    Hello, wizkies, and welcome :)

    I would first ask you exactly what role are you looking for? Network+ should be a good start, as would CCNA. You might also consider MCSA/MCSE for either Windows Server 2008/2012, depending on what you feel is appropriate.

    Good luck to you!

    Thanks bull313 ! I appreciate! As for now, I am looking for a certifications that I can use for the next 5 to 10 years.
    At the moment I am working on software deployment, OS deployment, software packaging. More on SCCM kind of stuffs and i like it.

    I am planning to get System Center 2012 yet I do not know if that will put me back on the road. Most of the job opening here in Singapore requires certification. They shortlist the people that had certifications most of the time.

    wizkies, I am at the same point you are career wise and I agree with bull313. I am Microsoft certified also and want more certs. I started studying for Network plus and will go from there. The new MCSA is a good place to start as well.

    How long have you been in the industry? Network+ or CCNA? most of the hiring companies now prefers CCNA holder.
