Abstract

Driven by the incredible pace of technological change the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) vendors have led the charge in promoting industry based technical certifications. Today, there are a plethora of instructor led, intensive, short courses that provide training in an ICT vendor's product and prepare participants to sit a certification exam. Increasingly, vendors are developing expanded certifica-tion programs suitable for inclusion in high school, college and university courses. Although these pro-grams are attractive to students and educational institutions, there are obstacles to be overcome and risks to be evaluated when attempting to integrate a certification program within a traditional offering. This paper examines these issues in detail.
