    BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, has signed an agreement with Prometric, a leading global provider of technology-enabled testing and assessment services, which will deliver its new Foundation Certificate in Green IT exam worldwide via its network of IT test centres.

    The qualification is designed to help individuals gain an in-depth understanding of the environmental issues associated with IT, including improving energy efficiencies. It provides candidates with a broad understanding of the regulations, legislation and policies, carbon energy accounting and how to create a green IT strategy.

    Michiel van der Voort, Executive Director, International of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, explains: "I’m delighted that we’re offering the Foundation Certificate in Green IT exam via Prometric’s network of test centres. Understanding legislation around carbon accounting is vitally important today for any business and IT professionals around the globe have a key part to play in this."

      The surefire way to have me trash your resume or CV is to do one of the following:

      1) admit to being a braindumper
      2) get overcertified without the experience to back it up
      3) indicate to me that you buy into all the man-made global warming nonsense

      However there are 4 things that haven't been said, regardless of whether or not you believe in Global Warming:

      1. After the initial out lay for changing to Green Tech, businesses will be saving money on running costs from eg lower powered PC's, server virtualisation, and thin clients etc... Less money paid out = more profit for the organisation.

      2. Law, Legislation and Compliance. E.g. Carbon Reduction Commitment (UK)

      3. Social Acceptance, like "fair trade" products, organisations that are "green" have access to another market.

      4. Besides... You do not have to take this certification (or the Comptia one).

      Thank God we don't have any of that mess yet.

      For those of you who don't know... carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant.

      Social acceptance? Please. :rolleyes:

      In truth, I'm glad that they have these initiatives, so I can know those companies who choose to waste money due to a bunch of misinformation... so I can choose to not do business with them.

      No, I don't have to take that certification. But I can choose to pass on those who do.

      Sorry, dude, I'm a degreed chemist, and the whole "green initiative" is a load of crap.
