So I've been toying with the idea of certifications and training today. Specifically as they relate to my industry of course but even in such a limited field there are quite a few to choose from; mostly with some crossover into the IT world.
The biggest one is the Certified Technology Specialist or CTS which is the most specific to AV, particularly corporate AV. The next up would be an A+ certification which shows an aptitude for computer systems in a, theoretically, operating system neutral way. The reality of it is that most things in this world are PC oriented and so no matter how neutral you try to be there will be a bias towards Windows.
The other ones I was looking at were perhaps an MCSE or one of the Apple Trainer Certificates. Are you in the entertainment industry? Do you work in corporate events? What's your take on the certifications; drop me a line, I'd love to hear about it.
