The Most In-Demand Certs

In this month's Certification Magazine, Dave Willmer looks at the certifications that are most attractive to employers. Dave explains: "An industry-recognized certification can provide you with a competitive edge whether you’re looking for a new position or trying to advance within your current firm." The top certs are:

Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)

The (ISC)2 CISSP is a vendor-neutral certification that includes: access control, cryptography, operations security, and security architecture and design. CEOs rank security as the second-hardest functional area to fill.

Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE)

The Microsoft MCSE is a great differentiator because you must sit seven exams in order to pass it. Dave points out: "Job candidates who have earned any Microsoft certification have an edge in the job market."

Project Management Professional (PMP)

Firebrand Training offers more than just IT certifications. The Project Management Institute PMP is relevant to project managers in any industry - particularly IT. You need three-to-five years of project management experience in order to sit the course. This, alongside the certification, demonstrates extreme dedication and knowledge.

Certified Network Associate (CCNA)

The Cisco CCNA certification proves that you can successfully administer medium-size route and switched Cisco networks. Students sit Exams 640-822 and 640-816. On completing Exam 640-822, the student automatically becomes Cisco CCENT certified too. Two for one!

How to upgrade your MCSE 2003 to 2008

If you're a qualified Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer who has completed the MCSE 2003 track, you're probably looking to bring this up-to-date with the 2008 technology.

If you're an MCSE - or an MCSA - you have two exams to choose from. Exam 70-648: TS: Upgrading Your MCSA on Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 and Exam 70-649: TS: Upgrading Your MCSE on Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008.

You could make the upgrade in less than a week with Firebrand Training. The six-day Windows Server 2008 Upgrade course prepares you for both of the exams, and you can choose to sit either at our exam centre.

CCNA, MCSE, PMP and MCSA top the big-earners list

Research by Dice Learning has proven that it pays to be certified - with higher salaries dished out to those with the top certifications.

Evan Lesser, Director of Dice Learning, explains: "When you combine in-demand skill sets and proven salary impact, specific certifications become valuable to individual technology professionals."

An example of this is practitioners who gained Cisco Certified Network Associates (CCNA) certification. The "ability to install, configure, run and troubleshoot medium-sized routed and switched networks" - with the handling of security and wireless technologies - means there are more than 650 job opportunities requesting CCNA skills
listed on

Professionals certified as a Project Management Professional were found to be high earners, and those unemployed were more likely to find a new role. Dice Learning claims that there are currently 1,400 jobs with PMP certification listed as a requirement.
Other Microsoft certifications found to increase average salaries included: Microsoft Certified Systems Engineers (MCSE) and Microsoft Certified Systems Administrators (MCSA).
