I think it's a good question and it must be taken seriously. The Application Packaging becomes a huge and very complex process that must be standardized at some point. I don't know about the certificate but we may need to identify the level of the knowledge somehow.

The two main vendors, Symantec (Wise) and Flexera (InstallShield), both run courses for their products, after which you would expect to receive a certificate of completion. How valuable that might be is questionable. I have never been asked if I have Wise/InstallShield certification nor have I ever - to my recollection - seen it as a requirement in job postings. In this game, there is no substitute for experience.

8 months old? You should be playing with toys and and crawling around- not packaging applications.

I for one do not relish a return to Victorian child labour conditions - if you're not careful they'll be sending you up chimneys next!


Seriously though, vendor courses show you how to use their products - as long as you understand Windows Installer you can get on with both of the main players tools.

Experience and knowledge are what really matter - in an interview situation you can spot someone without the knowledge in just a few questions.
