Certifications

Certifications are an important part of being a consultant in my opinion. There is no doubt in my mind that gaining certifications has helped me climb the "IT ladder" quicker than most. I personally think certifications are valuable when combined with real world experience, my general rule of thumb is to peruse certification in technologies I have delivered projects using. For example when I was in Bermuda I was exposed to Cisco UCS, therefore I spent 15 months attaining my Cisco CCNP in Data Center.
