Free Certifications

By Garth Jones
My neighbor asked me to review the résumé of a newly graduated computer science student. Like most new grads, they don’t have a lot of experience in the IT world. In order for him to stand out from the crowd, I suggested that he get a few certifications under his belt.
You might find this advice to be odd, especially when new graduates have little experience and not a lot of extra money. Brainbench, however, offers a number of free certifications. Why not give them a try?
Please note that Brainbench’s exam list is always changing, so check back often for the most up-to-date information.
Based on the current list, these are the exams that I suggested he take:
· Computer Literacy (Windows 8.1)
· MS SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services
· MS SQL Server 2014 Programming
· MS Windows 8.1 Desktop Administration
· MS Windows Server 2012 Administration
· Technical Help Desk (Microsoft)
· MS SQL Server 2014 Administration
· MS SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services
· SQL (ANSI) 2011 Fundamentals
· Software Testing (refresh3)
