Good points on the lack of available employees-it's an issue that's not going away anytime soon. However if you have employees that are long term it would boost their pride in their work to have a certification. And they could mention it to clients as a way to enhance the image of your company as well.We can barely find employees
Certification has become LESS common in the last decade, not more common.
I think the only people the cert programs have helped is ALCA/planet/Nalp
It's just not practical
When you can't get any employees in the first place
Narrowing the field would make the problem worse
If that's even possible
