    non technical courses

    I'm banging my way through My Mcsa/se and twiddling with CCNA. Are there any other certs out there that you guys have or that you think employers would like?

    I've had a quick look at the ITIL stuff but wonder if thats a little above a simple tech in a small school.

    You could look at membership of the BCS - nice to have more post-nominal letters!

    Re: non technical courses

    There is a really good forum that can give you advice on what ITIL involves.

    Pop over to www.certforums.co.uk and have a look around. It is not specifically designed for school techies / NMs but a number of members are (senior mod is our very own simongrahamuk).

    Let us know what route you decide to go and reasons why too.

    It's not post-nominals or a certificate or training as such but you could join the IET as something to put down on your CV to show that you've got a personal interest in keeping up to date in the world of Technology. I'm a member, i get a nice studenty discount and some nice magazines in the post with some interesting developments in comms engineering (something i'm interested in obviously).

    IET is quite engineering / technology based as opposed to computery...so it depends what side of computing/tech you're into i suppose.
