I am glad that innovations made in green technologies. iGo have made a very good innovation in green technology. I recently came across the energy efficient lighting system which uses Flo lighting concept. This concept allows users to mix high-intensity bright light with warmer, less electricity-intensive light, the way we would mix the water in the shower. These type of innovations are really very useful to save our mother nature.

Yes... yes it is.

Fat, i've yet to see anyone ask for this cert. But it certainly wouldn't HURT you to have it on your resume.
