    I was sixteen when I took my Red Cross Professional First Aid and Professional CPR certifications, with additional water rescue training.

    Oh, then there was this one day, when I was about 20, when I went in and took my A+ Core and Software tests. It was a good day, but I never did get that raise I was promised for getting the cert.

    A+, Network+, and Server+ at 40, and Security+ at 41.

    And I'm trying to motivate my kid to get his A+ while he's still 16.
