Subject: Re: Is it worth certifying in JAWS?
I think we are pretty clear and this is pretty straightforward. It’s a certification available from FS themselves on their website. It really is not a big deal. Like I said, I took it because my employer pushed it – otherwise, I might not have bothered. I’d only include it on a resumé if I was pushing training expertise somehow. To be honest it’s not something I am vastly interested in so I don’t really mind falling behind in renewing the certification. But it could help some people. No harm in taking the test, anyway – if you really want to work in this field.
This reminds me of my favorite definition of the word expert by the late folk singer, Bruce U. Utah Phillips.
An x is a has been, and a spirt is a drip under pressure.
A true certification in Jaws from Freedom Scientific is likely worth something, but beware of any offered by another group without investigating whether they are legitimately offering a certification with the endorsement from Freedom Scientific.
