    Default strata+

    i was on the comptia site and saw a section called strata

    has any one taken them or are they even worth the time

    CompTIA Strata IT Fundamentals Exam

    it looks like an a+ cert that does not have to be re-newed every 3 years

    At some point I want to get away from some of the technical exams and do some non tech exams for fun. I think this might be one I do just for the extra "Green IT" knowledge.

    99$ is not cheap, Microsoft exams cost 125$

    if it was 30-50 $ may be I would try, but for 99$ I do not think so.

    I actually meant more around the difficulty of the CIW foundations. The CIW foundations is much more broad.

    I could see myself doing the Green IT, but at this point I just want to get away from CompTIA.
    I'm actually thinking of the new Linux+ where you do the 2 LPIC tests. I have been working on that already and figure with less than a month of study on that by itself I'd be ready for Lpic-1. Something else on my to-do list for after I'm done with WGU.

    Well, for me it's all about whether or not CompTIA decides to make them expire or not. Yes, LPIC certifications interest me as well.

    i think the only ones that comptia are putting up for expiration are the ones DoD uses for the contractors they use

    so far the only ones ive heard about expiration are A+, Network+, Security+

    now i know they are phasing out Linux+ in-favor of the 2 part LPIC tests

    For this year it is just A+, Net+, and Sec+. But who knows if maybe the rest of them will have similar standards in the future.

    Agreed, I might go for the Linux+ some day down the road……… right now it’s windows 7 70-680(currently studying for this one), then the 70.685, or 70-686, and then Cisco OR the Microsoft server certs.
    There are no books for the strata exam…….at least as far as I know. So , I don’t think I would learn that much from studying and taking the exam. Right now I don’t see much ROI in the other Comptia certs beyond the A+, net+, and Security+.

    Is this exam for a certification or certificate? Comptia keeps calling it a certificate…maybe that’s the same thing?

    I asked the people who pay for our certifications if they would provide funding for the strata exams and they informed me that they would not because it was a certificate not certification!

    Fwiw...

    I really wanted the green!

    Hello All,

    I took the CompTIA Strata IT Fundamental exam and passed it.

    I did not study I did not prepare or anything at all. I took it on the fly and this was such an easy exam.

    I have my A+, Net+ and Sec+ already so maybe that helped or maybe my 7+ years in IT helped but that was a very easy test.

    I am going to take the Green IT exam this week coming up and the IT for sales all in the same week.

    I would say wish me luck but I am well prepared and there for no luck is needed.

    Sounds pretty cake.

    Thanks for the write up.

    I am not sure I should get this though. I already have a ton of certifications and I am afraid my resume is starting to look sloppy.

    The only "certification" you should work on now is the "Masters of Science in Management" cert or perhaps the "Masters of Business Administration with an IT/ERP management focus" cert from a decent school.

    Now that you're in management...if you're gonna spend any time studying...it should be for a Masters. You made it, kid.

    Haha

    Anything of short of being complete incompetent, I should be able to make it through 3 years of the project.

    I hope to get my Masters in Management. I don't really feel the extra 4-5 classes for the MBA will help me that much more. Now the ERP specific one I would do. Point me in the right direction!!!!!!

    The only certification that I want to look at now is possibly the PMP or Six Sigma. Process and Framework related certifications.

    It sure makes a difference, not only from a skills level, but also from a salary standpoint. Being a manager, I use the concepts learned in the MBA program on a daily basis.

    As long as it's one of those, that's what you need to shoot for.

    I don't know any good ERP specific MBAs as of yet. Right now my research for a Masters is still in the early stages of the first trimester...and will stay there for quite sometime. I am still debating whether or not to do an online program at an established B&M or brick and mortar (offline to local universities). I'm close to graduating from WGU and then I have to decide on other things as well.

    However, since you already have your Bachelors, you're much more ahead of the game then I am. A Masters will pretty much give you uber street-cred with your soon-to-be lengthy management experience. But start looking into a good program you want now.

    Pak thanks for the heads up brother! I appreciate your expert opinion.

    Your opinion careers a lot of weight with me. MBA has been duly noted.
