    Hi All

    Posted earlier about the entry level VMware certs that you can get, which got me wondering what other vendors have. Very impressed with the entry level offerings from Microsoft here

    I was also impressed that these included things like Java and Python. Are any of you looking to get into IT or start your IT Certification journey? There's definitely tons more choice than when I started in 2009! Back then it was MCP, A+ N+ for people starting out. I remember tackling my MCSA 2003 a bit too soon and crashing and burning on two occasions, the dreaded 70-291, and a few of my buddies having murder with 70-290 the 2003 Server OS exam.

    Thanks
    Jim

    Must admit I do like the new format of the MS certs – especially if time is at a premium and you can then select some stand-alone certs without the old school MCSA\E which was hard slog even for an experienced IT pro.

    Absolutely yeah. It felt like a never ending story back in the day didn’t it. 8 exams I did for my MCSE: Security
