    Anyone have any thoughts on the usefulness of any of the HDI certs? http://www.thinkhdi.com/certification/

    Other than their website I haven't found a lot of info about them.

    Never heard of them mate.

    By looking at their website though it looks like they give you a 'certificate' with their name on it rather than any 'known' certifications. So the training may be good, and you may learn things, but you will not have the recognised cert at the end of it.

    Nice site.

    From the brief look I had, it appears they train people to *do* certain jobs and not offer a certification that most people (and employers) are familiar with.

    This isn't all bad - to do this probably means they have good trainers who train professionals to make their job easier/ learn new technologies.

    It would be better if they offered a recognised Cert at the end of it for me personally.

    This seems to be specificaly for help-desk people, and seems to be very USA-centric.

    So I'd say that that for other than help-desk requirements, and also for those of us in the UK, it won't be very useful.

    I'm sure our American cousins will have something to say though?

    Haven't heard much about them. Unless I'm totally out of the loop on this one, they're not widely known.
