  • IT Refresher Certifications

    I hold a master degree in software engineering, but have been working in other profession for 2 years after graduation and now I want to take a few certifications and get back to the IT industry. Which certificates will be suitable for me? Please suggest me which mode of learning will suit me me as I have almost completely lost touch with the IT sector.

    Re: IT Refresher Certifications

    Are you looking to get into development, networking or systems administration (and what software platforms are you interested in)?

    Learning methodology will be up to you and YOUR preferred style -- you have a choice of:
    Boot Camps (accelerated learning)
    Formal Classes (normal speed)
    Distance Learning Classes
    Study from Books
    Study from Multimedia (e.g. www.trainsignal.com)
    (or a combination of the above)

    Whatever you go for, I suggest you invest in suitable hardware and software to practice with

      All depends on what you want to do.

      Why are you not writing software when you have a masters in it???

        Thanks for the information. I am interested in Microsoft .NET or Java. Not sure which one can kick start my career. Can you please suggest some Boot camp providers for Microsoft and Java?

          For .NET look here:

          For Java look at:

          We don't know where you are so difficult to recommend a boot camp but may be more helpful

            Hello friend:
            I would recommend you to go for java instead of .NET.
            If you want to make applications, the most popular are web applications, and everybody knows java is the best for that.

            This is the course i have done at Koenning and i think it can be a good start point to get into the world of java:
            in.sun.com/training/certification/java/scjp.xml

            If you wants to program desktop applications i would recommend C#(.NET) it is more powerfull and easy than javas swing(from my point of view), but i dont know much about microsoft certification, you will have to find at some microsoft site.

            Also if he wants to program for mobile phones i would not recommend the certification for Java Micro Edition, i would go for Android, becouse it is standarized. Probably there is not certification for android jet, but i think it is worth it to learn about it, it is very interesting.

            Have a look at javas diferent certifications, im sure you can find something you like.

            Greetings
