Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by lazrin(m): 4:19pm On Feb 02, 2007
You gys tended to send only professional exams which were mainly related to th IT industry, what about those in finance marketing and d like? stockbroking? etc, and just out of curiousity, just how widely recognized and important are the CFA certified financial analyst, and CIS chartered institute of stockbrokers?
Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by Christino(m): 8:45pm On Feb 02, 2007
Koko is right about that list and i'm following it down in that order till i touch 5 and for God's sake i'll have to skip 3 and 4 grin

Meanwhile of all professional exams, i think ACCA are the only ones with a valid accompanying University Degree. BSc. Applied Account.

CCIE on the other hand is, if not the most sought after IT Cert.
Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by ukgold(m): 9:49pm On Feb 02, 2007
Rebirth and Koko's list are okay but, i feel this Prof. examz are inclusive
1. ICAN
2. Oracle 9i, 10g and Oracle financials
3. CISA - certified information security auditor

Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by Christino(m): 10:10pm On Feb 02, 2007

Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by Ejiro4ng(m): 2:04pm On Feb 03, 2007
I think ICAN, CIMA, COREN Have pedigree and shoud be among top ten professional qualifications.

I think CIMA (ACMA) is the argueably the best Accounting professional body .
Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by funmise(f): 7:20pm On Feb 04, 2007

Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by senetee(m): 11:25am On Feb 06, 2007
Hi all,
Does anyone know anything about ITIL? Hear its a worthy IT management certification.
Would also appreciate some comments on the CFA programme.
Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by wetinde(m): 5:22am On Feb 08, 2007
ITIL is a worth while certification to have if an organisation has multiple platforms and its infrastructure undergoes an enourmous amount of change. I am unsure if it is used in Nigeria at all because there are not many organisations that meet this criteria.
  In summary ITIL is a process of managing and improving service delivery . You can go into service management with certification of this nature. This is more about being customer focused and proactive than being technical. You will need to have basic all round IT knowledge as well. You can get info from www.itil.co.uk. You will have a better chance over other candidates when applying for a project management or IT management role
CFA (Certified financial analyst) now that is an area which I would leave for the business oriented people to advice you on.
Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by gbyg(m): 11:10am On Feb 08, 2007
Among these certifications list by u guys which of them is very relevant to Electrical/electronics graduates.
Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by TBoss: 10:58pm On Feb 08, 2007
ITIL is used by Mobil, Chevron, Celtel, MTN and most big companies. For some of these companies ITIL foundation is a requirement for getting into their IT departments.
C.F.A is to finance what ACCA is to accounting (not certain about this though). PMP is also a high ranked certificaion for Project management.
Re: Top Ten Professional Exams by frankiriri(m): 11:47pm On Feb 08, 2007
