    Has anyone seen details of the Green IT examination from compTIA, I have noticed it before and just read the objectives now... is anyone even going to want this in the workplace on a serious note as part of the objectives are about 'car pooling', 'use public transport', 'compressing working week'

    Depends, there are a few "Eco" companies out there, and remember while it's a general certification, it's aimed more at the US market.

    Saying that with the new work parking levy being introduce by Nottingham City Council with the view to roll it out nationally. Companies over here may soon have to take this into consideration whether or not they want to.

    I definitely like the idea of compressing the work week personally! I would happily do 12 hour days if it meant I only had to work 3 day weeks. More time to spend at home with the family and stuff!

    Although realistically I suspect a 4 day week of 10 hours is more likely, but even that I would much prefer to the current 5 days a week working schedule.

    I would also like 4 day week, and happily work 10 hours a day for this to happen so then could have a nice balance of 4 days in and 3 days off

    A colleague of mine has it. He talked a lot about thin-clients and virtualised servers while he was studying for it. If you seriously want a low down on it, I can find out. Just say.
    He reckons it's one for the future. A lot of companies, including the parent company of my own, like to show off their green credentials. He figured he should get it done before it became mandatory for us.

    I'd also like the 4 day week, of course working 4 hours per day for full time money ;)

    IT-related training, certifications and degrees can help candidates with less experience.
