Dude, this is what is happening now in Malaysia. I know this throughout my colleague at ITTUTOR.NET forum they had been discussed about this Professional Recognition for IT Professional. Its like the Ir given to competend Engineer in Electrical or Civil or Mechanical. But in IT can we have this sort of professional recognition. For me yes we can but it must be conducted spesifically on candidates expertised. So your comments will be much appreciates. Oh, forget to mention this program conducted by Meteor Sdn Bhd http://www.meteor.com.my/index.php?op=view&m=9&page=37 (full article including exam fees etc.).
