dotMobi Introduces World's First Cross-Platform Mobile Developer Certification

The Web development community now has a certification program to recognize professionals who demonstrate excellence in mobile content development. dotMobi is introducing the world's first cross-platform mobile Web developer certification program. dotMobi, the company behind the .mobi domain - the first and only Internet address designed specifically for mobile phones - and partner Prometric are now making affordable certification available.

dotMobi professional certification is the latest program designed to provide developers with the tools and training they need to create quality content for the mobile internet. dotMobi certification provides developers with a competitive advantage by allowing them to demonstrate their expertise to clients who are seeking to take their businesses mobile. dotMobi certification is proof of specialized knowledge in development across multiple platforms - not just for .mobi sites. Developers who pass the dotMobi certification program, which adheres to W3C "Mobile Web Initiative" guidelines for mobile content, receive the following benefits:

  • Certificate for display and a personalized .mobi site with proof of certification
  • Access to dotMobi trustmarks for use in marketing materials
  • Inclusion in dotMobi's directory of certified developers for client referrals.

"Our certification program is the next step in the evolution and growth of the mobile internet," said Neil Edwards, CEO of dotMobi. "We are committed to providing the development community with the tools and resources it needs to create quality mobile content on any platform. Quality content is essential to fostering the growth of the mobile internet."

dotMobi is working with Prometric, the global leader in certification testing, to administer the certification tests. "Prometric has served as a reliable and secure testing partner to industry leading businesses worldwide, and we are pleased to support dotMobi's new certification," said Ray Kelly, Senior Vice President, Client Services, Sales and Marketing. "As the demand for mobile content grows, so will the demand for qualified professionals to develop content that will work across all mobile platforms; Prometric and dotMobi are well-suited to accommodate this growth by helping to set the level of knowledge necessary to develop qualified professionals."

dotMobi is launching the program with a special $195 promotional rate for 90 days; that reflects a discount from the standard $250 price that will be in effect beginning July 1, 2007. Candidates can register for certification by visiting www.prometric.com/dotmobi.

Other development tools recently introduced by dotMobi include dev.mobi, an interactive developer forum and ready.mobi, an evaluation tool that tests the mobile readiness of any Web site. As part of its commitment to growing the mobile Web, dotMobi is providing, at no cost, all training materials needed to complete certification testing at http://dev.mobi.
