Training / Qualifications
I'm in the middle of reading the suggested threads that came up in the search, but thought i'd jot down my ideas anyway as i've meant to post all week.
It looks like i will eventually be getting some training and it's pretty much up to me what i can get.
I've been in the job for 3 years and had no training and only have my degree as a qualification.
There's a load of stuff going on at work at the moment screwing me and the rest of the team over, like holidays now have to be during school holidays, doing away with flexi and more...
Then with BSF and whatever else coming or not in 3 years time, i need to look at ripping their hand off for anything.
I need to go to my line manager with a training plan.
Basically i need to know, what i should be going for? It's been a while since i've looked at anything and what would be worth while.
My first instincts are go go for Microsoft Server quals, but i'm not totally sure how they're looked upon in the corporate world. Which ones? Would it help to do the Windows 7 qualification before picking up 2008?
While there's a lot of stuff i know about Server 2003, there's a lot i don't. What i know i've picked up from being thrown int he deep end. Of course now it'll have to be Server 2008.
Maybe Cisco quals would look better on my CV. I just don't know.
I don't really know of any other quals out there, or what prospective employers / BSF bidders would be looking for.
Then how do i do them? Intense / Online / College type course?
I'm not really a good 'reading learner', i have to get my hands dirty.
Sorry for this complete mess of a post, just jotted stuff down as i thought of it!
Any help appreciated.
