    I'm planning on getting the MCSA finished up for my Server 2012 studies by April. I have the 410 scheduled for the end of this month, then I hope to ramp up the studies after that. Then I was thinking of a Linux cert, maybe something with Red Hat. Then I'm planning to knock out Security+ and hopefully get a bit more involved with the security side of things. Guess it's a popular topic.

    In all seriousness, this upcoming year I plan on figuring out ways to make more time for studying. I need to do both certs and some academic book-hopping, so it'll be increasingly important for me to find the time every day, every week, every month, if I'm going to hit any of these long-standing goals. . . let alone new goals on the horizon. Small course-corrections, one step at a time, that's the real goal.
    My biggest hurdle is just finding the time to not burn out on work/studying. Between the 8-9 hours a day doing the System/Network/Phone Admin then 3 days of an hour of Krav a week (which still isn't enough working out to counter my garbage eating) and another day of driving 2 hours each way to St. Louis for hockey...i feel like by the time I can sit down to study I'm so worn out from everything else that I just get distracted.

    I've been trying to do my listening to CBT Nuggets at work, then that way I'm getting excited about trying out the new stuff when I get home to my lab. Granted, that all depends on e-mail/phone calls not disrupting the process.

    CCNP is still on my list for 2016, though I have taken a break from Cisco. Currently hoping to knock out the JNCIA in January, then probably back to the Cisco track.

    Meh....I'm not good with reaching publicly stated goals, even if they are SMART. But, since everyone else is doing it...

    MCSA 2012
    Linux+

    If timing works out (and work pays )
    ACMA or CWNA
    CTT+

    Completed my 2015 goal:
    1. CISM
    2. Mobility+
    3. SABSA Foundation

    2016 will be dedicated to:
    1. CCSK (It will help as moral booster, easy and first cert of 2016 and will help in prep of CCSP as well)
    2. CCSP (was waiting for it, really excited about this cert)
    3. SABSA Practitioner (Risk and Assurance)

    4. CISSP- maybe, I dont see much value in CISSP and since I now have CISM its an overlap, its still the most famous infosec cert though, magnet for recruiters.
    Job listings usually mention "CISSP/CISM" unless its a network security job role which wont mention CISM or its a IT Security Manager kinda role which might omit CISSP.

    I have 10+ years of Infosec experience. I learned a lot after reading CISM manual. I have skimmed through CISSP material and its seems like there is no depth in any domain. Might just read Conrad's 11th Hour book and sit for exam...

    I've got to finish up my MSISA from WGU at some point this year so there's that. Next will be another Cisco cert to renew my CCNAs - I'll decide which one later, but I'm strongly considering trying for one of the NP Security exams, or alternatively SWITCH.

    Change of plans! I will keep the CCNP:R&S, but instead further my MCSA to an MCSE. I will also try to get the VMware delta exam in there, probably towards the end of 2016.

    So I am going to make the plunge and pick up some Cisco gear and start labbing for the CCENT, CCNA, and CCNA Security.
    I don't think picking up the is too much of a stretch to get by the end of the year. I may put the CISSP on the back burner for now.

    Default Wishful thinking

    Net+ (just because I'm positive I could easily pass it and it would compliment my Sec+)
    CASP
    CEH (if this whole v8/v9 issue gets cleared up)



    VERY wishful thinking for 2016:
    CISSP
