    Updated, and added various associations and organizations that offer certification/education discounts and trainings. If anyone else has any to add let me know! ...still debating on putting HDI on or not.

    Might as well (are there discounts/free HDI training and/or certs)?

    Kind of, its all very pricey and I am not sure a cost/benefit analysis would make it worthwhile to have their certs. Added nonetheless!

    The next piece I would like to add is which vendors accept third party certifications to meet the requirements towards satisfying one of their certifications or credentials. Off the top of my head I now quite a few vendors accept Microsofts MCT/MCSE, Cisco's CCNA, and CompTIA's A+/Net+/Sec+. Does anyone have any information to share on it?

    Oracle Linux Certified Administrator, Certification Path 2 - LPI, Linux+, Ubuntu, Red Hat, or Novell Certified fulfills the first test requirement. Just take/pass the 1Z0-403 exam.

    It looks like Oracle has retired that path. =( Added CIW & Linux+ 5-in-1 though.

    VMware has changed their VCA exam in that you do not have to wait a week after failing it to retake. Also their 50% off promotion expires at the end of this month, so starting Dec. 1st it will be $120, or $60 with the GKN discount code.

    Also added Apple associate exams ($65 and taken from home with free training).

    Passed the Solarwinds SCP today. Only got 79%. It was harder than I expected. I haven't used the SW in over a year and it showed. I did the worst on the SW sections. Still a good networking test.

    Thanks tprice5. I dont have an option to edit the first post... I'm not sure if I hit an arbitrary ceiling on edits, as I have the option to edit other posts of mine in this thread. I'll continue tinkering with it and see if I can get it changed.

    For Everyone Else:

    Microsoft Virtual Academy is the URL to request a free voucher for the 74-409 Beta Exam. It's first come first serve, with a finite amount of exams. Just because you receive a voucher doesnt mean you will be able to sit the exam, so schedule it as quickly as possible!

    I am sure we'll have an answer from mods here a in bit.
