What are the benefits of participating in the network?
Participating in the ProZ.com Certified PRO Network will provide a powerful new means for top professionals to distinguish themselves as such, through not only demonstration of their unique capabilities (in keeping with published industry standards), but also through peer/client/supplier review and, perhaps soon, verified track records. In time, this network will provide an easier way for top professionals and top companies to meet and do work, particularly when that work has to be done right and is paid accordingly.
What are the requirements for getting certified?

I am very impressed with the professional approach, as well as the speed with which this initiative is progressing.
So far I'm impressed with quality and detailed level of thought and feedback people are putting in, plus the fact that people are motivated by what's good for the industry rather than their own self-interest.
What an excellent idea; I love it. I think that any initiative that helps to professionalize our job is interesting.
