Security Professional Cert

I want to take SEC+, CEH and OSCP but I need help about the sequence. Would be the sequence:
1) SEC+
2) CEH

I work with penetration testing but I need these certs.

    You cannot do this really in another sequence.
    If you pass OSCP first, you may skip other certs
    I'm just doing my job, nothing personal, sorry

    60+ certs...and I'm not counting anymore

    I notice that employers will ask for CEH but want someone with OCSP skills. OCSP is great but if you can get both even better.

    Skip security+.

    CEH (kind of like Security+ with a pentesting focus) (not very valuable to infosec pros "in the know")

    Knowing why you believe you "need" a specific cert would help people give the right advice.

    i think depends on the job itself, if management level better like CISSP, CRISC

    Do you plan to continue pentesting? If so then just go for OSCP. Someone that is already doing pentesting taking Security+ and C|EH seems like taking steps backwards, but should be very easy.

    You need to get used to providing details, understanding your needs helps with the advice. Sec+ and CEH provide little for a pen tester so what kind of role are you looking for?
