What Other Certifications Do These Companies Want Me To Have?

RHCEs are typically well established in their careers and as such they are expected to have more than just the one industry certification. Some postings require applicants to hold multiple industry certs while others just “strongly suggest” you hold them (read this as: you will be our top pick if your signature has the complete alphabet soup). In the spirit of transparency, we are a training center so we too strongly suggest certification and we actually teach most of the certs these job postings require. If you have questions about how to attain or maintain any of them, or you just want to know if they are really necessary for landing your dream job we will be honest with you and give you all the facts you need to make your decision.
