Blackberry Training/Certification?
 
Is there any training or certification available for Blackberry BES administration? Device Management/troubleshooting?

If so, let me know. I'm very interested in becoming more knowledgable and certified in this technology if possible.

Thanks in advance.

I just saw the banner at the top for Consilient, so I will check them out, but are there actually any certification exams I could take to be a Blackberry Certified Professional or something along those lines?

Interesting, I found a resume on the web with the following:
BlackBerry Partner Zone Certification
BlackBerry Certified Technical Associate (BCTA40)
BlackBerry Certified Enterprise Sales Associate (BCESA40)
BlackBerry Certified Support Associate (BCSA140BWC, BCSA240BWC)

Have tried various searches, but as yet have not found any certification programs.

I'd be interested in this too. I'll be checking back to see if anyone knows of any.

:-o ...hanging in suspense ...

In house certification and Partners (Verizon was mentioned) only - what a disappointment!

I sent an e-mail to:

[email address]

Requested information on BlackBerry training specifically leading to BlackBerry Support Certification. Please feel free to join me in letting RIM know there is a market for BlackBerry Certification.

wow... I have 7 RIM certificates... but ya, I am a partner>

cd.

I have a hard time believing that Verizon is certified in this technology. Their customer support is the worst in America rivaled only by Comcast.

Response from RIM:

Thank you for your interest in BlackBerry Training.

At this time, certifications are only available to partners of Research In Motion. We are exploring the possibility of having them available to those who are not partners of RIM in the future.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Kind regards,

Corey,

Was it similar to Cisco or MicroSoft certificiation where you need to to take several exams for each cert?

Each cert has several course requirements, where each course is basically an online interactive flash presentation followed an exam. I got my BCSA140BWC & BCSA136 with about an hours worth of effort.
