  • Question

  • Good morning everyone.

    My company is gracious enough to provide paid certification training and I've been asked if i would be interested in attaining certs.  Of course i am very interested.

    I have no certifications beyond a pretty much useless pc repair diploma from a distance education class I did online.  Everything I've learnt has been either through informal training by certified people or by trial and error (a lot of error)  My supervisor has suggested i look into the MCITP certification.  while i do agree it is a nice cert to have im wondering if it is ideal.  Here is what i am currently doing as far as work.

    I am currently in charge of image/deployments  I've used SCCM 07 (unsuccessfully) and MDT 2010 (successfully)  and i am really enjoying this.  I like the deployment imaging aspect.  I would like this to be my "field"  so i ask you all.  what certifications would benefit me most in the deployment/imaging area??

    thank you.

  • I think career wise it would behoove you to get your MCITP: EA. I realize that will be replaced with the MCSE sometime in 2013 but server 2012 isn't even out yet.

    If you are deploying images / updates via SCCM i would also suggest looking into an SCCM certification. From what i've been told those are highly touted right now.
