Unfortunately it appears for sometime it is very difficult to get any sort of technical training. I ask and ask like anyone else and the technical training seems to be put on the back burner.
I guess it’s very lucky that I took the initiative of my own to attempt to brush up on some Microsoft skills. The journey so far has been interesting, although I must admit I am not at all looking forward to 70-640 exam. I’ll read the material and then do the usual revision. Hopefully I can pass it on the first attempt, but we will cross that bridge when it comes.
Meanwhile, as I was saying, technical training is hard to come by. So I have sat down and proposed the following training that I am going to complete off my own back.
Sept – 70-640 (attempt to complete the MCITP Server 2008 Administrator certification).
Oct – ITILv3 Foundations certification
Nov – 70-622 (turn my 70-620 into an MCITP Vista certification)
Dec – 70-686 (turn my 70-680 into an MCITP Windows 7 certification)
Jan – Jun 2011 (work through a RHCE book and then attempt to do the exam day to obtain an RHCE, followed by some more Microsoft. Possibly 70-652 and then more Hyper-V stuff).
Wish me luck, of course so items make get pushed back if I need more prep time for exams, but this is a rough guide on what I am hoping to achieve.
