    Many colleges have certificate programs in AI now too. It reminds me of all the certificate and Masters degree programs in Digital Forensics that appeared around 2009-2011. I think there was some of that for Blockchain as well. Whatever get the schools admissions, I guess.

    There's quite a bit of marketing around the need for AI knowledge and skills for workers to remain useful in their (future) careers. I think this is like advising workers who drive vehicles for a living that they need to understand automobile design and mechanics. We (the workers) will need to know how to communicate with AI (prompting) to do our jobs, but should never need to know how it works to do our job unless we are working directly to improve AI itself.

    An interesting read: AI is Mostly Prompting

    In fairness, this is how I feel about most certifications, too. The training is fine, I get that. It's generally product/platform specific and make sense that any and all organizations ride the AI bandwagon, but given how relatively immature this is, and how quickly things are changing in this space, I have to wonder if any of these certifications are really worth it, or just opportunistic on the part of the vendors.

    I do think CompTIA is on to something, and if they can continuously update and improve it will be a worth-while stream.

    In a word:
    SCAM.

    In many words:
    Most likely NOT worth the Dollar COST of the degree.

    Immature and fast-changing certainly describes where "AI" is at right now. It's amazing how things have changed just over the past year. I won't look at any AI article/podcast or YT video that's over six months old. Businesses are being forced to either market their goods and services in terms of AI-as-a-feature or be perceived as having fallen behind in a significant tech trend. At this rate, AI certs will need revising every 12-18 months. The certificate programs at universities will need constant revising too.

    When will we reach "peak AI" and this whole "the next new thing" will begin to slow down?

    There is also ISO 42001 for risk/compliance folks. Have heard pretty much the same as ISO 27001 in terms of process and robustness.

    AWS, Azure, GCP, ISC2, GIAC, ISACA, TOGAF, SABSA, EC-Council, Comptia...
