Re: Required Certifications



fixed

John, now it's an entirely different discussion. I would say the most advanced cert for the hardware you have in the network. Cisco has different levels of cert, so I would look for someone that has the Cisco security certification. The prerequisites for that one are sufficient that the engineer will know their stuff. VOIP is a separate animal, and requires a separate cert. Also wrong list for this discussion. I'd carry it over to the PC tech list.

Or are you talking about someone whose main responsibilities are the phone system and the network switches, routers, etc?

First: We are talking about a Power Systems engineer and based on the list IBM i, correct? If so then I would recommend: IBM test: 129 IBM i 7.1 Administration due out October 1 IBM Test: 121 Virtualization Technical Support for IBMi. That credential requires the test taker to pass the Administrator test as well. Also due out October 1. There are V6 versions of the Administration exam, the virtualization exam is new at V7 If you get someone with the virtualization technical support credential, from an IBM i perspective, they will know their stuff. There are several SMEs that monitor this list that help write the IBM certification exams, these two exams included.
