Which technology certifications actually mean something? Posted on May 21, 2023 by Anonymous Which technology certifications actually mean something?
probably a bunch of vendor-specific networking certs that I don't know about
everything else is compliance regulatory capture trash (CompTIA via DoD) or just irrelevant
Either of you have a suggestion for a study course for the OSCP?
You get access to the PWK (which is the OSCP prep course) when you enroll for the exam. I'm taking it right now and it's a bunch of walkthroughs and exercises to learn the tools and methodology along with the lab environment that is basically a bunch of hack-the-box style machines. Haven't taken the exam yet but it seems like everything you need is in the PWK course.
Anything that fulfills that us dod baseline security requirement, I think like sec+ and a bunch of others work.
CISSP and OSCP for cyberfags. CCNA or whatever vendor equivalent for network admins. The rest are mostly useless. I guess the real basic a+ type certs are good if your just trying to get into a helpdesk job for the first time.
what about Linux certs?
get an RHCSA
Does anyone actually care about that one tho? I never see it in job postings
"experience in Linux Administration"
Only the RHCA (Red Hat Certified Administrator) is worth it from what I've seen. Lot of banks run on it.
Not CompTIA A+, that's for sure :))
Just lie and say you have them, nothing you can't figure out while onsite with chatgpt and google.
Gov and most big companies will request your code to verify with the issuer just like degrees. You'll get caught and blacklisted, not worth it.
none of them. the cert market is just another classic israelite racket. only get certs if your employer pays for them or do as anon here said.
If they don't teach you how many FireWire 400 devices you can daisy chain its useless.
AWS is the 21st century equivalent of a Microsoft cert. If you work with AWS you're just a dumb nagger that doesn't understand computers
CEH is all marketing. ECCouncil needs to go bankrupt.
certified pen, ccna, oscp, cissp, and when you are just starting out in security the baseline of security+ means you arent a retard
experience and the one you carry in your head
Shovel and broom operator, plumbing etc.

I am doing freeCodeCamp while in between college. Am I wasting my time?
