TSM - Training & Certification - two step approach

Hallo Newcomer,

i think, "mikeymac" has given to you a very good answer regarding the certifications options.

During the past years i regularly participated i the development of certification tests and i think for passing an exam, you have to follow a two step approach with a practical and a theoretical part:

1.) what you are already doing: "learning on the job"
2.) it it also necessary, that you build up your knowledge not only "with on the job training" but also in a "structured" way - either by attending a standard TSM instruction class/course or by SYSTEMATICALLY reading the manuals in addition to your daily job.

I wish you good luck for you certification.
