Get Certified as a Web Professional

The world is full of people who think they know how to be Webmasters

and Web designers, and some of them really know their stuff.

Unfortunately for employers, very few ways actually separate the wheat

from the chaff. The Association of Web Professionals (AWP) offers three

certifications designed to prove that you really are a Web professional

to potential employers.

A not-for-profit organization based in Mississauga, AWP offers the only

vendor-neutral certification program for Web professionals endorsed by

several major Internet players, including Microsoft Canada, IBM,

Netscape, Hewlett-Packard, Novell and others. Although vendor-specific

certification programs are available addressing specific software

packages, a vendor-neutral program can be a big plus. It can be put to

use at any company, regardless of the type of software being used.
