About to start my first SCP exam!
Nicely done! It's a bit of a stressful exam--particularly if the clock is getting close to running out, and you might start worrying about not completing it in time.
The certificate's a nice one--worthy of the frame.
You'll always appreciate seeing certs you've earned, and your peers & boss will see them and recognize your formally acknowledged accomplishment. You might be able to leverage it into a pay increase or new job title, or a new job with a different employer. Certificates can be so helpful in so many ways.
Keep up the great work! Do you have your eyes on new certificates/training already?
Thanks, everybody! For those who have asked, the Success Center's certification study guides really are all you need to pass the test. Reading the getting start guide, installation guide, and admin guide will not only help you pass--simply reading them will make you more effective at your job!
I chose SAM first because it is where I have focused my time and energy in my role. That said, I think NPM makes the most sense for a follow-up because it really is the core of anything that uses the Orion platform.
