Depends what you are aiming for ccna/ccnp for network engineers mcse for
you know what, Novell have just brought a new one into the field CLE
which may be interesting as they have just bought suse, there's all the
usual stuff for linux. At the end of the day it's all down to what sort
of job role your looking for and certification is an ongoing thing which
must be upgraded as systems change so saying that in 10 years they won't
be worth much is a bit misleading, I don't get much work on Novell 286
these days but in it's time :) Remember all the bits of paper in the
world can't give you experience and that what counts.

I know a similar item to this came up in the list back in 2001.
to google) This isn't directed specifically at fbsd but as the users
experience as a whole.

I'm 21 been in IT 5 years, don't really have many qualifications apart
some college course and general experience (computers since 93). A
of mine who's just finished his CISSP, has suggested I give that a look
which I admit it does look good since its not vendor specific.

Theres always the Cisco/Microsoft courses, but in 10 years time those
really going to be worth much. Any suggestions on qualifications I
maybe look towards?

Sorry if this is a little off the topic.

Many thanks,
