Techie lottery

Interesting lottery, Cabe. I haven't seen anything like this before. Depending on the winner, this could be a significant prize, or a minor one.

It might give someone a leg up, but if companies already have their sight set on an H1B visa holder, all the training in the world isn't going to help a US citizen.

Definitely an interesting promotion.  Certification is an important part of IT especially with all of the networking solutions available.

It would seem that Firebrand should place restrictions on their lottery with entries given to those with little to no IT training at all. Otherwise I agree with Rob in that the winner could already have significant training in their respective field making the lottery kind of a moot point.

Now certification is offered by many companies in many domains like Cisco's CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert), Red Hat's RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer)... Is there any guidelines to choose the best certification, best company?

Exactly  Rob, this will be a interesting lottery.

And on the other hand they are doing a well planed and well targeted advertising campaign for their potential target group in a very silence way.

Cabe now the education has become a business. So many of the service providers are in the education market. There are many certificate courses and degrees programs in the market which will give a two three letters after the course but no ingredients at all. What about this course.

Rob I agree this lottery approach to training is quite interesting. With products becoming more networked and information being at risk, IT Security is definitely needed. Nice article Cabe!
