It's that time of year when things both speed up and slow down. It seems like there is almost always a fat rush to cram in activities, visits, shopping, socializing, office parties, and everything else that comes along with the last few weeks before Christmas (and, after that, New Year's Day). Yet, at the same time, everyone is running out the clock at the office, tying up whatever loose ends haven't already been secured and basically waiting for the big end-of-year break to kick in.
Here at TestOut Education, we're in the throes of our last and biggest sale of 2018. From now through Dec. 31, you can get one-year access to our "library suite" — which includes every course in our extensive training and certification stockpile — for just $495. That's a savings of $400 off the usual price of $895. Even around here, however, with Library Suites flying off the shelves, we can feel things slowing down as the team settles deeper and deeper into the holiday getaway mindset.
It's OK if you stop checking in on the old IT Insights Blog for a while, but before you go, remember that 2019 is just around the corner, and it's going to be a interesting New Year. There will be still be snow on the ground in January (at least we hope there will; fingers crossed), but January is also when everything feels new and fresh, and everyone we know will be devoting a lot of time to setting self improvement goals and turning over a new leaf.
That includes, at least in a sense, some of the biggest IT certification brands out there. Take CompTIA: Both the A+ and Linux+ credentials have been significantly overhauled in recent months and the newest version of each will be available in the first quarter of 2019. The best time to get a cert is right after it turns over that new leaf. By the time you need to think about recertification, the sponsor will be refreshing its exam content and you'll get all the latest updates.
If you've been meaning to get an A+ or Linux+ credential, then there's no time like the present to get in on our best pricing of the year. It doesn't get any better than $400 off, and with the entire Library Suite at your disposal, you'll get all of the refreshed content you need to pass the new exams. Besides which, it never hurts to have more than one certification, and the additional knowledge and skills will keep your new leaf (or leaves) healthy and flourishing for years to come.
