Should there be a tiered vendor certification system where some exams cover only basic, vendor-neutr

Learn why a tiered IT certification system that begins with testing vendor-neutral skills makes the most sense.

I think it's a good idea. It all depends on how it's applied. I think that it's always good to have an exam with vendor neutrality because you want to validate fundamental skill sets and fundamental aptitude. Obviously, from the vendor perspective they're looking to certify on their specific technology, either to give their partner what they feel is a competitive advantage or just to validate the quality of their partners themselves.

But generally speaking I like the idea of a tiered model because I think it covers more bases. It's not as black and white as I think some of the other certification models that exist today are.
