BlackBerry certification programmes



I sent an email to RIM a while back about the future of the Java BlackBerry certifications and I was told that they would be discontinuing this programme at the beginning of next year.


Does anyone know if there are going to be any new development certifications brought out? I've only been doing BlackBerry development for 2 years and I'm still a beginner, but I'd like to go after a certification to go along with my experience. There is nothing in the way of an Android certification and the J2ME cert is pretty much dead wood. I have my Java 6 certification, but I'd like to go for something more oriented towards mobile development. Is there anything decent out there?

Re: BlackBerry certification programmes

Why bother?


You'd be better off just jumping in head first into BB Java Dev. It will be phased out completely within 2 years. You'd be better off looking at tackling ActionScript for BBX.
