    Dreamweaver MX Developer Certification?

    They are now giving out Dreamweaver MX Developer Certifications, provided of course you pass the exam.

    Has anyone heard good things about this? Is it worth getting? Let me know what you think.

    The Coldfusion certification from Macromedia is supposidly a overpriced piece of sod


    I assume you are talking about the Macromedia course. I'm sure taking a Ciw exam would be better money spent.

    Yeah, I'm talking about the Macromedia stuff.

    I think you may be right. They have also just released a web developer exam so I'll probably go for that.

    Is CIW the most recognized certificate you can get in this field?

    I think so not sure to be honest though. Maybe you shoudl look into some college exams.

    Do you have a local development authority, they should be able to help you out a bit.

    umm bfore you waste your money on the ciw, take it from me 5k later...

    goto monster, dice or any other job search and type in CIW..
    see all the wonderful jobs? no.. i did not think so.. you might be lucky to find some jobs but they are for instructors.. to teach CIW.

    &%&^%&^$$@$#%@^#(*@&#)(*#(*@& curses <---------


    i taught our instructors web design... that is a joke.

    sorry, but i could have bought 5 grand worth of beans... pretty much what the CIW cert amounts too a hill of beans.

    I agree with you. That's why I'm thinking of taking the Dreamweaver Exam instead. Although it might not be any better than taking the CIW at least you will be certified using a piece of software that is well used in the industry.

    I do see a lot of companies listing "Dreamweaver" as their requirements so who knows. It can't hurt I guess to have it and I feel I can pass the exam since I've been using Dreamweaver for a long time now. Definitely going to study before I take it though.

    What do you think? Did you complete all the CIW exams?

    personally i would *never* hire anyone who put down they were a "certified dreamweaver developer". sorry.
    you need a portfolio to get a job: freelance, real or otherwise. even if you build a cheesy site for your aunt's hair salon.

    i agree with you and fortunately i have a good portfolio so i do not fit in that category. i wouldn't hire someone too if they were a "certified dreamweaver developer". you need to show the goods.
