Video Game Development Certifications
Gatlin Education offers an online video game design and development program. The program is only offered through colleges and universities so you must be a registered student to take the course. It is online and self-paced.
Technically, this is not an IT certification. It is an online program for a Bachelor of Science in Game Art and Design. The focus of this degree is on the artistic side of gaming rather than the development.
From Businessweek.com, "Ninja Theory's Mike Ball, creator of PS3 flagship title Heavenly Sword talks about skills you need to create for the new consoles."
This full online program offers multiple courses, from the most basic, to the most advanced, to help you become a skilled game developer. Software and even graphics are also available. All courses are self-paced and materials can be downloaded once you sign-up.
