Certifications

As an IT professional I constantly work on updating my skills and my knowledge and to verify this I have been certifying myself since 1995. As a Microsoft Certified Trainer and working at a Microsoft Partner with Gold Competencies it is also both a requirement and very important to keep my industry certifications up to date.
