The O'Reilly School of Technology and the University of Illinois have partnered to offer Certificates of Professional Development in information technology and related skills.

You can learn the skillz and earn professional certificate. You will find courses related to:

=> Web development

=> UNIX Admin

=> Perl/ PHP programming

=> HTML, CSS, Java etc

The university will issue certificates if you complete course work. Most courses costs under $400 + $10 for rental of online lab.

Personally I’m looking to join Perl programming certificate.

O’Reilly and Illinois have actually had those courses for quite a few years now. I remember thinking about taking some back in 2002-2003. I wonder why there’s the new marketing push for them?

I wasn’t aware of old partnership.

May be they have re-branded the same thing with more features.

More than likely. A few years ago, the classes were tucked away on O’Reilly’s website and didn’t have a site of its own.

I wasn’t criticizing your coverage — I was just curious about O’Reilly’s motives. :)

No problem! To be frank I need some feedback on their courses. Otherwise both zend (php) and mysql offering official certificates.

Appreciate your post.
