    If you don't mind me saying you seem very unsure in your chosen career. Looking back over your previous posts you seem to jump around various certs looking for an answer for what to do for the rest of your working life. You also frequently comment when you don't get replies - please, give us a chance ! Quite often I will view a post but not answer straight away.

    As you come across as so unsettled I would suggest that your best course of action is to "suck it and see" - you're in a job working with servers etc. so why not give it a year or 18 months and see how you like it. If you're under pressure from the employer then yes, by all means, sit exams if they're paying. You may decide later that you prefer particular aspects of IT and diversify off into those but at least give it time to sample the wide variety of things that are available.

    If you want to get a broad overview then you could consider entry level studies in a variety of things to give you a flavour of them e.g. ITIL Foundation, PRINCE2 Foundation or some of the ISEB exams in various areas (see here). At least that way you might be able to consider how you want your career to develop.

    Give yourself a bit of time to settle is my advice :)

    Not all views are human, some are done by web bots :rolleyes:

    First of all, what experience do you have?

    Judging by what you've described, I would say concentrate on the MCSA first of all and then see how you go, if that is your job role. However...

    Managing the servers and hardware, is it related to their systems or is it related to you giving training. If it's for their live systems, I would say still go for the MCSA. If it's for the training (eg dummy systems) then put the MCSA aside and concentrate on the Dynamics AX training, get yourself some sort of teaching/trainer qualification so that you can do that job properly. Then branch out.

    Each company is different, there are some places that ask you to sign anywhere from 0 months to 2 years to say that if you leave within that time, you will have to pay back any costs accrued by them giving you the training.

    If you have to give them a copy of your qualifications, I can't see a reason why not to (unless they are a dodgy company). I would not give them the originals though, as they are yours.
