How qualified are we?

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

Didn't understand some of those designations. But I did see the BA. So I think that's what I chose. I'm also working on a new cert or two in forensics. Had the hard knocks, too, but that wasn't an option or I couldn't pick more than one. SD, on the other hand, has the correct kind of qualifications, being Dutch.

Coming close to a B.S. in BioChemistry; with medical school immediately after (knock on wood). I've got a good deal of professional medical liscensures/certifications outside of that with a couple years work experience in the feild.

My PC/Network/Tech. cred. are in a few entry level certs, with alot of work/personal experience--although now quite outdated by tech industry standards.
