    I was just wondering, about the different types of certs/quals that users of Certforums had, in regard of IT and non-IT.

    Yes, why not. Sport certs/quals normally have an aspect of team work built into them :)

    To be serious, the main aim of this poll is to see the combinations of hard skills and soft skills sets.

    As for IT certs... CompTIA and MS own my ass. :) Currently studying up on Vista for more MCP exams. Don't see myself doing any more "large" certs as I don't need most of them to run my little store now.

    I have been dabbling in A+ on and off, got to scrape the cash together for the exams, but that won't be before I've saved up for another car.

    I am due to start an Open University course in October.
