I just saw a job posting where RUP certification was 'mandatory'. I wasn't aware there even was RUP certification. Anyone actually have it?

I haven't heard of such certification either. Maybe it's yet another "10+ years .NET experience required" thing...

From a google search result:

Getting an RUP certification means that you have demonstrated competence
in handling restricted use pesticides properly.

Certainly usefull when working on a Ranch...

At one point I think Rational had a certification for RUP trainers, but I can't find any evidence of that program still existing since the IBM merger. Can't see why somebody would want that for a developer anyways.
