    Mornin' folks. Just a quick question...

    Anyone got any advice for someone getting started with Apple Certifications? I am not an IT person, per se, but close.

    I have looked through apple.com and kinda got an idea of what I need to do, but you guys are always so knowledgeable that I would appreciate any sort of input that you might have.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Yeah

    I have already been there. Signed up for an online test, and I'm being prompted for a "proctor" log in.

    I've sent emails to apple about it trying to figure out what to do.

    Jeez...you'd think an online test where searchable reference materials are available would be a little easier to take than this...

    And, it's been 4 days since I sent my first email requesting guidance.

    So what's your goal in getting these?

    I've always been curious who is really going through the Apple certification process?

    At one time, I considered trying to get Apple certified, but I looked around and realized I don't have a clue of a single way it would help me advance my I.T. career? Everyone I've ever seen who is hiring for a position as some type of network administrator, PC support specialist or the like is never asking about an Apple cert. I guess Apple themselves probably want these, at least to work in the back room of one of their retail stores as a tech? But I doubt the pay for that is as good as anything I've gotten doing I.T. work for small businesses around town?

    Am I just missing a whole field out there where these have real value, or is it one of those things a lot of Apple fans get just to say they have it (or hoping it will look good on a resume, despite the employer not actively looking for it)?

    What world are you living in?

    @kingtj

    Apple certification is a requirement at my job at a medium-size company. It's also a requirement for anybody working for Apple Professional Services. APS is where you purchase XYZ equipment for Apple and need them to configure it and set it up.

    But don't take my word for it. Do a search for 'apple certified' on Dice.com
