A recent poll questions asked the HEALTHCARE DESIGN readers:

Because of the economy and the cost/time associated with certification, has staff certification like LEED AP and EDAC become less important?

22.22% - Yes, certification has taken a back seat

46.67% - No, certification is more important now; a way to differentiate yourself

31.11% - It is just as important now as it ever was


- Yes absolutely; firms are not willing to spend more on certifications
