Tom,One of the largest centers for high tech employment is in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The city has a Web site at http://www.coloradosprings.com/. If that does not do it, contact their tourist office... there may be an 800 number. Last I knew, Quantum Corp had a facility there. (May be closed or sold by this time). Another company in the storage business is StorageTek in Louisville, Colorado. Their Web site is http://www.storagetek.com/.
As to EMC certification, you'd need to check with each employer's education/training department to see what they would do.
