University computer science and software engineering curricula are oriented to conventional hardware platforms. This presents an obstacle to teaching students how to develop software for mobile devices. Industry certification practices provide an insight into what is important in teaching software development for a particular class of mobile devices, cellular phones. Adapting such practices to classroom use can aid in bridging the learning gap between traditional and non-traditional platforms.
