Lotus announces new Domino Security certification. Is it for you?

Tags :

I saw the formal announcement hit the newswires.  Lotus talked about this coming on a webcast a month or so ago and it has finally seen the light.  It seems this has some more qualifications to even pass the test compared to previous ones.

New IBM Security Certification
IBM has just released a new designation for Notes and Domino 7 professionals. The new certification is named IBM Certified Advanced Security Professional - Notes and Domino 7. The single exam for this designation is Exam 755: IBM Lotus Notes Domino 7 Implementing and Administering Security. You must first be an IBM Certified Administrator for Lotus Notes and Domino 7 before you can earn this title.

So the Lotus site goes on to state that you must be a CLP in Domino 7 and then take this exam.  Here is the part i found interesting:
You must receive a passing score for each of these areas plus you must receive an overall passing score

So there are 3 sections listed and you have to pass each one to get the certification unlike previous exams.  Nice touch!

Do you see the value in this exam?
