VNS Certifications Held

VNS certifications and authorizationsThis is where all the coffee, Mt. Dew and Code Red gets invested.  We've all worked, and continue to work extremely hard to achieve, and maintain the numerous certifications that we have earned, and we like to tell people about it.  We feel that it's one of the things that helps set VNS apart.  There are dozens of computer "consultants" in the market, but many either have little to no certification, or they have only cursory experience, and will talk about what they know, but haven't taken the exams that help prove it.  At the other end of the spectrum are folks who are great test takers, but cannot do the work.  We call them "paperboys" or "papergirls" in the business.

Getting certification is by no means easy.  It'd be a lot easier if we all went home at 5pm and relaxed, but many nights you'll find VNS staff members working late, or studying at home, to maintain and enhance their skills and experience.  This dedication and personal sacrifice allows us to provide you with a superior product, our people!

Nearly every single employee at VNS holds a technical certification - even people who are not delivering technical services. This is unprecedented, and is part of what sets VNS apart from the other guys.

We look at it like this: certification is required in any professional discipline, be it law, accounting, or medicine, and we don't feel that our industry should be any different, just because there aren't laws that mandate it.  From day one of VNS, we've operated with this disciplined philosophy, to insure that our customers can expect professional service, and because we all have a passion for what we do.

VNS staff certificationsValley Network Solutions has demonstrated abilities in numerous areas of the computer, networking and telecommunications industries.  Our staff members' extensive certifications are testimony to this.  In fact, we have more local employees with industry-accepted certifications than anyone else in the valley, and more MCSEs than anyone else in a 100+ mile radius.  Even though we're not the biggest by pure headcount, we have the highest percentage of certified staff.  Also, if you look closely at our largest competitors, you'll find that although they appear to have higher qualifications, most of the time they are grandfathered in via their employees in other cities and even states, but that they frequently have little, if any local talent here in the Central San Joaquin Valley.  We do!  Here are a few of the certifications which we collectively hold:
