Wow… Did anyone receive this email ?
I passed my CLP 10, few years ago.. And it really look like Novell AGAIN give free certification without even having to pass an exam… OR I’m wrong and this is a scam or and april fool on march 5 ?
Certified Linux Professional 10 ( Exam passed around 2008 at Brainshare)
Few months later I received the Novell Certified Linux Administrator ( Free!!! )
Now Data Center Advanced Technical Specialist!!! ( Free!! ) The date on the certificate is in 2008… ( Did Novell find a way to time travel ? Maybe this is why Eliott and Associate offer nearly 2 billion dollars to buy Novell )
And… it’s not only one it’s two “certification” Data Center Advanced Technical Specialist AND Data Center Technical Specialist.. lol
Having fun on an old computer business who had better time… Priceless
Wow.. Some people are probably happy with this, but to be honest it just prove one thing.
The Novell certification doesn’t mean anything… If you passed the clp exam you probably already know that this certification is not serious at it could be… Even the engineer ( CLE ) is a big “joke”, you can take the “migration course” if you got the CLP from a previous release, and you got the same exam + one question from the engineer exam…
Good job Novell, you are ruining the credibility of your certifications! Sad for people who put their money on those certifications in hope this was going to help them in the business.
I once believed that Novell was going well and can have a great future in the Linux business… Day after day, they prove they don’t understand a lot of things on how to create value from their certificati0ns… And I’m waiting to see where they are going with their Linux distribution…
Anyway, this is really weird, Novell don’t even talk about this certification on their website…
This post is my current understanding of this “email”. If anyone got more information or if you think I’m wrong and someone can explain this feel free to post a comment…
