    2013 was an interesting year for me career and family wise. Based on these circumstances, I felt I met my objectives and am on track for my future plans. This was the 'year of projects' at work so I got a later start than I anticipated. Also, I promised myself that I would not schedule any exams 4th quarter of the year because of my newborn and to mitigate stress during the holidays with trying to finish exams. Unless I have to, this is my new rule moving forward.

    2013 Goals (shortened time frame):

    -CCNA - Complete


    2014 Goals:
    -Complete JNCIA-Junos
    -Start CCNP (ROUTE and/or SWITCH)
    -Complete CCNA: Security

    @Nova- Well judging from your cert list and location you could be an IA/IAM/Pen Test for the DoD or Contractor...depends on if you're looking to grow those skills or just do a cert.
    ITILv3 I found enjoyable and helped me gain some understanding for IT from the perspective of business. It was a nice laid back one and I learned some neat things, doesn't have much to do with your current certs or would benefit you professionally probably, but it's a thought.
    If you do anything with networking/Firewalls, maybe a CCNA/CCNA Security?
    There's always SANS certifications/training that are relevant to that side of things too...GSEC/GPEN, etc.
    Maybe if there's a place you've always wanted to work, you could look for jobs there and see what certs/skills they want their potential employees to have.
    Or you could spend some time and spruce up the ole resume, dust of the cobwebs, get it looking shiny and etc...

    My biggest 2014 target is fatherhood.

    On the cert front, I might work on another VCAP, the DTA, (after I finish off this sinister creature - the DCD). I am considering upgrading to the MCSE: SI too. Just to keep myself updated, there is really no need. I intend to work on labbing up Hyper-v too, more and more jobs ask for some Hyper-v experience these days in my area.

    I also aim to become proficient in PowerShell/PowerCLI. You dont make a good engineer if you cant script, I believe. And my scripting skills suck.
    VCDX: DCV - Round 2 rescheduled (by VMware) for December 2017.

    Why not round out the skills with something like the CISA? You have management (CISSP) and pen testing (OSCP, CEH), how about adding audit and assessment? Just a thought.

    Well, as I'm in the middle of a CCIE that pretty much ties up the next 7 months

    After that? CCIE #2 of course! The hardest part is going to be deciding what one.

    Really fancy the Data Center cert as we now support lots of Nexus kit. If I were to very quickly become an expert on that then that would be rather amazing. Failing that I'd like to do Security, or Voice, or even SP.

    OK in this order of preference, I'd love to do : -

    DC, Sec, Voice.

    I wouldn't need to do SP to be honest as much as I am sure I could master it.

    2013 COMPLETED:
    1. MCITPs I started back in 2012 (Included MCSA).
    2. Knocked out the CASP as an immediate requirement for my new job (8570).
    3. Knocked out those 3 free VCAs in 2 afternoons (debating even listing those).
    4. Did all the ITIL-Foundation training at work for 4 days while waiting on accounts to be created and provisioned. Tested at home with loyalist. Employer paid me back and it took minimal effort so I figured why not.

    End of 2013 GOALS:
    1. I bought the CompTIA Server+ remote proctor pilot exam. I have to sit that before Nov. 15th. (Will post about the experience after since they claim the offer was limited to only 150 testers.)
    2. Brocade Certified Network Engineer. I want to grab this while they are still offering the free voucher. Don't judge, I'M CHEAP!
    3. Maybe the 70-410? I bought VMware lab gear to set up a windows enteprise environment. The plan is to lab through the MCSE:SI/PC (which will most definitely roll over into 2014) but my job role as SCCM administrator is requiring me to spend a lot of time studying that so hopefully squeeze the 410 in before the new year.

    2014 Goals:
    1. Finish MCSEs
    2. Hopefully my employer has provided VMware training course to make me eligible for VCP. Will certainly be playing with ESXi at home, A LOT.

    My 2013 goal was the CCNP which is already done. Next is the CCNP Security which was supposed to be the 2014 goal but it turned out that I underestimated myself again - I'm studying for FIREWALL at the moment and there isn't anything that I'm not familiar with on this exam.

    So in early 2014, I will finish my CCNP Security. Next is either CCDP or OSCP. However, if I do take on OSCP, it will be during the summer because otherwise there won't be enough time(work and school + certs has been crazy).

    Anyone planning on going for OSCP in 2014? I have been waiting for this a long time and I really hope I can start the pain sooner.

    I have some fairly difficult goals for 2014. I'll be focusing on a number of expert level certifications which means lots of late nights and endless hours of lab time!

    Goals for 2014:

    CCIE Service Provider
    CCIE Data Center
    NetApp NCIE-SAN on Clustered Data ONTAP

    If I finish 2 of the 3 I'll consider it a resounding success!

    Tech review is before panel review. Basically, they have a VCDX review your design to see if it can pass the panel review.

    I figured I would post this here to make it official, but my current goals are in my signature. I completed my CCNP this year and plan to complete the CCDA by the year's end. I hope to start on the CCDP right after the CCDA (because of my CCNP I only have 1 exam left for the CCDP). After that it's on to CCNA Security followed by CCNP Security. To all those who read my TSHOOT post, this plan has changed quite a bit. I am putting an emphasis on the Security track due to my heavy involvement with firewalls in my new position. All of this and continuing on with my Bachelor of Science in CIS. No social life for me!

    Edit:

    Forgot the VCA-DCV by year's end. It's free and my new position has me working with vCenter/vSphere. I figured it can't hurt.

    Hey MoP, I would like to get started on OSCP next year but it wouldn't be till late Q4 2014. My employer is sending me to SANS again so i'll be getting the GPEN by Q2 and then CCNA and CCNA Security through WGU. I think this would be a good lead up to OSCP.

    Starting WGU Nov 1st so will get the associated Certs in 2014 (hopefully!).

    Other than that, does Certificate of Marriage count? I'm told that is a tough Cert to study for

    Default 2014 Goals

    I will be taking the Network+ exam next week, but I am pretty confident that I will pass. I will be able to dedicate the entire year of 2014 to completing certificates, so I am very excited! The certifications I would like to achieve by the end of next year are as follows:

    ICND2
    CCNA Security
    CCNA Voice
    CEH v8
    CASP
    CAPM

    I would love to be able to add more to this list if there is time, but if not, then this list will fill out my after Army resume.

    Also, is there a recommended Windows certification that I should take if I have 0 experience with the user and server side of IT? My job involves in implementing the WAN with routers, switches, and firewalls, but I am definitely lacking on the system side of the house. Thanks!

    I think I will most likely be able to squash the CCNA DC by the of this year ...seems real easy. So then for 2014 ill aim for CCNP DC and if I get that done I will look towards starting to study for CCIE RS written

    I'm looking to take the 2nd exam for the Linux+ / LPIC-1 in the next 2 weeks so once that's out of the way then it'll be time to finish the MCSA on 2008. That should take me a decent ways into 2014. After that, I'm not sure if I want to aim for MCSE Server Infrastructure or VCP. EIther way, I'll be busy.
