It's generally about the skills someone would need in an entry level position just out of school, so it could be either, depending on scale. For example, a vendor with a large market share might be worth having specific skills in. Think Cisco, VMware, Microsoft, Linux. However, monitoring is more fragmented, so having an understanding of monitoring/alerting concepts and techniques might be more useful than knowing a specific monitoring tool.
It's also helpful to try looking a few years out, so consider what you might want a new hire to know in a couple years. You can also note any skills you may have noticed candidates at any level missing that they should have learned in school. For that matter, feel free to mention any skills you see people learning that aren't actually useful...

>> Hello SASAG Friends,
>> **YOUR EXPERT KNOWLEDGE of what Industry training is NEEDED***
>> I have recently become a student member of the Edmonds Community College’s CIS (Computer Information Systems) Advisory board.
>> It's come to my attention that EdmondsCC (EdCC) could use help in receiving feedback from us about technologies we are currently/previously used so EdCC could either update an existing class like a Cisco Class to include such tech as OpenSwitch or add a certificate class for Puppet configuration.
>> I would appreciate it if you could take a minute to respond with what technologies (and job role) you are working with that would be great to have taught in a class rather than self-taught or on the job experience.
>> I will start the conversation with the below that I am familiar with as a Linux Admin/Engineer role:
>> Python, Perl, and curl, for scripting
>> CFEngine (lots of company still have this because it’s been around so long), Puppet (this is the new hotness), and Jenkins for configuration management.
>> OpenSwitch for virtual switches also VMware virtual networking is on the rise at companies that have VMware.
>> VMware – Setup & configure vCenter for a virtual environment along with using vSphere to manage day to day admin/user tasks.
>> Monitoring tools such as: Solarwinds (used mostly for Networks teams to monitor network gear), Zenoss (Nintendo uses this for their entire computer infrastructure), Nagios (this is older tech, but still used), and VROPS (VMware’s monitoring solution).
>> Thank you for your time and info!!
>> Hopefully this will generate some new certificate courses or update existing ones based on your comments!!! <emoji_u1f60a.png>
>> Have a great week ahead and see you at the next SASAG meeting!
