    J....maybe we can make recommended certification lists based on the category of IT that a person is interested in .

    Eg.
    Web Dev.: - CIW Certs, Zend PHP Cert and MCPD
    Networking: - MCSE -(MCITP), Cisco Tracks, Citrix, Network +
    Security: - CISSP, CEH, CCSP
    Linux:- LPI, Linux+,RHCE
    and others...

    We could also highlight vendor specific certifications for both hardware wholesalers like Dell, HP or even for solutions developers and ERPs like SAP etc...

    Free Thinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, beliefs for privileges. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking; where it is absent, discussion is apt to become worse than useless.

    Ahh.. yep thats what I was tryin to do above the " Suggested Cource" section was intended for that. But I was thinking that it would give the impression that the school listed under it would have cources in it. Like if i put Security + and CEH, and I put CIT under it, CIT dont have CEH...

    I remember a few certs by specific venders like DELL and HP but do they teach them in JA? or just online?

    Maybe a disclaimer is needed then...

    I've gone through the TJa education Threads and cant seem to find any more schools, I found a few in the yellow pages but these are only the onse that actually ahve a picture ad in them since they state what cources they have.

    I will add your suggestions Nas thanks
