    Hi people,

    Just registered as I'm trying to decide what do do career wise. I worked in IT a few years ago and want to get back in, so doing some certs is something I want to start. My long term aim is to work as a DBA, and I'm looking for a relatively cheap route in. I've worked with DB2 databases and have rusty SQL from my AS400 days as a starting point...

    any advice or suggestiond are very welcome

    I better sort out a sig file.

    C

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    If you're looking to getting a entry level DBA cert, then I would say look at MySQL Associate (CMA) cert and then build on that. Or even study for a DB2 certification, IBM even offer free self-study modules, as you have some experience with that.

    While I would recommend the MS route (mainly because I'm a MS kinda guy :) ), the MCITP: DBA certs states:
