    How's the demand of this cert like in the US, Pat? Opens more doors I guess?

    It's up there for sure. I would say more than 90% of portfolio, program, and project management positions require the PMP.

    How are you all progressing with your certification/degree goals and what does 2012 hold for you?

    - r2s
    2011(Accomplished):
    Security+
    ITILv3
    CISSP
    CCNA
    CCNA:Security

    2011 (Planned):
    C|EH (WGU)
    CCNP:Security (at least start on it)

    2012 (Planned):
    C|HFI (WGU)
    EDRP (WGU)
    G2700 (WGU)
    CCNP:Security (finish it)
    CCIE:Security (at least dream about it, LOL, but I couldn't take this one seriously until I complete WGU, as this school work takes up SOOOO much of my time ...even more than I spend posting here! )

    I'm not sold on maintaining the WGU certs, to be perfectly honest. I'm in it for the degree.

    Despite all sorts going off this year (job change which has finally got me using my knowledge every single day, and my band is kicking in to life too), I've remained solid on the goals. I'm about 2 months behind on when I wanted to start the CCIE Written, but that should be any day now. The only thing I need to do is find a test centre thats open nearby to take the MPLS exam (my usual one may have disappeared off the radar so this may take some work), and the CCIP is done.

    The Written may end up being done by the end of the year, or the beginning of next, depending on how much time I get to work on it. I'm hoping it does so I can get on with the fun part.

    My goal for next year? CCIE obviously. I'm optimistically hoping for an attempt next year, but it may end up pushing into 2013. We shall see.

    I recently changed jobs and now officially do network security engineering for a network security company doing network security things with security-minded people. I'm not sure if taking SANS 502 / 503 / 504 (and passing the respective exams) this year helped contribute to landing the position (probably not, to be honest), but in my new role I have no time in the foreseeable future to be doing any further certification studies. I barely even have time to crack open the pile of books laying on my desk.

    But if I had to guess what I'd want to tackle next year, it'd be:
    • CCNP Security (although I wish I could substitute IPS)
    • GAWN
    • CCNP

    While I have others on my list, my efforts beyond these would be much better served reading my collection of infosec books and experimenting with protocol behavior at home.

    Well I am aiming to finish my A.A.S Degree in May. I am also looking at refreshing my knowledge of the CCNA over winter break and taking the test. Other than that the new job will keep me busy and I won't have time for anything else except perhaps for a couple of MS certs.

    Seems a bit early to be thinking about 2012

    But..

    CCIP - Finish this in 2011.
    CCDP - 2012
    CCNP Security - 2012
    ITILv3 - 2012 to break up the Cisco stuff.

    Should keep me more then busy till 2013.

    For 2011: I did complete my MCSE (in May 2011) and acquired my Sec+ before 2011. Did not acquire my MCSE: Sec because of employment and other issues but I will get there. Also I mentioned I would tackle 2008 track exams...did not begin that so I need to get crackin on that

    For 2012: I am going to say this time perhaps have completed some Windows 7 exams (680 and another one for Enterprise Desktop cert) and continue onto get my SA. A long shot would be start studying for a Cisco cert but I dont even know where to begin (going the Security route meaning).

    We'll see how it plays out

    Those two (MCSE, CCNA) would really boost up your resume and give you a strong understanding of Cisco and MS technologies. Good luck!

    2011 - Got my CCENT/CCNA.

    Plans for 2012 are to obtain my CCNP. I will probably slow down a bit after that and check out CCNA:Sec, CCNA:V, and CCDA. After that, I'll figure out what track I'd actually like to go down. I know that CCIP interests me quite a bit as well, but if I did that, I wouldn't want to take time off to backtrack to security/voice/ccda.

    We will see how it goes, it's all up to the wife and the kiddo's. I have nothing but time, CCNP is priority though. I need to renew my Sec+ and Net+ eventhough I have the lifetime certs, I'd like to stay current.

    CCNA

    2012
    RHCSA (possibly RHCE)
    Sec+
    ITILv3

    So far in 2011:
    A+
    Network + (by mid-December, through school)

    Planned for 2012(1st half):
    CCENT
    Security +
    Starting on MS stuff

    I'll evaluate where I'm at by the end of the 1st half and go from there for the 2nd half of the year.

    Still kind of early to say.
    2011- Planned
    Finish MCITP:EA and WGU (done)
    CCNA (feel ready for test but keep having schedule conflicts, had to reschedule recently as had a job interview come up)

    2012
    Definitely pursuing Exchange cert
    Maybe a CCNP (not sure, didn't really catch Cisco bug though it's kind of interesting)
    Try to get the VCP5 (they'll probably have 6 by the time I get to it)
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    For 2012 I'll knock out CCNA and likely CCNA:S. Then it'd be a toss up between either a systems cert (MCITP:SA/RHCSA) or deeper into networking (emphasis on Juniper, BGP, MPLS, QoS).

    since there is still a lot of time in 2011 , and I have been buys lately on certs, I also have a microsoft voucher that expires in December, so I was thinking of either the 70-640(s) or the 70-680 (s) and that should be done by fist week in November, then on to CCNA renewal (might do the icnd 1 and 2 route). I should have those done by the end of the year.

    1st quarter of 12 is CISSP... no way around it, i have been studying and putting it off this entire year. I want to have it done by April 1... After that I will finish the MCITP for 2008 and for win 7... after that i was thinking of ccnp and then once i am done in late summer either PMP or cwna and cwsp (i have a non expiring voucher for cwsp)....

    Default I'm Back.....

    Hello everyone, been away for awhile. Promotion and projects have taken up most of my time, but now I am able to get back on the cert track.

    2011:
    scramble to finish 70-294 and 70-297 to finish MCSE
    Start WGU

    2012:
    WGU
    CCNA
    PMP


    Someone asked about the PMP cert. in one of the replies. The last I researched, the average increase in salary is about $10k, but could be based on if you change jobs. Not bad for one cert. After starting to read the PMP prep book, obtaining the hours for the cert and then staying awake while reading the material is a challenge. I can say though, that I wish I would have had this cert prior to the last project I completed, moving our HQ office. That project must have aged me 5 years and this would have saved me quite a bit frustration.

    Glad to be back, seeing some of the usuals still here, and good luck everyone on your mission!

    2011:
    A+ and Network+
    I'd like to knock out the 70-642 before the end of the year, at the same time, I'd like to read through all the MCITP material before attempting to cram for a test.

    2012:
    MCITP: EA for sure, I'd love to have this level of Knowledge for work.
    Security+, I've read all the material and I'd love to knock it out but I want more new knowledge instead of test cramming. Plus I realized that if I don't "need" the paper cert for my current job, I can wait and knock it out late next year to extend the C.E credits for my A+ and Network+ certs. Seems like it be a better of use of my resources.

    I have been toying with the idea of certs but really see that I need them to get my foot into the door for an actual IT role, therfore I have been/will be doing the following:

    2011:

    A+

    2012:

    CCNA (by end of Summer)
    Windows 7 (by December)
    Possibly Linux+/Security+ between Summer and end of the year

    Only thing I knocked out this year was CCNA: Voice and that was way back in January. I'm prepping for the CCNP: Voice now; I've never had a harder time figuring out what material I need to study for a test. Gonna probably have to cough up 1k-3k since most of the Cisco equipment I used for the CCNA: Voice before the big change aren't able to use a lot of the cool new 8.x features I'm sure to be tested on. I'm going to try and borrow as much as I can from work though

    2012 - Hopefully the JNCIE-SEC (and JNCIP-SEC if I don't get it this year)
    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?
