    Just wondering who out there has their Apple Certified Technical Coordinator (ACTC). I'm going to be doing it shortly. A friend of mine did it and he's getting good money now so I'm curious to know what other peoples experiences are. How they like it, what are the most common things you do when people call you? Do you work for a company or on your own? Is there constant work? etc.

    Also, I emailed Apple about this, but maybe someone here knows. With the next OS coming out in the next several months, would I have to upgrade to a new certification, would that mean retaking the whole course or just a cheaper upgrade course? Etc.

    Thanks!

    I'm interested in this myself. Here is a Link to Apple's training site if you did not already have it.

    Apple is becoming much more aggressive about certifications, as they want a much stronger presence in the world of IT, where certifications rule.

    I would guess that after a new OS is introduced, you would have a certain amount of time to become familiar with it, and a further test would be required. Just a guess of course.

    The only odd thing I've heard, is that you take the test at Sylvan prometric test centers on, (you guessed it) windows PC's.

    That's good to know. There's seems to be a huge lack of IT support for Apple systems (meaning if you want something fixed you have to call Apple and/or send them your product).

    I emailed them and asked about the update to Leopard and they replied that it would most likely be that they send you documents and you take a test. But there could be a chance of an upgrade course.

    Haha, that's funny that you take them on Window's PC's, but I imagine it's just a simple multiple choice test, so technically you could take it on anything ;)
