    Used to have both MS and Novell qualifications. Have not kept them up since Windows 2000 server and Novell 4.11. Too long in the tooth to bother these days.

    Started studying. Time + money in short supply but would love to finish it. Though with a new OS every 3 years hard to keep up.

    Paid for materials but been too busy with work and family to sit down and do it.

    I see myself as a network manager in 5 years time but need a job that will help me with experience on servers etc.

    Do you think it helps with jobs/etc? I have MCSA, MCTS, MCP & CCENT but I only find that agencies give a monkeys, some people value that you've spent your own time to do the qualifications, some don't. I do need to upgrade though to 2008 server though!

    I think the course that I went through was very benificial and having a trainee who was very knowledgeful was extremely helpfull.

    Lol... that's you and me both I started out onNovell 3 and then started on NT4 server certification and they bought out windows server 2000 so I gave up at that point it's just a merry go round I decided I dident want to be part of. I learn what I need to do my job.

    Even with all the latest certs at our age who would give us a job in the current climate?

    Speak for yourself!!

    No, I know what you mean. Hard to pretend you're dynamic when you reach this age. My qualifications were gained at my previous school and helped earn me my job here, but there comes a point when you ask why you're continuing to study and go in for exams. I put in my time learning new things, I keep current. It might be an issue if I was looking for another job, but I'm not. I also started on Novell 3, then it was 4 because of the GUI, and you had to make the step up from NT4 to 2000...frankly, there's more to life now.

    Plus, my internal hard drive is full and slow and all the defragging in the world isn't helping!

    I'm MCITP:SA and the fact I have it has landed me a few contract roles, it's nice to have on your CV and attracts interest. Been meaning to go for EA but finding the time is the problem.

    MCTIP is the cert I would go for if I was going to seek certification. In fact I have all the Microsoft study books for the exam but use them as a reference rather than for taking the exams.

    If your young and a Windows server admin this is the cert I would suggest just make sure you go for the enterprise admin MCTIP when you study rather than just the server admin.
