IMHO, the SRA certification has been around for awhile, and I believe it 
has some credibility in Japan...While I'm not sure what its credibility 
is like here in the US - the fact that it has credibility in Japan is a 
big plus .

The CertFirst certification (examsonline.com), seems to be administered 
online (as opposed to SRA's which is at a PearsonVUE test center) - 
which basically means that it's open book, open note, call your friend, 
copy the questions, etc.  It also seems that CertFirst runs the 
certification themselves under what appears to be a shell company called 
"examsonline".  It looks to be more of a marketing ploy than anything 
else....

Based on the fact that they are a provider of training under the WIA act 
in IL, I'd suspect that they need a certification so that they can sell 
their programs to the unemployed folks that are getting free training on 
the gov'ts dime.
