Training opportunities continued to fall by the wayside, according to our 2012 Network Computing Salary Survey. Twenty-two percent of staff members reported fewer training opportunities in 2011; 35% said they'd received no additional training or certification.

When staff members are able to get away for training, they have a 50/50 chance of getting the company to pay for it, according to the survey. Fifteen percent paid for it themselves.

As for managers, 15% said they had fewer shots at training in 2011; 31% received none at all. As with their staffs, 15% of those who were able to work in training paid for it themselves; 56% were funded by the company.
