Test Day – My view on Industry Certifications

Update: Passed the exam this morning.  MCSA: Windows 2012 Server

I finally scheduled Microsoft 70-417 Windows 2012 Upgrade exam for tomorrow.  Am I nervous? Not really.  I have lost count of how many exams I have written over the years.  Do I still believe in industry certifications after all these years? Yes, I really do. As an IT professional it’s imperative that we keep up with today’s quickly changing technologies.  Writing exams forces us to learn what is new and exciting.  Should your IT professional be certified? Yes!  I know some people will argue it’s only a paper exam but at the very least the exam taker has had to review the new material.  Would you want your vehicle technician to only have skills that date back 10 years? Probably not.  It’s the same with your servers.  You wouldn’t want an IT professional who has a 10 year old skill set working on your 2012 server.

Back to the books for some last minute cramming this evening.
