Study Shows Downside of IT Certification

Deborah Rothberg reports in eWeek on the "Q1 2006 Hot Technical Skills and Certifications Pay Index":

"The study suggests that there has been a change in employers' acceptance of the value of non-certified tech skills versus certifications in maintaining competitive pay for their workers.

"This is the first time skills have trumped certifications since our firm began surveying tech skills pay in 2000," said David Foote, president and chief research office for the workforce research and consulting firm, in a statement."
