We won't finalize the final cost model until we complete the beta and finalize the entire delivery model. At this time we don't have any plans on rolling out different levels of certification. We are still exploring what other certifications may make sense as we look at Kentico V6.

Hi Thom,

would you have any idea of costs regarding certification post beta?
will there be multiple levels as per CCNA, CCNP?

Thanks - a little copy and paste issue. Went ahead and fixed it for others.
