Certification is just like a medal on a Major's Shoulder. It is a proof of Concept for u. It says that we have knowldge upon it.
Jobs hardly requires a certificate, what is need is the knowldge upon the product.

My certification has helped me to more fully understand the product.  I was certified as a Data Protection Specialist and as a Data Protection Designer and then a Symantec Technical Specialist. 

All gave me a more robust understanding of the product.  Filled in the gaps so to speak.  It definately made me more productive design and delivery of the product but thats not what I do anymore.  I now support the product.

I Although the certification is not required ... I want to be certified... for confidence in the craft...
After the Symantec Technical Specialist certification... is there another level after that?
is there a ladderized certification on Symantec AV/AS just like Cisco does?
