Last September, prior to the conclusion of his Novell NetWare Tips newsletter, my friend Dave Kearns concluded an article on the CNE6 certification with:
So, yes, go for that upgrade to CNE 6. Training is never a bad thing, but training on a system that is still an excellent server operating system, still has a good sized installed base and appears to have a shortage of trained managers sounds like a good career move.
Dave couldn’t have gotten it more right, partly in terms of training being a good thing, but also in ways he wasn’t aware of at the time. Ultimately one question on many people’s minds at BrainShare this year was whether or not there was a future path forward for those holding a CNE6.
