Are there any zend certified engineers present ?

I would like to know if the online courses are worth their money.
Are the teachers good ? Or do they just read from a textbook ? Can you ask questions ? Do you have a lot of contact with your fellow students ? Did you learn a lot ? Apart from the six hours a week online training, how much time do you have to spend each week learning, making homework, ... ? Does the online training prepare you for the certification exam ?

When your applying for a job as webdeveloper, say you already learned PHP on your own and have a couple of months to half a year workexperience, does it makes a difference when you are a Zend Certified Engineer ?

No I'm not a zend certified engineer. But to answer your question; does it make a difference? Sure it will. Hell, in this business anything notable on your resume will make a difference.

Good luck with everything, buurman.

I work for a guy who is certified.  He just finished up his last few online courses about a month ago, so I would say that they are worth it.
