Are certifications important?

In a profession such as information technology where technologies and methods are constantly changing, industry-recognized certifications are important, and in many cases are essential.  While having a certification does not necessarily translate directly to being an “expert”, it is certainly an indicator that a person has a strong understanding of a given body of knowledge. Additionally, most if not all certifications have a continuing education requirement, so having an active certification is a good indicator a person’s knowledge is current.
