Certifications

Life gets busy, especially in the IT world. Deadlines are destroyed by that last minute project that needed to be done yesterday. Except you just heard about it 5 minutes ago…. Our priorities change as the day passes and for those of us that plan and document our days, it can get frustrating trying to stay on the schedule – even if the only schedule we have is one we create for ourselves. It’s a good thing I like this sort of environment!

It is always good to allocate time not only for continuing education but also for demonstrating what you know via certifications. This is what I have been doing this week, in addition to the usual things that keep me busy – I finished a long process and completed my MCSE-Private Cloud certification. While the test was challenging, the fact that I work with almost all of the System Center suite on a daily basis helped me through it. It also pointed out where I need to spend some time (Azure, which we don’t use since our clouds are all internal, but I’m going to learn it and see if we want to go hybrid).

This is me.
