SQLAndy

I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.

Certificates of Completion for SQL Seminars

Most managers and employers distinguish between attending a conference and training. We (the royal SQL community we) offer quite a few one day seminars during the year that clearly fit that simple definition of training, but I don’t think we’re closing the loop. We should be giving them/sending them a nice printed certificate of completion, something that validates the effort and the spend.

It’s simple to do, which isn’t to say it doesn’t take some effort. Seems to me to be a great place to leverage our investment in full time staff.

It’s not a big leap to think about assigning some number of PASS certified continuing education units/credits. Why aren’t we doing that?
