Hey everyone my friend from apple has got me interested in taking the test to become final cut pro certified. I was wondering how many of you have the same certification, and if you think it is worthwhile? Its a bit pricey so before I spend any money on it. I want to know it is at least somewhat helpful in getting jobs.
I don't know if it helps or not for getting work but if I were doing the hiring for an editor, it would have more to do with what work they've done in the past over some silly certification. Certificates only prove you know how to use the program, not that you can artistically edit a film.
Just a thought.

Apple Certified Pros are recognized as highly skilled users of the chosen application. This allows you to differentiate yourself to employers and colleagues as a certified professional to promote career growth. A certificate from Apple distinguishes you as an Apple Certified Pro and you will have the right to use the Apple Certified Pro logo on your business cards or website.
According to me:
You spend money. Apple makes money. You get nothing applicable in the real world other than telling someone you know Final Cut. I'm not certified yet I edit 80 hours a week. Regardless of what you put on a resume pertaining ot editing, anyone is going to ask to see your work or see you edit.
Where is it good? If you don't know Final Cut well and want to take a paid course in how ot use it properly.
