New Certification Process for Freelancing Programmers
Freelancing Programmers who want to greatly expand their options to work as telecommuters may want to look at this:
The Intelligent Community Initiative has announced a certification program for telecommuters in conjunction with the website virtualvocations.com. This certification program will provide prospective employers with a pool of individuals who have passed a three-tiered certification process, not only revolving around technical abilities such as the use of software such as Skype, Google talk, and SightSpeed, but also around higher skills possessed by professional telecommuters.
The best news is that this certification process is free to those who want to become contributing members of The Intelligent Community Initiative(membership is also free).
This certification project is just a small part of a much larger project known as Operation Energy Transition. One of the goals of Operation Energy Transition is to promote telecommuting as a way to conserve energy, and to help workers, businesses and the nation cope with rising energy costs.
