    Arroryn we're all dooooooomed

    This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it seems to have the most "popular" certs, with links to the vendor website for more information.


    At a glance, the most notable missing ones for me are MCSA and MCDST (so links added!)
    Certifications: A+, N+, MCDST, 70-410, 70-411

    Considering that:

    on top of the page, it actually misses the Security+...

    Yeah, I agree as they have the Canadian version on there, the ISP.

    The site must a very old as they still mention: MCSE+I, MCP+I and MCP+SB

    See here.

    Apart from that, good find. There are alot of certs that I've never heard of or seen before :)

    Certifications: CITP, PGDip, BSc, HNC, LCGI, PTLLS, MCT, MCITP, MCTS, MCSE, MCSA:M, MCSA, MCDST, MCP, MTA, MCAS, MOS (Master), A+, N+, S+, ACA, VCA, etc... & 2nd Degree Black Belt

    Loads of Sun, Oracle and IBM certs missing as well as a lot of smaller vendors. Its a constantly changing ecosystem, makes it difficult for employers, hence I'd reccomend traditional education over certs in general.
    Certifications: CITP, BSc, HND, SCJP, SCJD, SCWCD, SCBCD, SCEA, N+, Sec+, Proj+, Server+, Linux+, MCTS, MCPD, MCSA, MCITP, CCDH

    The site looks to have been last updated in around 2000 as that's the date on the copyright notice at the bottom. The links that go to MCSE for example now get redirected to the MS learning portal (as I assume those pages don't exist anymore).
    Certifications: A+ | Network+ | Security+ | MCP (270,271,272,290,620) | MCDST | MCTS:Vista

    I'm pinning this thread (and gosh, the list of pinned threads in this forum is getting long) because I think it answers a lot of questions for new members who ask, "what certification should I get to have a good career in IT?" Lots and lots of people still thing the MCSE is the only way to go and just about the only cert besides a few from CompTIA and the CCNA. The list provided in this thread will add some much needed perspective. Thanks, Arroryn.
    Certifications: A+ and Network+

    if you take a look at the following link,


    you can see a nice certification road-map detailing how the certifications link together and what job roles they lead too. It's a great doc, but probably will needs some updating - i may start up a new thread about updating it as I have a few contacts at CompTIA and could probably get them to redo it - if you want me to do this then please let me know ;-)
