"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You don't need any certifications. Certifications are good for CV but knowledge and experience is what really matters.
Jim HornMicrosoft SQL Server Data DudeCommented:
Eugene and Vitor are correct in that a certification is not a requirement for a DBA job.

But it might help you land one, or avoid a layoff compared to your peers that don't have one, and will help you land consulting roles where every set of initials is important as it's the basis of selling your services to clients.

Shy of a certifications there are lots of other ways to stand out as a DBA, such as making yourself indispensable at your current job, writing articles (which you can do here at EE), or presenting at various SQL Saturday events or local user groups.
