But before you invest more time and effort in certification, I'd also urge a quick, informal chat with your supervisor...
to ask if obtaining such credentials will help you advance in your job more quickly, or open doors to other positions within your firm. If they won't help your plans to move into a better position, you may face some hard choices - such as looking for another position elsewhere where more advanced certs will help to boost your career options and development.
