Beyond the Top 5: More Mobility Certs

Best Mobility Certifications For 2017
By , Mary Lemons

There are many more mobility certifications that can give job or promotion seekers an advantage.

Professionals who work with VMware products should consider the VMware Certified Professional 6 — Desktop and Mobility (VCP6-DTM) certification. This cert identifies individuals who can deploy and configure Horizon with View in a vSphere virtualized data center, as well as use View and other technologies to implement and manage virtual desktops and applications.

The Alcatel-Lucent Mobile Routing Professional (MRP) recognizes networkers who design and deliver scalable mobile IP/MPLS networks and services. Alcatel-Lucent also administers a Long Term Evolution (LTE) certification program for professionals who support LTE networks. If you're interested in SAP, the company offers several SAP Mobile certifications on application mobility architectures that leverage the SAP Mobile Platform.

Some honorable mentions also go to the Certified Casper certifications by JASF Software, the Mobility certification from NetMotion and the GIAC Mobile Device Security Analyst (GMOB), a foundation-level cert from SANS GIAC. Also keep your eye on a new certification — the Credentialed Mobile Device Security Professional (CMDSP) — by Mobile Resource Group. The credential is aimed at Android and iOS device administrators and architects, and it is on par with (if not more challenging than) the CompTIA Mobility+ cert.

Because the mobile arena is so active, we're quite sure you can find still more mobility certifications after this article is published, some of them probably noteworthy (that’s why we update these stories regularly).
