Train effectively – train immediately with Video Courses from Pearson IT Certification.
Register now for these new online February and March 2015 webcast & workshop events, offered in conjuction with our Pearson Authors and our technical partners.
Over the years, it's been interesting to watch the Cisco Learning Center grow and evolve to better meet the needs of IT professionals pursuing that company's often-coveted certification credentials. Of all the many things that Cisco does right with its cert programs, the company's "Study/Learn Master List" is second to none when it comes to helping interested parties find their way to the right exams, objectives, training, and study/prep materials. If you don't know about this already, you should; if you do know about it, you might want to head back to give it another look, as numerous exams have been (or will be) updated or replaced in the very near future.

Go digital and save 50% off the list price of digital learning solutions -- eBooks, video training, and software when you purchase 2 or more! Customers also receive a 30-day free trial to Safari Books Online, free with any purchase.
After last week's blog post about on-again, off-again discounts on certprep bundles, it occurred to me that readers may want to check into the excellent offerings available at Safari Books Online, a joint venture that involves O'Reilly Media and Pearson among other publishers, and that provides ready online access to over 20,000 technical books via a subscription program. Basically, if you buy 6 or more computer technical books or certification study guides/exam crams per year, you can do better by spending the same (or similar) money to get a Safari subscription instead.
Holiday shopping can be difficult when trying to find something for those high-level techie-types. Gadgets go out of style and it’s hard to know if a specific technology syncs up with what they currently have --- one gift that keeps on giving is learning.
By purchasing an educational product, you are helping a professional learn a new technology or gain a certification --literally preparing them for their future. Below are some of our hot new releases categorized by topic. Not sure about their area of interest? I suggest a subscription to Safari Books Online, where they have instant access to more than one million worth of educational technology books and videos on a variety of technologies.
These days, people are pretty well networked, and a fair percentage -- around a third, by most estimates -- of the world's population has found its way onto the Internet. Apparently, the next big frontier in this dimension is the "Internet of Things" (or "Internet of Everything" as Cisco likes to call it), abbreviated as IoT or IoE, depending on who's talking. These are the billions of devices in our worlds, for everything from thermostats, alarms, and household sensors, to automobiles, houses, and other mega-platforms with which we interact daily. ISACA (the organization formerly known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association) has done some recent research in this area, and has just published a report entitled "Risks and Rewards of the Internet of Things."
The holidays are among us and it’s a time to reflect on what you are most thankful for. We want to thank you for being a loyal customer and give you another chance to win!
I blogged here last week about big opportunities for both certification and employment in the general areas of big data, data science, data analytics, and so forth. Since then, I've gotten lots of e-mail and several other items have posted that underscore my original contention that this is a niche ripe with potential long-term career value for IT professionals.
In the past couple of months, I've started blogging for a couple of training companies -- Upper Training and TrainSignal, to be specific -- and have been writing the occasional guest blog for Anne Martinez at GoCertify.com as well. Add to that my weekly blogs here, and three times a week on cert topics for IT Career JumpStart over at TechTarget, and that's a whole lotta blogging. And because of that, I've returned repeatedly to a free, book-length resource I created for this very own site about two years ago now.
