No, I didn't screw up the subject. Novell has a new certification coming out. http://www.novell.com/training/certinfo/nce/es/index.html

There is a short article about it here: http://certcities.com/editorial/news/story.asp?EditorialsID=1273

I know a lot of MS people are worried about HR people being able to figure out the the MCITP:EA is the new version of the MCSE, and I agree. Just think how many resumes will get tossed because the resume reviewer thinks that the person made a typo on their CNE (Certified Novell Engineer).

    It's a cool cert. You get enterprise Linux for only 3 exams instead of 5 if you are a current CNE.

    I looked at this briefly a few months ago and may take it on at some point since I completed my CNE in May.

    Oh..well. I'm in after I finished my upgrade exam and other school works.

    CNE > NCE > what will be next, ENC (Enterprise Novell Certified)?

    Ha.. ha..

    I like the idea, but it will be a while before I can tackle this. I would need to re-up my CNE 5, then move forward into the NCE.
    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

    Get cracking then Pete. We can prepare for this together after the summer. Im building a Netware lab at home covering all versions.

    Let me know if anyone is also planning for NCE this summer.

    I don't see any update from Novell site yet regarding NCE. Any self-study material on the market?

    Self-study kit

    Implementing Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 for Linux (Course 3089, 1.0) = CD-ROM - Boxed Shipment - $247.50

    That's a bit of a relief. I guess Big Red N is finally figuring out that people don't want to shell out $400 for self-study kits. . .

    NCE is on my radar. The next three months Im busy concentrating on the CCIE but later in the year I intend to crank up on some overdue Linux and Unix work that has been on the backburner.

    I will buy the self study kit and work towards the NCE in parallel with SCSA/SCNA. I have worked with Solaris a good deal over the years but never had the gas freetime wise to do the certs.

    Hopefully that will change! Drop me a PM Kasor and we can discuss things.

    Don't over kill yourself.

    You need to go out and get few drinks to relax and completely shut down from "IT."

    Ha..ha.
