Richard Holowczak, Director of the Subotnick Center, just told me that Reuters has revamped its "Certification" program. It is similar to what Bloomberg has with a few important differences.
- There are self-paced instruction guides for various topics
- There will be on-line tutorials and video classes on various topics
- There will be a lot of emphasis on creating spreadsheets using XMS models
- The qualifying exam will be proctored by a Reuters employee who would periodically come to campus to administer the exam.
More details should be coming soon.
