    Has anyone taken the New Silk Certifications?

    I was just wondering if any one has. If so what did you think. i.e real world type questions, length of test, Any coding.

    I will be taking them next week in Chicago.

    I am not looking for answers but just curious as to what I will be getting myself into.

    Re: Has anyone taken the New Silk Certifications?

    I have not taken them, but am interested in doing so just to be certified and thus a bit more marketable.

    I have read mixed reviews on the courses. I believe you need to take two classes and pass with a certain score on each. You can also just take the test on the first class since it's more basic for experienced users of Silk.

    Please post your experience after you took the classes. Most importantly if the course was overall worth it and if you got what you wanted to from the course.

    I would take the classes in a heartbeat if my company had the funds to do so, but I am thinking in perspective of one who would pay out of pocket for the courses.

    Re: Has anyone taken the New Silk Certifications?

    Are they letting you take the tests only ?

    I am in Chicago also and I saw that the "Advanced OO 4Test class" is next week, 4/30 and 5/1, but when I called Segue, they said I had to take the class @~$1500.

    They said I could not just take the tests to get "certified" at $250.

    Re: Has anyone taken the New Silk Certifications?

    Sorry for the delay. I was off testing. I am taking the classes as well Custom Objects/Advanced OO. They are 1500 apiece. I am getting the better rate on the tests for taking the classes.

    I will give a full report when I return on the 6th of May.

    Be ready to cough up 1 month salary, if you are in India. Certification is not very easy, though have not yet taken it. But I am studying for it.

    I sent several requests to Segue to reduce certification fees in India but no results
