For many who enter the cmna program, they are exposed to the world of business communication for the first time. They learn how to interact with a variety of different people and different cultures, learn how to work in teams, and learn about how to interact with the public (and how to not).
Before starting a cmna program, a lot of people assume they have to be able to speak fluent English, because the cmna program is about more than communication. Many people are also told they have to have a strong interpersonal skill set, which is all well and good. In a cmna class, though, there is a lot of emphasis on communication skills. As a result, people often have trouble following directions and staying on-task.
We get that there are some other aspects of cmna certification that should probably be taught in a class, but this is a very common problem with many first year programs. People think they have to be able to communicate with the public and stay on-task, but most of this is just because they don’t have all the skills they need to interact with the public.
There are a lot of other types of certifications that are usually only needed when it comes to interacting with the public. This is something that has to do with your ability to learn and react to situations. For instance, a certification in computer science does not necessarily mean you are good at programming, so you should not necessarily have to be a good programmer to qualify for a certification in that field.
In fact, a lot of certifications are just used by developers and companies to get around the government regulations. They are used as a way to get around the federal government, but most of them are pretty useless and should not be taken seriously. There are still the other certifications to consider. For instance, an engineer is good at creating objects, but not good at programming. A web developer is good at creating objects, but not good at programming.
For the purpose of the current discussion, I am going to ignore the other certifications. I have no idea what they are, and if they are useful at all it is a waste of time for the rest of the discussion. So I will focus on cmna.
This is a certifying board for designers who are interested in being allowed to do the job they are supposed to be doing. The purpose of this certification is to make sure that you do indeed understand the job, and do so in a way that is technically correct. This is a bit like the CMM certification, except instead of being given a written test, you will be given a set of coding tests.
This certifying board is a great way to get the general feeling that people on the board are okay with using an application they are not supposed to. The first thing to note is that there are no technical standards, just technical requirements. The reason that you need to be able to test something is that you have to understand the technical requirements in order to do it.
You can have a bunch of certification boards that say something like, “If we can do this, we can do this.” That, of course, means that the certifying board will be required to certify something in other languages than English. However, the certification board that you get for this, is called CMA.
CMA stands for Certified Management Accountants. It is the certification of accountants that requires you to have a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting-from a technical school, and you must pass a test. There are many others that are similar, and all of them are required to have a Bachelors degree in some field in order to receive the designation.
