Is Mindjet providing a certification program?  I cannot seem to find a simple answer on the website.  Other firms do offer certification.

Sad to hear.  I've tried a number of ways to get an answer from Mindjet with no answer.  I think it is sad that Mindjet has not followd  through on the concept of certification.

Thanks for the update.  I can move forward from here.

I personally believe that MJ is interested in ONLY large corporate deals. They are NOT the original MJ company that wanted the world to embrace mind mapping.
when the founders left, the culture changed. I recall they did have a certification program decades ago. But Corporate sales do not seem to desire the certification. My guess is part of the enterprise sale includes some degree of training.

Of course I do not agree as I have been using and paying for MJ since they started...

Thanks for that perspective.  I too am a long time user of Mindjet.  I do think they are very much focused on large sales and enterprise situations.  Still, the loss of a certification element in their product mix is a strategic loss. 

Have a great day.

We are Mindjet MindManager certified trainer since version 2002. The latest certification we got was for MindManager 15. We got our certificates always from the German Mindjet organisation.
They seem to understand the value of certificates.
And they should, since experience shows that companies where we do an in-house training double their licenses within 2 months.

I must say however that we get more training revenue from the fact that we wrote THE Dutch language book on how to get more benefits and value out of Mindmanager, then from the certificates we have ;-)

Thanks for this update.  I am glad to hear that certification was in the mix back in 2002.  I still think Mindjet USA needs to give careful consideration to certification.
