Videographer License or Certification?

Hello Group,

I was just wondering if there's such thing as a Videographer's License or Certification?
If there is one what's the training involved and what test need to be taken to receive certification and/or license.

Just wondering ;)

There are quite a few institutions that offer either a one year certification program or two year associate programs. As Don points out degree or certificate won't get you any jobs. However, as Don points out a degree or certificate won't get you any jobs. However, a killer demo reel will.
