What is an Apple Certified Macintosh Technician?

According to Wikipedia: Apple certification programs are IT professional certifications for Apple Inc. products. They are designed to create a high level of technical proficiency among Macintosh service technicians, help desk support, technical support, system administrators, and professional users. Apple certification exams are offered at Prometric testing centers and Apple Authorized Training Centers, as well as online through Pearson Vue. We are proud to have an in-house Apple Certified Macintosh Technician in our Company. Because getting Apple Certified is not easy to begin with, if you are certified allow you to repair any Apple Mac Computer and you will know the Apple Mac from inside out. So, if you need service, repair or maintenance for your Apple Mac Computer trust none that’s not Apple Certified Macintosh Technician.
I am already ACMT certified. Do I need to take the new ACMT 2015 exams? No, you do not.  If you are currently certified for the Mac products you need to repair, no new exams are required. So that means, if you are ACMT you are for life.
