Time to stop the gravy train

Each country's national certifications from schools, colleges and universities last a lifetime, so why should technology certifications be any different ?

The only reason expiry dates exist is to generate a constant income stream for the company, but this is counter-productive since nobody in their right mind would do x courses that need renewing every couple of years. The individuals wouldn't want to commit that amount of personal money and the companies they work for will not spend that amount of money unless there was a guaranteed way to make significantly more money from their spend.

As we all know, experience beats certification hands down each and every time.
