I was looking to contract out some development work and when I attempted to verify a candidate's credentials, I was surprised to find this on FM's website relating to certification:
"FileMaker will not deny or confirm individual names of FileMaker certified developers. The certificate is your proof of certification. Your employer will be advised of this policy."
So, how do you tell the "real" certified developers from the "fake" ones that claim they are certified, since there is no way to verify? Yes, I understand "the certificate is your proof of certification" but doesn't it seem odd that FM is a database company yet they don't keep an accessible database of who is certified? I guess I don't see the harm in FM verifying someone's credentials for FM's own certification... this could be an easy look-up on FM's website.
Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill. I just found it odd. Anyone have any other insight on this?
