ve got a lead or idea to suggest, please contact Anne by e-mail.
