2014 Goals

Wow, 2013 has come and literally rushed past us quicker than I can express.  With time running away as it has been, I can only hope that a few of these last few moments linger for quality enjoyment.

I was able to learn several aspects of customer service and add them to the arsenal that I can now claim on my belt loop . . . if I may ever do so with out the extreme wrath of my previous employer.  I plan on going into my life skills, progress and learning in the very near future, along with my complaints!!!!!  I am eager to use radical and immediate goals to get my arsenal progressing in a manner that I would like.

Training and certification for 2014:

  • CompTIA Security + CERTIFIED as of April 2014
  • (ISC)2: CISSP ~ Certified Information Systems Security Professional pushed to 2016
  • PMP for PMI ~ Project Management Professional through Project Management Institute pushed to 2017

As with these and all other forms of certification I also look at taking on tasks that deal with SQL 2012, a private intranet style wiki-style-database that will eventually/drastically provide a consistent avenue of information and platform that I look forward daily to.

Here is my resting place for the near future and beyond . . . MORE TO COME SOON!!!!  GETTING LATE AND I’M  TIRED!!!




Certification Corner

Today I began what I hope will be the beginning of a very successful IT certification discussion group with where I am employed, expressing this.

This is a discussion group for anyone who has/is/or will be achieving a professional technical certification. Topics as to which certifications are viewed as popular, beneficial, good to learn, and which ones really matter. Maybe even, with permission, an area to pass along old books to new students. In an always evolving arena of new products and changes, having a good arsenal of skills is rarely a negative thing.
