Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Topics: Other IT, Certification

You didn't think that I would let the opportunity pass to cite Austin Powers, did you? Hello, everyone! My name is Tim Warner, and I am honored to be your principal author for the InformIT Certification Guide site.

My goal is to serve as your one-stop resource to answer your certification questions and to help you attain your certification goals.

Why am I qualified to help you? For the past 11 years I have worked in the information technology (IT) field in a variety of roles:

  • Director of Technology
  • Systems Administrator
  • Technical Trainer
  • Instructional Designer
  • Author

Specifically, I have authored practice exams for Transcender and PrepLogic (I know all the folks at Boson as well), developed computer-based training (CBT) for CBT Nuggets, VTC, and Atomic Learning, and as a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) I have prepared thousands of individuals in instructor-led training (ILT) sessions to get them ready to pass their certification exams.

In addition, I hold over 20 IT certifications, including the following:

  • Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE): Windows Server 2003; Windows 2000 Server; Windows NT Server 4.0
  • Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): SQL Server 2005 DBA; SQL Server 2005 Developer; SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence; Enterprise Support
  • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS): Windows Vista Deployment; SharePoint Server 2007; SharePoint Services 3.0
  • Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician (MCDST)
  • Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)
  • CompTIA A+
  • CompTIA Network+
  • CompTIA Security+
  • CompTIA CTT+
  • Certified Novell Engineer (CNE): NetWare 6; NetWare 5
  • Apple Certified Systems Administrator (ACSA)
  • Apple Certified Technical Coordinator (ACTC)

The point of all this credential-listing is not to inflate my ego but rather to inform you as succinctly as possible that I have much good and useful information to share with you with regard to information technology in general and certification in particular.

As time goes on I will publish blog posts and longer articles that are (a) information-packed; (b) cutting-edge; (c) unbiased; and (d) honest. Oh, and let me add that I hope my essays involve (dry) humor as much as possible.

Enough about me; the InformIT Certification Guide site is about YOU, dear reader. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, curiosities, or complaints, then please feel free to send me an e-mail message.

Welcome to the site, and let's get down to the business of professional certification!
