Why is that good?

I don’t see why you think that’s a good thing or even relevant? For a start if you want to be CHECK qualified and therefore unlock career progression and more money in most firms in the UK you have to have some kind of qualification.

I just find it weird in infosec that everyone wears having no qualifications as a badge of pride. It’s like a surgeon going, I have nothing to show I can do this, but trust me I can do brain surgery with the best of them.

It should be a non issue, some people do certs, some don’t, but why it has to be a w**ly waving contest between the two is beyond me.
