There is this tekst:

How much is the cost for the exam? First of all, Spring has removed the grandfathered mode of buying voucher. Now you have to mandatorily attend the prohibitively expensive training courses (I find it insanely priced and policied, why can't I learn by myself and take the certification) to get a voucher to take the examination. The cost of training depends on account type and date and time. Account type depends on whether your organization is partnered with springsource or VMware. My organization has not partnered (and I belive that is the case with most of the guys out there). So for me it costs around $2511 + taxes, to take the training (to earn the voucher) for Spring Core between dates 10/26/2010 - 10/29/2010. Nope, I'm not spending two and a half grands for one certification. My organization policy would not allow me to reimburse one certificate that cost more than $500.

As far as I know, that's correct--the class is a prerequisite.

They're a commercial entity, certifying people on their product--it's one of the ways they monetize an open source product. The cost of the exam is included in the course cost.

No certification for me :-(

I would have done a self studie, and paid for the certification, but $2511 + taxes is to expensive...

It schould have been maybe $500 + taxes lika a java certification.

So NO Spring certification for me
