Google is offering certification to IT professionals who can show their skills in flogging, installing and maintaining the search giant's online applications.
First out of the blocks is the Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialist badge for people who can move data to, configure and deploy Google Apps.
The search and advertising giant reckons three million companies are now using its applications. Google has 2,500 authorised resellers, twice last year's total, in 70 countries.
The certificate is available following an online test. So far it is only available in English, but other languages are coming soon.
