IBM Certified System Administrator, WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Portal
CompTia A+
CompTia Server+

I have also programmed in various FORTRANs (II, IV, WATFOR), BASICs (CBASIC, Quantel), Cs (Lightspeed, Turbo, Microsoft, Tandem), Pascals (Apple, Turbo), APL, PL/I, and scripting languages like VBScript, the Unix shell, Tcl/Tk and Python.
