    Hi All

    I have just joined up as I am looking to further my certs/knowledge. I've been contracting for 5 years now - quite high profile clients - mainly desktop support some server admin. I am now considering doing MCSE - i've not done any A+ N+ etc

    I want to go down the management route - have PRINCE2 Practitioner and ITIL v3 Foundation -I feel that the mcse will hold me in good stead for getting in to a position where i can transfer to management eventually.


    does this sound like 'Balleracs'???

    Hi and Welcome to CF. Whilst not a management qualification, an MCSE would put you in good stead to be a technical manager. I know a few IT managers in our place hold similar qualifications. Best of luck, Jim

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    For management quals to compliment your technical skills, have you thought about the NVQ's in management, the LCGI in Management or even a p/t degree in management?

    Hi

    Thanks for the welcome messages - i forgot to mention that i have BSc Business Computing - I don't feel that a management course would be the best way to proceed, simply because with my background in IT, i have had more exposure to hands-on computing and only some management experience. Therefore i think an mcse would compliment my current skill-set, then perhaps provide a 'throughfare' in to managment (?)
