    I know certs seem to go with your job (well they supposed to) but i cant help but wonder, what certs you guys out there are looking at to do in the near future anything different from the normal MCSE's and CCNA's and the entry-level certs (A+ and N+)

    I know we have two guys going for LPI certs anyone doing anything like a CCDA or RHCE or Server+???

    Personally im looking at Linux+ and when i get MCSA possibly the Security exams from MS. I would like to get into Cisco but i feel getting certified with me still being in a support role wouldnt be much as i dont have much networking experience!

    What does everyone else have in mind? 8)

    I have penciled in (rather lightly) INet+, Security+ and Server+.

    *If* I do all those I might then look at some M$ certs like the desktop one.

    For me it isn't set in stone as my company isn't expecting me to get any certs, so I can pick and choose.

    think im looking at Net+ followed by Security+, MCDST, MSCE, and then maybe a Linux cert of some kind...

    Depends really on money and availability of help for studies.... and if i get job in mean time.

    I'm slowly studying for the CCDA (the design version of the CCNA). As well as the 2 upgrade exams for the MCSE. If I have enough time this year, maybe a fourth one maybe the Wireless# or the CWNA. But I'll have to see how motivated I am :D

    But then again, this is linked to the jobs that we have to do. As well as maintaining, and extending our Win2k/2k3 enviornment, we are planning to implement a wireless network.

    It all depends on what job I get.

    I'm now in need of a job, but it looks like I'll be applying for helpdesk jobs, as most others need more 'experience.'

    My Network + is definately next, within a couple of weeks. (Fingers crossed for one of those getcertified4less early expiry vouchers :) )

    Then after that, should also definately be the 70-290, 70-291.

    But after that, who knows. Maybe the MCSE, maybe the CCNA. But Certs are like pringles . . . no, not round and crunchy . . . once you pop, you just can't stop. :biggrin
