2014 Certfication Plans



  • GeekTechieGeekTechie Member Posts: 38 ■■□□□□□□□□
    Here's mine:

    A+ (Starting point of breaking into the field, getting first IT job as help desk support)
    Networking+ (Will start on this one after getting A+ certified)

    Beyond Networking+, I'm going on the Cisco path with the CCNA R&S and go from here with the Cisco certifications since I'm interested in being a Network Administrator someday working with Cisco gear.

    go in for my CCIE lab exam in less than a month: that's it
  • Chivalry1Chivalry1 Member Posts: 569
    On my list for this year was ITIL v3 Foundation Certification. I completed that certification last month.

    I have had my eye on Red Hat Certification for some time now. So that maybe whats next. Thats all for 2014 I think, unless the job forces me to get some other certification.

    4. Get that CS degree rolling again!

    February-CCNP Firewall
    March-CCNP VPN

    I'll wait for the new CCNP Security books to hit first before I make an attempt to test the last 2 exams to complete the CCNP-Security. After this I'll consider myself done with certifications for some time.

    Got back on track during 2013 knocking out a few exams to obtain MCSE: 2012 Server Infra.

    My goal for 2014 is VCP5-DCV and then on to VCP5-DT.

    I should be starting the Stanly class in a few months and have been eagerly playing with a lab I setup at work in preparation for a small VDI deployment and to practice with features my clients don't require in production.
    Courses Left for WGU BS - IT: NA:

    On to VCAP!

    My plans are such (in order of priority):

    CCENT for sure, possibly CCNA
    CCNA Security

    My add more later. Since I have no certifications at all right now (just 20+ years of self-taught experience), adding even one or two of these would be a big boost for me.
