Of course, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate does not ensure excellence is no reason for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should pose no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you represent yourself to be a professional, then clients expect credentials. We can broadcast your talents, but you should have basic certifications for Progent to work with.
