    Well done on the podcast, Rowell. And good job on getting the CWNA done. I originally did CWNA way back in 2002, then CWSP in 2004. Life got in the way, and I didn’t renew them, and they expired. So… I just did CWNA over again, and what a difference between when I first did it and the second go-round. This got me thinking about those who have “lifetime certs”. Wondering what your opinion is on non-expiring IT certs in general?

    1. Rowell says:

      Thanks Lee! I have a two sided response to lifetime certs. I like them, if the person holding them keeps themselves up-to-date.

      On the other hand, someone who has a lifetime cert that cannot perform the necessary duties to troubleshoot and configure networks is not someone I’d like to work with.

      I’m in a phase where certs are only a personal goal of mine and don’t help me professionally at my current employer.

      I know “it depends” isn’t really a great response but I put more emphasis on the kind of engineer you’re working with.
