is better you know how to use kali linux and wireshark than getting certification. I don't know why Nigerians like certificates too much.

I can't really tell per say, but those guys are raking in dollars. Whichever you look at it, Ethical Hackers and Tech Experts are really in high demand, following a boost in the industry these days especially in Sub-Saharan Africa.

How many times do we have to preach to skids that certifications != competence.
Here's my reply to someone who once thought the same.
EvilSec:

I wasn't hired because of a degree or certs. I taught myself hacking, made a free page to post about it, which eventually got me noticed. I even got offered a job by GCHQ after submitting a CV which consisted only of blog posts.
If you can't afford hundreds of naira for certs, don't let people convince you it's the only way. Certs are a way to prove you know at least something, but there are many ways to do that.

I know certificate does not equal competence but your certificate can give you edge any where in the world.

In your case, you seem to be more interested in getting certs.
i am HIGHLY SUSPECT of people who:
- put certs in their last name field on linkedin
- start every bio with their certs
- start every convo with their certs
- put their certs in email sigs

it suggests they want you to look at their certs and nothing else.
which is shady. I’ve got certs myself, but it’s never been a pro title of mine or desire. Common sense and raw skillset has always gotten me further than I’d ever wanted to go.

Hello man all I'm saying is when searching for job you will be asked to present a certificate
