Certification recap: 2018 was Epic

With 2018 slowly fading away, I did a recap of this Year (Certification wise).

2018 was probably my toughest Year yet – but also my most exciting so far.
At the beginning of 2018 I switched to Telonic in the middle of my JNCIE-SEC preparation. Regardless of the new Job, I somehow managed to maintain my pace towards this Goal and on the 3rd of July in my 4th Attempt I became JNCIE-SEC #374

When I checked my CertManager I simply could not believe what I managed to do this Year – see for yourself:

New Certifications:
JNCIE-SEC
JNCIP-DC
JNCDS-SP
JNCIA-Cloud + JNCIS-Cloud
JNCIA-DevOps + JNCIS-DevOps

Recertified:
JNCDS-DC

Getting a new Certification and maintaining in in daily Business can be challenging – everybody knows that. This Year I managed to get 7 – yes, 7!!!!!! new Certifications and recertified one – HOLY COW… Even if you consider JNCIA-DevOps and JNCIA-Cloud not as “achieved” because they were granted due to the JNCIS-DevOps and JNCIS-Cloud – this was insane…
My Goal was to get my first Expert – I got way more than I expected.

Nice to know, that in 2019 I “only” have to defend my JNCIP-ENT and JNCDS-SEC – and my Personal Goal as you know is getting my JNCIE-DC #NoPressure

This pace will be hard to maintain and I’m sure that I won’t be able to do this forever (and luckily I don’t need to) – but the good news is, that I’m still just 29 Years old, always eager to learn new Stuff and if I keep this pace have all 4 Experts before… Nah – I keep this one my personal Secret 😉

Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Looking forward to see all of you in 2019 🙂
