I've been out of IT for about three years. Haven't done much work since suffering a stroke in late 2015. Was in IT for over 20 years before that, and I am trying to get back into it, at least part-time if nothing else. I picked up my A+ in 1998, my Network+ in 2005, and MCDST (XP) in 2008. What would be the next certification i may want to shoot for? I'm not sure about Security+ or even a CCENT or CCNA. What's next???

    In my opinion:

    Networking field = CCENT/CCNA
    SysAdmin = MCSA Server 2016
    Security = Security+

    You may even want to think about Linux+ or Red Hat.

    I am thinking either Windows 10 or Security+. Not sure about CCENT/CCNA. I was more help desk and a PC tech when I worked.
