1) For seasoned web developers/designers, are any of you "certified" by any accredited university/firm/whatever. I happened to come across this link: http://www.joinwow.org and it got me wondering if something like that would be worth my while.
I'll be graduating college soon and I really have no idea how to make my life in the world that is web design/development. Would something like this help me get a job?
2) Anyone WOW certified or know anything about it? Just looking for some more information on it.
As an instructor, I can tell you there are things in a classroom you can learn easier and faster than learning it on your own. In most cases, however due to when classes are offered at a school or a website, it may not fit for your life.
If you want to be useful in your local job market, I suggest this... Call around or look in the paper for what local companies are looking for! from there you can sharpen or add to your skills.
I would hate to see you spend the money and not have a marketable trade to use in your area.
Just talking about the calssroom statement pete mentioned and though I would put my cent and a half in... I learned vb in the class room and am learning java there, but I found that moving from vb to asp.net was more fun to do at home because I moved at my own pace...
