I belong to the BCS which certifies people as Chartered IT Professionals. Now I'm doing a part time degree for personal gain really and also to hold weight and gain Charterd IT professional status, but I would only have to work another 2-3 years to gain that anyway I reckon.
Funny, I'm just waiting to get my CITP processed.
I take it you have a degree?
I was thinking of applying, but I have 8 years experience and some industry certifications. Got references that can account for my work in the field, but I'm not sure if I should wait for a bit and gain some more experience.
