scripting a perl install on *nix, including making the workstation usableby Aldebaran (Deacon)

Aldebaran has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello esteemed monks,
This thread is to be seen as a continuation of Using Cartons to automate module installs, where, instead of Cartons, we went with cpanfiles. I worked up a bash command that takes a module list and creates a cpanfile:
The outstanding question is how it would go down in the target environment, and I think the answer is "flawlessly:"
The "output" here is a bash wrapper around this:
The modules I put in this list are ones I consider essential to having a usable perl capability. I might install them as a vanguard.
Q1) What might you add to a list of useful modules to have from the git-go? For example, what might be a good cpanfile to have to deal with universal time?
I would like to take this discussion in a different direction than usual, and I hope not to hit a third rail. As a person who has only used his computer skills "under the table," that is, in the cash economy for small gigs, I'm wondering what the job title is of a person who gets paid over the table to configure and maintain work stations for others in a company. Is it a systems administrator or a network adminstrator? Q2) Do you happen to be such a person who has had or is currently in such a post?
Q3) (Here's the one I'm really fishing for) What certifications does one need to be considered for such a post? I have an opportunity to get some continuing education, but I need to be specific about things I hope to achieve.
I hope the questions aren't too Ami-centric. Heck, let me also ask, Q4) Are these certifications the same around the world?
Thanks for your comment,
