I just set up my training (IT Training) schedule for the rest of the fiscal year. It’s gonna be a tough one. My brain is going to be exhausted by the end of summer. But at least I’ll be a Cert-a-Fried SupaGeek™.
I’m studying for the Network+ certification exam that I want to pass within 2-3 weeks.
I have a CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) BootCamp in Chicago May 23-27, so I should have my CCNA certification by the late-May/early-June. The Network+ certification will help me prep for this.
THEN I have a a Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) BootCamp June 12-20. That one’s gonna be tough… not only are Microsoft exams tough, the BootCamp runs a minimum of 12 hours a day for 9 days. However, if all goes well, I should walk away with 3 more certifications from there… Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP), Security+ (to show I’m a security wienie, not just vendor specific), and MSCA: Security.
As I was turning in my last request for training, The Boss asked me if I was trying to push the training through so quickly because he may or may not be leaving. LOL. I had to explain that it was all planned but I was just waiting for the snow to melt before I started traveling.
