About Joshua Hester

 

Joshua has 20+ years of experience as a corporate trainer, coder, technical writer, and engaged student, and balances a broad perspective of the certification industry with a keen obsession for learning about the next Big Thing. Joshua is the Program Director for Kaplan IT Training, a leading provider of IT certification exam preparation. He is both a certified project manager and ethical hacker. His other technical certifications include Microsoft Server, Microsoft Azure, A+, Linux+, Network+, Mobile Security, and Java. He holds a B.A. in English and a M.Ed in instructional design. When not running, metaphorically or competitively, he can be found on a plane playing the latest Nintendo handheld or in a forgotten alley sinking quarters into a retro arcade kiosk.
