Say “Hello!” to Tom’sITPro, with Yours Truly as Their Certguy!

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

I’ve been writing for various Tom’s Hardware Websites (Tom’s Hardware and Tom’s Guide, to be more specific) since the turn of the millennium, having started with translating articles for them from German into English. That’s because the “Tom” in the Website names is “Dr. Tomas Pabst, MD” and the site’s technical and professional nexus still remains seated in the Munich area in the Federal Republic of Germany, along with a strong international presence throughout Europe, North America, and the rest of the globe.

About two months ago, I was contacted by James Alan Miller, the site editor for a new Tom’s Website, called Tom’sITPro(short for Tom’s IT Professional) a new branded site for the Tom’s empire (now owned by French media company BestofMedia, and with sites in many languages around the world (French, English, German, Spanish, Finnish, Danish, Norwegian, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Mandarin, and perhaps more, because it’s hard to tell how many languages are supported in toto). After a quick and happy agreement that I would serve as their “certification guy” — in much the same way that I write and blog regularly on certification topics for, and also blog on certification right here — I embarked on a series of nearly two dozen articles on a wide range of certification topics for the site.

Today, I’m very pleased to announce that my first Tom’sITPro article posted early this morning, entitled “Training Options for IT Pros.” Check it out to find my coverage of various IT training companies that cover the whole certification spectrum, or those that specialize in various subject areas (vendor-specific programs, information security, computer forensics, and more). I hope you’ll also tune into this great new site, and add it to your favorites as you search for general business IT news, information, reviews, and, of course, certification coverage from yours truly.
